Need Replacement for Tradestation

Recommended Posts

Well, today is the day, when I finally got tired of Tradestation it seems, so I am trying to get feedback on what other platforms are out there with good datafeed. I daytrade stocks and ETF's, not a swingtrader, so I don't want to pay $10 per trade. This is what I am getting on TS right now and I just can't work with this.

Anyway, I am open for suggestions....

 

Thanks very much!

if you have custom indicators/strategies written in EasyLanguage, then

MultiChart/InteractiveBrokers is my choice.

Angela-

Tradestation is not able to trade equities prior to 8 a.m. The bad tick looks like 7:30 a.m. How did this affect your day?

This sort of thing is often a signal of potential market action and not worth too much emotion.

APPL charts don't show this tick, so it was corrected off.

Power555, APPL wasn't the only one affected by this, I just showed that one, and there are a lot of people on TS Forum, who have been affected. This happened last week with DIA and SPY as well, and have had issues in the past with connectivity, so I don't feel I am acting on emotions here. I found out, if I reload the chart, it gets corrected, however the matrix is affected, too, therefore I can't trade, nor do I trust today's charts based on this.

 

I am checking out the above options, thanks guys for that and see what else is out there.

Hi Angela:

 

My data was off today as well at TS. CME was $1.6 million per share at one point. I was trading AAPL when my screen re-set and and the price was replaced by what appeared to be volume bars.

 

Another alternative platform is NinjaTrader/IB. From what I've seen, and I'm not all that seasoned at trading, all of the data providers and platforms have bad days from time-to-time. LightSpeed is also supposed to be good except under volume duress. As previously stated, you can use your TS indicators, etc., in Multicharts.

I am sure all TS users are aware by now that TS has introduced a network protocol patch that seems to be mandatory by May 1, 2009 that will be required for all builds of TS.

 

Whether this is a good thing remains debatable, because we don't really know what it does. If this is a way for them to throttle clients with excess network bandwidth usage during trading hours, it may be a good thing. If it indiscriminately throttles all bandwidth, it may be bad. Hopefully, this will bring some stability to the network and prevent future outages.

    • There is no point asking this question as we know women have now entered most of the fields of business. You might remember this ball busting study which found that women make better investors than men, because they are more risk-averse. 
    • The stock market going up is not a reflection of a healthy economy as created by rationally minded entrepreneurs and investors; it’s going up because the people who have the ability to make it go up also happen to be the ones who’ll benefit from it the most.
    • Landora This thread illustrates a couple of things that humblepieasant hopefully/probably learned 1 day/short term trading is for the few, not the many.  Finding systems that optimize win rate with risks is formidable.  Finding such systems that are also self compatible is exceedingly rare. 2 posting is expensive.  ie It really doesn’t pay short term or long term to give if you don’t got... 3 the need for the kind of “accountability”hp mentioned above is - in a word - transitional.  ie Accountability needs to be turned and referenced inward instead of spread outward... 4 hp would have been much better off trading “a small "live" account through the end of January, then a small "practice account" account beginning February, ... then back live. ... 1 Don’t just look for an edge.  Look for an edge that is also true to your nature.  If an edge is not true to your nature, you will still never be able to make it work consistently. 2 Post what you are learning and see. 3 Post what you are trading and see. 4 See.  ... maybe decades later... All the best zdo
