Plantation, FL, March 12, 2012Barron’s magazine awarded TradeStation the highest star rating – 4½ stars – in its annual review of online brokerage firms, now in its seventeenth year.  TradeStation had a higher star-rating than 23 other offerings from  leading online brokers, including TDAmeritrade, Charles Schwab, Fidelity, E*TRADE, Scottrade, Merrill Edge, and optionsXpress.

TradeStation was named “Best for Frequent Traders”, as well as receiving a top-ranking for “Trading Experience & Technology” and for “International Traders” – a testament to its provision of advanced trading tools and online brokerage services spanning the equities, options, futures and forex markets.

The review highlighted TradeStation’s breadth of offering and powerful analytical tools, stating: “you can trade just about everything in this powerful downloadable software platform, including forex.  TradeStation gives you the ability to create your own trading system based on a variety of technical and fundamental data, and test it using decades’ worth of clean data.”

“To be so highly rated by Barron’s yet again is a great honor for our company,” said Salomon Sredni, CEO of TradeStation Group, and COO of Monex Group – TradeStation’s parent company.  “We compete for very active traders who require advanced analysis, superior speed, high-quality data and execution, automated trading, and low commissions. We also compete for serious traders and investors who need a wide variety of trading, scanning, and testing tools. Both types of traders can and do use TradeStation to elevate their trading.  As our top ranking for trading technology and experience indicates, we are committed to meeting each active and serious trader at his or her level, and giving them the tools they need to get to the next level.  We appreciate this recognition by Barron’s, for which our employees deserve much praise.”
