The Most Comprehensive Trading Software Available
ThinkOrSwim is a great platform which gives you as a trader all the tools you'll need.

It has a ton of tools needed to do the most comprehensive technical analysis if you want to. You can easily set up a lot of screeners and studies within the software, but it also gives you the opportunity to go real deep with writing in the ThinkScript language.

You can find so much information online about the software which can be overwhelming in the beginning. I recommend watching the videos in the Learning Center of ThinkOrSwim itself.

When first starting out with TOS you'll have to change some settings to get real-time Level2 quotes, don't really understand why they don't have this preset for you when you install the software.

The commissions for day-trading can add up as they're pretty expensive compared to other online brokerage accounts.

super fantastic once you get use to it
Great platform once you get use to it. Make sure you watch a few videos to make sure you know how to set your charts up. This platform has everything you need as a trade level 2, time and sells, multiple charts and scans.

Love the Platform
The ThinkOrSwim platform is arguably the best platform out there. I use the charting package and level 2s for all my trading. Although I trade with a prop firm and use a different platform to clear through I would highly recommend the ThinkOrSwim Platform. It's a little pricey, especially to trade small. With a small account you have to nail your entries and stick to your guns because $20 round-trip go destroy your profits.

Customer service is great. I've had to call in a few times to talk with a rep and they are always friendly and helpful.

Excellent
I use TOS for nearly all my trading and the platform is fantastic, easy to use, and has the capability to do a tremendous amount of analysis if you should be into that. Primarily, my purpose is fast executions with prices I try to receive and they do that. customer service is excellent as well.

If you're a beginner or an expert trader, TOS is for you.
I've been using TOS since 2005. Before that, I've used Scottrade and Etrade.

One of the main reasons why I made the switch was because I used to use a company called Prophet.net aka Prophet charts. Back then, this company had the best charting software on the net. This is important especially for someone like myself that is huge on Technical Analysis. TOS acquired them and with that move, I became a TOS user.

If you're looking for the best possible paper trading program, this is it. For option traders, if you're looking for the best possible risk profile graphs, this is it.

USED to be good, NOW this company SUCKS - Stay far away
I pay $1.25/contract. Trading butterflies with $38000 I pay about $4500/ year. Thats 12% of my account value. 12% for submitting my orders!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Submitting my orders is the same as forwarding an email. When I called to ask what makes them worth 12%, they hung up on me!!!! This is the worst customer service I have ever encountered! They do not treat their customers respectfully. This company really went downhill after TD took over. I can't get filled on my orders without paying $.20+ over mid price. They messed up my margin so I can't trade as much, They send my 'open orders' as 'closing orders' to the exchange causing them not to go through right.

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS COMPANY SUCKS now. I will only use them for my charts but will not be trading with them anymore. They are NOT worth 12% of my money.
