TradeStation Also Earns “Top 3” Ranking Among All Brokers in the Categories of Best Options Platform and Educational Resources

TradeStation, a Monex Group company and award-winning* broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, has been ranked the “Best Online Broker” for Equity Trading Tools and among the top three online brokers for Best Options Platform and Educational Resources in the seventh annual survey of active investors conducted by Investor’s Business Daily (IBD).

“TradeStation scored highest for equity trading tools among the brokers in this year's survey, and historically it has been the category leader,” according to IBD. “Its platform is rich with features.” While noting that the company has long catered to active self-directed investors, IBD noted,“TradeStation built its platform to serve everyone from the beginning investor to the experienced trader, giving users the ability to scale up as they grow in confidence.”

Martha Krawczyk, Vice President of Marketing at TradeStation Group, Inc., underscored this point, telling IBD that TradeStation is broadening its outreach to "clients who may or may not aspire to trading full-time for a living but who are interested in . . . managing their brokerage accounts on a daily basis."

IBD also singled out for praise TradeStation’s OptionStation Pro options trading and analysis platform. “A new organization of tools and streamlined navigation increased the efficiency and ease-of-use for clients,”according to IBD. “OptionStation Pro provides the analytic depth that TradeStation is known for with its robust database. Working with spreads? TradeStation boasts that its SpreadMaster technology helps track performance for custom spreads. You also get visually appealing profit and loss charts, customizable columns in options chains and more.”

The IBD Best Online Brokers Report, published in the January 28, 2019 edition of IBD, is one of the largest of its kind, with 2,762 self-identified active investors rating their experience and satisfaction with their primary online broker in 14 categories.

“We’re honored to be recognized by Investor’s Business Daily as America’s “Best Online Broker” for equity trading tools,” said John Bartleman, President of TradeStation. “Even as we reach beyond our traditional client base to welcome beginning and aspiring investors into the TradeStation family, we remain as committed as ever to producing stock and options trading tools that are second to none in the industry.”
