An Honest Review Of Tradestation 2015

Tradestation Review 2015

Tradestation became a brokerage back in 1982. Since then it has taken pride in the fact that it’s a leader when it comes to trader technology. It offers one of the best platforms out there for traders everywhere. It brings over 30 years of solid experience to the table, and is taking all that with them into 2015.

Fees and Commissions

Tradestation doesn’t offer support to all trading types. That includes futures and forex. This review is aimed on their equities and options. They have 3 different commission structures you can choose from for the equities, and another 2 for their options.

NOTE – Mutual funds aren’t supported through this platform and therefore have to be phoned in.

In some ways Tradestation is like Interactive Brokers, MB Trading, Lightspeed, and more, in the fact that they do require that clients purchase real-time data feeds before they can trade.

There is on main fee that new clients need to watch for – the $99 a month charge for their software. This fee can certainly be waived, that is, if specific activity levels are reached (or your account is at the $100,000 level). If you’re an equities trader, then you have to trade at least 5,000 shares a month. If you’re an options trader, then it takes 50 contracts to avoid paying this fee.

Tools

Tradestation has tools that will cater to any type of investor and that includes hedge funds. Over 40 years of solid historical data can be made available for trading equities. For those who like to chart and study, this is ideal. When it comes to functionality they can offer back-testing via Portfolio Maestro as well as customized scanning of market opportunities.

Charting gives investors a way of performing deep analysis and customizing indicators using numerous options. This is a thing that only their competitors like TD Ameritrade‘s ‘thinkorswim’ platform could match up to. Over 150 studies/indicators are there for inclusion. Investors can adjust or rework them to their exact specification.

Tradestation also features other tools like their Scanner, Radar Screen, Walk-Forward Optimizer, Matrix (ladder trading), and much more.

Review Of The Tradestation Trading Platform

TradeStation Review

Since it became a brokerage back in 1982, TradeStation has taken great pride of its role as one of the industry leaders in trader technology. It offers one of the best trading platforms available anywhere. It now has over 30 years of experience behind it, and it continues to improve and grow on into 2014.

Tools & Platforms

TradeStation has a desktop platform as its flagship product. It is its main core focus. Trading on the web was introduced as far back as 2013, but its current use is mainly for placing trades and managing positions and orders whenever the desktop application is out of reach.

There are multi-monitor traders who really appreciate the flexibility that TradeStation offers, as it supports multiple monitors enabling each monitor to maintain an open desktop workstation.

TradeStation has the tools to cater to nearly any type of professional investor. That includes institutions like hedge funds. Over 40 years of their historical data is available for performing equity trading, involving charting and studies. The backtesting done via Portfolio Maestro along with the customized scanning of market opportunities, only scratch the surface on all of the functionality they can offer.

The charting enables investors to get into some deep analysis and to customize indicators using multiple options. This is something that only competitors like the TD Ameritrade‘s ‘thinkorswim’ platform is able to compete with. Over 200 indicators and case studies are also available for inclusion. Each one of these is easily reworked or adjusted to fit with a trader’s exact specifications.

The option traders have by no means been forgotten. This is due to OptionStation Pro (a tool that is built into the platform). Scanning and analyzing potential trades has become a breeze, with traders able to view the traditional 2D and also the 3D P&L (profit and loss) charts. This is a benefit that is exclusive to TradeStation only. While having the 3D views is a nice addition, ultimately, they are more like good eye candy.

TradeStation also has a few other tools in its arsenal, like Radar Screen Matrix, Walk-Forward Optimizer, Scanner, and more.

One of the last crucial parts of TradeStations tools is its own proprietary coding language (EasyLanguage), that empowers traders to run wildly with indicator and trade customizations in their strategies. Clients are able to share/sell their work through the TradeStation TradingAPP Store, which was formerly known as the Strategy Network. There you can find FREE products as well as some that may run you around $50 a month, while others can run as high as $500 a month.

Over the long term, their TradingApp store expects to be something worth keeping an eye on. It was not formally launched until late in 2013. As of January of 2014, a lot of the apps still don’t have reviews listed. It is difficult to gauge the popularity because TradeStation doesn’t display the number of clients who are using each specific app. One thing you can count on though, is that these apps were not meant for new investors. They’ve been built specifically for those investors who are experienced and seasoned, and those institutional traders who know and understand all the ins and outs of the marketplace.

Learn Forex trading With Demo Accounts

Pips Wizard Pro

Any broker who wants your money in a live account will offer you a demo account; it’s the ‘norm’. But is demo trading; and are demo accounts, really required? The answer is a resounding yes. The broker will entice you in with the ability to open a trading account with a very small amount of money; they will offer you lots of leverage. Alarm bells should be ringing in your head at this point – if it was this easy to make money, why isn’t everybody a millionaire?

A demo account and demo practice is necessary for long term success as a trader and there are many advantages to beginning your Forex training on a demo account. Try not to be enticed to the action and excitement of trading real money because as a new trader, you lack the skills required. A demo account will give you the chance to get used to the trading platform and to make silly mistakes. “Whoops I just bought instead of sold” – at least that mistake didn’t cost you anything. “So, that’s how position sizing works”, “Right, now I understand leverage” -those mistakes will blow up your first live account quicker than you could possible believe. Keep your Forex training simple and learn Forex trading the way it will help you the most.

Ultimately, the best way to get the most from your demo trading and demo account is to treat it as real. Admittedly, it doesn’t have the same emotional requirements as live trading, nor the euphoria and excitement. However, it does have the ability to teach you the mechanics and techniques of trading and the chance to create and test a trading strategy, for free.

When you first start to learn Forex trading with your demo account keep a log of all of your trades as you would if it was real. Follow your Forex training strategy entry and exit rules (test that it works). Try to remain as focused and “true to life” as you would if it was real. Otherwise, there is little point in the exercise. Imagine your progress as a trader in stages – your first stage is demo trading. In order to progress to live trading you have to get to stage two. Now set yourself a target in order to get to stage two. It could be based on time such as aiming to go live within 6 months. It could be based on profit, such as aiming to go live once you grow the Forex training demo account by 10%. It could be based on statistics such as aiming to go live once you have done 100 trades with a greater than 55% win rate. It doesn’t really matter too much how you decide. Just make sure you know that you have a vastly greater chance of longer term success if you spend time practicing on a demo account if you decide to learn Forex trading.

 

If you want to Forex learn trading you will need to practice on a demo account. Our Forex training course will provide you with a demo account as soon as you start.

Reasons to Use a Demo Account

Pips Wizard Pro

When it comes to trading Forex it is important that you have significant experience and practice, which can best be attained through using a demo account. Using one of these accounts gives new traders the opportunity to practice their trading skills and strategies without using – and risking – actual money. Using demo accounts to practice trading Forex means that you can see which strategies work and which don’t so that when comes to trading on the actual Forex markets you can do so with an effective strategy in mind.

 

By starting off your trading career by practicing on s meta-trader demo account will give you a good understanding of how this platform works. The metatrader 4 demo account has a number of features and tools that traders can use to sharpen their skills, as well as get accustomed to using the platform before accessing it live. One particularly good feature of the metatrader 4 download is that it does not expire and other than the credit balance there are no limits so you can keep practicing your strategies until you are completely satisfied with them.

With the Forex demo account there is virtually no difference to trading to real money. As with a real account you will be expected to comply with the rules and regulations of trading Forex, and you have full access to customer support as you would if you were using a live account. You can also use the live chat or email support for answers and assistance related to your online trading.

Upon opening your metatrader 4 demo account it will be issued with $100 000 of virtual money that can be used when making bids and executing trades. However, should your bids and trades be successful you will not be able to draw this money from the accounts as it is only a demo account and this currency is virtual and for practicing with only.

When using a demo trading account you will learn how to manage risk properly. This means that if you make bids that do not go as expected then you will have the practice and knowledge to get out of the situation. Using a demo account is a great way to learn about the risk that trading poses and to learn how to judge and predict currency and market fluctuations.

Keep in mind that it isn’t just novices who take advantage of free forex demo accounts – experienced traders use them to test new strategies as well. Ensure that you are very familiar with the trading platform by using a demo account to hone your skills.
