ThinkOrSwim has the best tools for options traders
I have traded options at many options brokerage firms. TOS has the best tools for trading options. For example, OnDemand permits you to back test tick by tick, not simply closing prices. There is a huge collection of technical methods (called studies). You can write your own technical methods. There is no platform fee and no fee for minimum trades. This means that beginners can learn to trade using paper money and using a fantastic trading platform. After TD Ameritrade acquired TOS, I gained TD Ameritrade's research and its Trade Architect. With the Trade Architect, I can see quickly a large number of ways to structure options trades. TOS promotes free education. You can listen to daily swim lessons and chat with other traders. Tom Sosnoff provides on YouTube and elsewhere high quality instruction on options trading with programs such as tastytrade. You will find more detailed instruction for free than you will find in some seminars or training programs costing thousands of dollars. If you have an IRA account, you can move it to TOS and trade options in it.

Best charts for trading stocks and options I have found
Open an account with $500 and you get free charts, execution and market data... very good charts, execution is exectly what you need for day trading, and the free data saves me hundreds of dollars every month. The only thing I would complain about is the higher cost of commissions, but thats where they make their money I would assume. I only take 5-10 stock trades each month so its a savings for me and something that a new trader will benefit from in my opinion. very easy way to get started learning and trading stocks. highly recommend.

Great tools, great price
This is my favorite charting and execution software platform so far. It has all the features I need and its FREE with my TD account so it def fits my budget as I learn to trade. the only thing I would improve on is to add more chart types and the ability to plot the entries on the chart, but other than that I think this has all the essentials... hope this review helps!

using Think or Swim
Did some platform research probably not enough. Made a decision to use #thinkorswim for two reasons. I'd been thinking about it as the go to opinion. Then I found site called. tastytrade.com. The main man at there Tom Sosnoff, the originator of Thinkorswim. Always there is a startup company with Tastytrade called #dough. Dough.com. Via Dough you can register for TDAmertrade Account. And I'd advise it. You'll be happy. But decide for yourself. If you'd like more input @phippsjm on Twitter thats me. I work for none of these folks. I have a ThinkorSwim account which I use trading daily.

Best Platform
I just recently switched my account from E Trade to TOS a few weeks ago and its amazing. I've been learning some tricks with it and have been trying to watch more videos. The only complaint is that sometimes its laggy but overall this is an amazing platform.

Best platform out there
I was introduced to Think or Swim two years ago from a mentor and I will never switch. The mobile app is a big plus as it is pretty close to the real platform. I work and have a family so the mobile app allows me to follow trades and get updates that I need. You would expect there to be a delay with execution but it is very very good!

Personally I do not use too much of the extra studies they provide but they look great. One of the cool items that I learned is that you can invert your charts. My mentor taught me the trick and when we take trades sometimes we look at patterns using that trick.

Happy to be a client.

Damn good trading platform!
Was first introduced to ThinkorSwim through Investools a few years ago. At the time I think ThinkorSwim was a paid service. After a horrible experience with Investools I stepped away from the market and didn't think it was for me. After I found a much better education program I'm back at it and doing well. ThinkorSwim is LOADED with features! Once you get the hang of it you'll love it's ease of navigation and many useful features. Even if using other brokers for cheaper commissions I'd highly recommend ThinkorSwim for charting.

Also, ThinkorSwim is part of TDAmeritrade who has AMAZING customer service!!! I'd rate customer service ten checks if possible. Seriously the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with, stock market related or not. I actually enjoy phone calls with TDAmeritrade. Whenever I've had an issue they were very prompt at resolving it.

Execution I gave 3 stars because I have had issues with executions but that may be user error. As I open with more brokers the larger I grow my funds I will most likely still use ThinkorSwim for my charting. I see it being hard to beat, especially once you're use to it.
