Tradestation futures options

I'm considering creating a Tradestation account to trade Futures and Futures options. Specifically the TS Go account. Does anyone here have any experience with them? Are they good? Do you need a minimum amount to trade futures and futures options? Would highly appreciate some feedback

IB (TradeStation) option for mainland EU - your opinion

Given that I reside in one of the lucky countries where DeGiro does not operate - can you please share you views on the IB (TradeStation) questions, with the noob that I am:
  1. If Tradestation goes bust - what then? Does IB stand behind? Any protection at all from EU? (100 k? anything?)
  2. How relevant is IB for EU given brexit thing?
  3. Does IB (TradeStation) option do the taxes for you?
Thank you for any opinions, or links to read on.

Anyone here using TradeStation Global for options?

They're just an IB introducing broker, but with no inactivity fee. Not much info on reddit.

Options Backtesting

Hey everyone, got a question for you all.
Can you take a strategy/algorithm for an underlying, say SPY, and trade it using options and somewhat achieve a similar profitability?
I want to trade options on an intraday strategy using weekly options, and monthlies if not available. If I have an overall net profit of say $100 per share over the testing period, could you reasonably assume that trading ATM options for every trade will give similar results? I figure if I can get strikes as close to underlying then the net profit will be based on intrinsic value added and lost. The reason I ask is that I have no way of back testing this via options, tradestation is great but they dont offer historical options data. As soon as the option expires, I cant access it. Wish they would change that.

References for buying an option on tradestations API?

Does anyone have any references for placing an order for an option through the tradestation API? I don't mind which programming language, I'm just looking for a reference.

Non-US-Residents, What Trading Platform Are You Using?

submitted by Steve2398132 to Daytrading [link] [comments]

Why doesn't anyone talk about TradeStation?

Hi everyone,

The recent negative news about DEGIRO (300k by the Dutch regulator) made lose my faith in DEGIRO, so I am thinking about moving my portfolio. I've literally spent my last two days on reddit trying to find a good alternative. I am very well aware the IB is probably the best (at least the most favored), but my portfolio is way below 100k. So, when I found TradeStation it seemed too good to be true.
For those who don't know it, in short, TradeStation Global is an introductory broker to IB. You basically get access to IB, same protection, same application, your account will be held in IB's database etc. Transaction fees are a little bit higher than at IB, but there is no $10 inactivity fee or any other fee. So, TradeStation actually suits well those who pursue a long-term buy&hold strategy whereby they buy basically ETFs only once a month. So, even if transaction costs are a bit higher, you're better off with TradeStation and you still get the same benefits as with IB (except stuff like fractional shares).
Brokerchooser even ranks them as the nr #1 broker for those who pursue a buy & hold ETF strategy. Apparently, it is even cheaper than DEGIRO and better protection for sure.
Given all this, I still barely see people talking about TradeStation on /DutchFIRE, /eupersonalfinance, /EuropeFIRE or similar.
Is there any catch that I'm not seeing? Do you guys think it is a good alternative to DEGIRO (considering safety fears around due to recent events)?
Dankjewel guys!

Tradestation or TOS

I currently have TOS and I’m thinking about switching to tradestation select. Who uses tradestation and what are the pros and cons?
submitted by icedogs01 to Daytrading [link] [comments]

Who else uses robinhood just to check price action and their watchlist? Tradestation, Webull opinions

I use fidelity and TOS to trade but their charting and watch list are lame AF. Maybe I'm just not boomer enough.
Has anyone tried TradeStation? Is it worth giving it a shot? Looking into webull aswell.

Need a broker to trade MES Options.

So recently CME added options to micro contracts such as MES, currently i use tradovate to trade but they have yet to add micro options. Does anyone use a different broker that has micro options working? Kinda upset with tradovate for not being able to add them even though they came out august 31st.

What are you all moving to? There has to be a better platform??

I have tried Trade Station, Fidelity, TastyWorks, and even WeBull.
Somehow ToS has the best interface. It is the easiest and most intuitive to use, very customizable for multi-monitor setups, and everything is high-contrast and easy to read. I am absolutely mind-boggled as to how WeBull is the only one giving them a run for their money in the user-interface, but they aren't as customizable or easy to interact with. Tradestation looks like it
But the sluggishness, instability, and random bugs with ToS are never ending and will never get fixed at this rate. They don't even inform customers when they are having issues, what the issue was and what they are doing to fix it, and when the issue is resolved!! How simple is that, communicating with your customers??
What in the hell do I even do? I am definitely moving brokerages because I have paid over $8000 in fees to TD just this year. I already know it is going to be painful. I loved having everything in one spot - charting, positions, alerts, etc...
I am so disappointed in the application development of ToS. It really is a damn shame.
I guess my plan is to try out WeBull for the day to see how fast the options prices update, see if I can get a feel for it as a whole. Tastyworks interface is too complicated and does not utilize space efficiently, I might consider Fidelity but the interface is just lackluster as a whole.
Honestly, WeBull is the only one that seems to have a competent, modern user interface. The app feels so much more modern than any other applications I am using, even though its not 100% geared for options trading and the charting is more basic
Just imagine what ToS would be with a competent CTO and a complete application overhaul...

Which broker would you choose? My options are limited!!!!

First of all, no, Degiro does not accept my country (Romania).
Second, I already have az InteractiveBrokers account and I want to have a second account with another broker. I will use this account for my play money (10% of my net worth) to buy individual stocks once in a while. I will do 0-5 orders a month.

According to my research the only good options I have are: tradestation and saxo bank.
More options are trading 212 and xtb.

From these brokers, which ones would you pick and why?

End Game: Warp lanes or Shipment Relay?

Just unlocked the 6 million credit cap limit and once I upgrade 3x tradestations and a few 6mil research items, I plan to go full balls to the wall and go for the 8mil cap only upgrading planets with some minimal research along the way. Only notable stop along the way will be the 7.2mil battleship upgrade of course.
That being said I took a look at the endgame options for handling shipments and for some reason I'm surprised to see the endgame options cannot be fully automated or cannot be automated any easier. My main belief up until checking recently was that you don't get enough warp lanes to connect to all planets... Here's the way I see it:
So here are my questions about endgame shipment handling:
1) Upgrading shipment relay from level 9 to level 10 @ 8million costs seems NOT worth it due to the total 85K gas cost. Sure I can relay 4 more sectors, therefore covering 100% of all sectors including the 3 trade stations but the gas cost seems detrimental. Currently relaying 14 sectors costs 55k and the extra 30k gas seems not worth it.
2) For some reason I had always assumed once you unlock the 8 million credit cap limit you can buy as many warp lanes as you want until you can connect every planet and trade station as one big network, thereby allow ship. The reality is warp lanes will not be able to cover 5 planets shattering that dream. Additionally unlocking the last few warp lanes at 8million a piece and getting shipment drone bonuses seems moot. By that point credits don't seem to matter other than for some 8mil+ higher upgrades or researching stuff just for the hell of it. Mainly I'm annoyed that your planets will be generating shipments ot 5 planets that can't be automated and you will have to periodically grab those shipments from all on lane planets and handle them manually.

How I Built a PC for 1.6k yet not good enough for trading

How I Built a PC for 1.6k yet not good enough for trading
Hello all,

I remember reading a post here about someone looking to build a PC. A lot of people responded of what they thought was the best PC build. I have built a 1.6k computer not know again anything about PC and built a WAY overpower PC but yet not good enough for trading.

I wont take up space writing what I have in my system but here is the PC part picker list so you can see:

Running Tradestation 9.5 with three screen 27" 4k, 27' 2k, 25' 1080. ( Got rid of the small screen since graphics card was not able to handle it..... kinda)

So I have done a ton or research reading into what each part of PC part does and how it will effect the system. Here is a summary of what I found out and what you should look out for.

[B]1st. What platform are you using and how many programs are you running[/B]. EX; I run tradestation and it can use a max of 12 cores but needs a higher GHz CPU rather than more cores. If you are backtesting you want more cores but for daily chart trading and switching between charts you want higher GHz.

[B]2nd. How much RAM do you really need? [/B]I am running 16 charts with 1 year of data on 5 min chart. about 5-7 tabs of google chrome open and watching youtube with more a ton more to use.

[B]3rd. Graphics card?[/B] Try to go for Display port if you have 2k or higher and you dont need a top of the line a so called "budget" gaming card will work.

So how did I mess this up? Take a look.

That is when my computer is at the highest of the day. Running all charts and windows. You can see I have very very use on CPU or GPU.

Today I saw some horrible lag coming off tradestation when trying to change charts and I had no idea what was wrong cause my task manager showing me everything is under 10% plus my pc was a chilling 40 C so what was the issue? Well I turned off all of windows system visual appearance package. What does that mean? Here is the link:,option%20to%20disable%20all%20the%20effects%20and%20animations.

In the end of my wild run I can say what ever trading system you are using or planning to use look at what you need and what is the max that program can use. Built a PC for you trading style not pre built or those high end gaming pc. You can built a great trading computer for less than $800.

APIs offered by brokers and data platforms

I’ve been looking for a broker that has an API for index futures and ideally also futures options. I’m looking to use the API to build a customized view of my risk based on balances, positions, and market conditions.
Searching the algotrading sub I found many API-related posts, but then when I actually read them and their comments, I found they’re often lacking in real substance. It turns out many brokers or data services that have APIs don’t actually support index futures and options via the API, and instead they focus on equities, forex, or cypto. So here’s the list of what I’ve found so far. This isn’t a review of these brokers or APIs and note that I have a specific application in mind (index futures and futures options). Perhaps you’re looking for an API for equities, or you just want data and not a broker, in which case there may be a few options. Also, I’m based in the US so I didn’t really look for brokers or platforms outside the US.
If you have experience with these APIs, please chime in with your thoughts. Also, I may have missed some brokers or platforms. If I did or if you see anything that needs correction please let me know.

Portfolio discussion

Hello all,
I'm a relatively new investor. As I started investing I wanted to maximize risks and started investing in individual stocks over Trading 212 platform. Over a small time frame I was lucky to have grown my starting investment quite rapidly. I feel this luck can't follow me forever, so I wanted to open a new Tradestation Global account and trade all of my single stocks for more diversified ("safe") ETFs.
Now after some investigation I am torn between two portfolio options:
  1. The "classic" portfolio that undervalues US stocks because of the information from the link. The US market seems to be quite expensive regarding CAPE and PE valuations, while EU, Japan and EM seem to have much better valuations. This is why I cam up with the following PORTFOLIO. All the ETF are accumulating, located in Ireland with physical sampling, except US ETF that has synthetic sampling to avoid getting taxed on the distribution. The negative about this portfolio is the lack of small-caps from US and EU.
  2. The "RAFI" portfolio that weights stocks based on fundamental (financial) metrics, instead of the classic market-cap weighting. I have found very little info about this type of ETFs, as it's pretty new. The portfolio would look like this. The RAFI etfs are quite limited and come with some drawbacks: small fund sizes, distributing, no Japan exposure and higher TER. The logic behind this kind of ETFs seems sound, and the limited returns available show that it beats the standard indexes like S&P500.
What are your thoughts regarding these two portfolios? Are there any glaring drawbacks? Of course I don't expect anyone to be able to tell me what the future will bring, but wanted to hear your thoughts.
P.S: I'm a Croatian citizen (part of EU), if it makes any difference.
Best regards

Starting trading as a minor

Hey, I am a teenager who is interested in trading. Mainly ethical trading, but I don't know if thats relevant to my question. Apps like robinhood seem nice because of their simplicity, but I noticed you have to be 18 to use them. So I guess my only option is a custodial account.
I see sites/apps like Loved that seem nice, but also many other sites like Schab, Betterment and Tradestation.
Does anyone have any advice on what I can do and what platform I should sign up for?
