TradeStation Review

April 12, 2024

TradeStation has a freshly updated mobile app, but the company will probably always be known for its flagship desktop platform. All brokers let you follow your investments, and some provide solid research. TradeStation focuses on finding opportunities. Infrequent and low balance traders should watch out for steep inactivity fees.

Pros & Cons

thumb_up_off_alt Pros

  • The web trading platform is well thought-out, especially its wonderfully customizable watch lists.
  • If you’re willing to learn the proprietary EasyLanguage, you can code completely automated trading.

thumb_down_off_alt Cons

  • The user experience can be frustrating.
  • Mutual fund orders must be phoned in.
  • No third-party fundamental research is available, and everyday investor education is thin.

Commissions and fees

The retail-oriented TS Select pricing plan offers $0 trades, includes some free market data and has no monthly platform charges. Traders may have to subscribe to data they could get free or less expensively elsewhere, depending on what and how they trade.

TS Select: TradeStation's most commonly used pricing structure includes access to all three of TradeStation’s trading platforms. With TS Select, all stock trades, including ETFs, are $0; options trades run $.60 per contract; and futures are $1.50 per contract (per side).

TradeStation Salutes: TradeStation encourages active military personnel, veterans, and first responders to sign up for the TradeStation Salutes program, which offers free stock, ETF, and options trades. Good on you, TS.

Penny stocks: Under TS Select, penny stock trades are $0 for the first 10,000 shares and $0.005 per share after that (and an extra $0.005 per share if you direct the order to a specific venue).

Inactivity fees: The inactivity fee is a bummer. It’s $10 per month, which is waived if you trade 10 times in the prior 90 days or maintain an average equity balance of $5,000 or more in the prior month.

Other fees: Like all brokers, TradeStation charges incidental fees, and TradeStation’s fee schedule is complicated. We noticed the charge to transfer out, whether it’s some of your positions or all of them, is $125, which is high. There’s an annual IRA fee of $35 and a closure fee of $50. IRA annual fees are unusual.

Paper checks: TradeStation does not mail paper checks. A representative told me via a chat this policy is to prevent the spread of COVID-19. That strikes me as odd. I imagine a broker of TradeStation’s size would use automation to print checks and send them out. Strangely, they do accept paper deposits from retail clients.

Mobile trading apps

TradeStation's new mobile app has a fresh design that feels friendlier than the last version. You can see your account positions on the mobile app, but beyond that, there’s little commonality between the standard-bearing desktop platform and the mobile app.

Thanks to Matrix (ladder) trading and complex options trading support, mobile day traders can zip their money around the markets with ease. The app is smooth and responsive, and bracket orders are supported.

Watch lists and hot lists: While mobile watch lists automatically sync with the Web Trading platform, they do not sync with the TradeStation desktop platform. On the positive side, there are dozens of predefined screeners available in the Hot Lists section to scan the market.

Charting: In my last review, I said TradeStation’s mobile charting was awkward, and I’m happy to say that’s no longer the case. Mobile charting is much improved.

The chart area is clean and includes most features a casual trader would want: four chart types, seven drawing tools, after-hours visibility, active and filled order visibility, and a good roster of indicators, though nowhere near the staggering array of choices on the desktop, which is fine. There isn’t a landscape chart view, but the charts are so crisp that I don’t miss it.

Other trading platforms and tools

TradeStation offers three other trading platforms: TradeStation desktop; Web Trading, which is a browser-based platform designed for traders seeking simplicity; and futures options traders should check out Futures Plus, which is available on browser and mobile.

Finicky traders (like me) will gravitate to the desktop platform. Unfortunately for Mac users, it’s only available for Windows. Happily, I had no difficulty running it on my Mac laptop (M1 chip) running Parallels Desktop.

TradeStation desktop tools: The functionality provided in TradeStation’s flagship desktop platform is chock-full of widgets. Tools in the TradeStation arsenal include Radar Screen (real-time streaming watch lists with customizable columns), Scanner (custom screening), Matrix (ladder trading), and Walk-Forward Optimizer (advanced strategy testing), among others. Using TradeStation's proprietary coding language, EasyLanguage, traders can even code apps for the platform and make them available in TradeStation's TradingApp Store.

TradeStation desktop user experience: I have a 55-inch monitor on my desk, and when I’m using TradeStation’s desktop app, I still find myself wishing for more screen space, even if it makes my eyes roll around like a chameleon’s. Other brokers’ desktop apps don’t leave me with that feeling. It’s partly because TradeStation is powerful enough to make me feel as if I could view all the opportunities in the market… If. I. Can. Just. Configure. Everything. Just Right.

That brings me to another point: Don’t expect TradeStation’s default settings to knock your socks off the first time you boot it up. There’s a learning curve and endless tweakability. If you can’t find what you’re looking for among the hundreds of technical studies and indicators, you can code your own solution using their proprietary EasyLanguage, or go even further by coding in entry and exit rules to automatically trade your positions.

The tools are great, but we think its user experience comes across as a bit stale compared to the other top desktop platforms we reviewed. Some of the widgets remind us of Windows 95. Happily, that only applies to the desktop version and not the web platform, the mobile app.

TradeStation desktop charting: More than 30 years of historical data are viewable for stock charts, which is stupendously great for backtesting strategies. Furthermore, close to 300 indicators/studies are available, many of which can be reworked or adjusted to your specifications using EasyLanguage.

Options trading: Options trading is a breeze using OptionStation Pro, a built-in tool within the TradeStation desktop platform designed for streamlined trading and robust analysis. Options tool capabilities include custom grouping for current positions, streaming real-time Greeks, and advanced position analysis.

Futures trading: Futures traders will also find themselves right at home with the TradeStation desktop. Many of the advanced tools used for trading equities apply to futures trading, creating a seamless trading experience.

TradeStation web: The browser version is easy to use and gives traders a way to manage active positions, open orders, set up watch lists, conduct stock chart analysis, and place trades with ease (ladder trading via Matrix included). The chart-trading functionality alone is excellent. As a reminder, watch lists don’t sync with the desktop, which is a bit annoying for traders who use both.

Research

Like its nipping-at-its-heels competitor tastytrade, TradeStation is not built for performing the thoughtful, in-depth company research you’d find in a Wall Street analyst’s stock report. It is, however, excellent at finding trading signals. Do you want to find stocks with a Three Stars in the South candlestick pattern? Sure, no problem.

Stock research: You’ll find full stock and options screening, equity backtesting, and streaming futures and forex data. You can use fundamental data in backtests, custom indicators, and trading rules, but you’ll have to hit the books; the fundamentals aren’t as fully developed as the huge menus of preconfigured studies driven by price, volume, time, and volatility.

You can create indicators and rules that combine both technical and fundamental data. It takes a deep and long dive into the thorough TradeStation documentation to do it, but any reasonably proficient theoretical physicist or software engineer should have no problem whatsoever.

ETFs and mutual funds research: TradeStation does not offer the PDF reports available at many other brokers.

Market commentary: In-house writers provide high-quality, news-driven content on the home page under the Learn tab. I think it deserves to be more prominently featured and separated from the educational content. The news feeds offer excellent filtering options.

To sum up the research capabilities, if you like to find and develop your own trading ideas, TradeStation should be one of the first brokers you consider. If you prefer to rely on others’ opinions on stocks, you’ll most likely be disappointed. You’ll find more analyst write-ups at industry leaders such as Fidelity, Charles Schwab, and E*TRADE.

Final thoughts

Active traders will feel right at home with TradeStation's desktop platform. It ranks among the best for rules-based trading. Casual traders will appreciate the TradeStation web trading platform and the mobile app, thanks to their simplicity and ease of use.

Here are our three top takeaways for TradeStation:

  1. TradeStation’s unique advantage lies in its desktop’s customizability, but you’ll need to invest time in learning it.
  2. The mobile and web trading platforms are good starting points for beginning traders if they can avoid paying the inactivity fees.
  3. Long-term investors hoping for Wall Street analysis and financial planning calculators will be happier at other brokers.

Popular Stock Broker Reviews

Can TradeStation be trusted?

Yes, TradeStation can be trusted. It’s a well-established broker that traces its roots back to 1982. TradeStation is regulated by the Financial Industry Regulation Authority, or FINRA, in the same manner as other online brokers in the United States.

Is TradeStation good for beginners?

We think there are better trading platforms for beginners for people who are just starting to invest. TradeStation’s target market is active traders, not novices. It doesn’t have nearly the depth of educational content and isn’t as easy to use as our 2024 Best Overall winner, Fidelity. TradeStation also charges inactivity fees if you keep a low account balance and trade infrequently.

Is TradeStation easy to use?

TradeStation’s web trading platform and mobile app are easy enough to use. The desktop application has a learning curve, due to sophisticated tools and a less intuitive user interface. There is, however, a host of tutorials for the desktop app.

Is TradeStation really free?

TS Select, the broker’s most commonly used retail pricing plan, offers $0 stock and ETF trades, up to 10,000 shares, on all platforms. Options and futures contracts do carry fees. Regulatory bodies and exchanges add on small costs, but that’s true for all brokers. Small and infrequent investors should be wary of a steep $10 per month inactivity fee, which is waived under certain conditions.

How much does TradeStation cost per month?

TradeStation recently simplified its commission structure. Retail clients pay $0.00 commissions on ETF and stock trades up to 10,000 shares. The mobile, web and downloadable trading platform are free and there are no minimum deposits. Military personnel and veterans can get a unique pricing plan, TS Salutes.

What is the minimum deposit for TradeStation?

There is no minimum deposit at TradeStation to open an account or use its trading platforms. You will need $2,000 to use a margin account, but that’s a regulatory requirement that applies to all U.S. brokers. Maintaining a trailing 30-day average equity of $5,000 avoids inactivity fees.

Does TradeStation have withdrawal fees?

Outgoing wires are $25 at TradeStation. There is no fee for an ACH withdrawal. Paper checks are not available.

Can I day trade at TradeStation?

TradeStation is an excellent choice for day traders, thanks to its sophisticated downloadable trading platform and day trading margin of 25%.

Can you trade crypto with TradeStation?

You can trade BTC, ETH, and USDC on TradeStation. We awarded TradeStation the Best Crypto Technology award in 2023 for its TradeStation Crypto platform.
