Hi Avery and Michal,
This last trick from TradeStation has made me seriously consider responding to their arrogance by simply closing my account. But this is not the only reason - have you watched as TS has gone from #1 to becoming an old maid with an outdated and very clumsy programming language, a very poor system that is not intuitive to the average trader - or even the average programmer, a system that works one way when backtesting and another way when going live and a third way when automating a strategy?
What are other good alternatives? I have narrowed my choices down to Meta Trader, Ensign and Genesis. Each have their good points and I feel that they all surpass what TS has to offer. I also believe they are much more user friendly, even though they are not a fully "robust" system with too many functions and modules that take months to comprehend.
Would appreciate your comments on these choices and other choices you feel I should consider.
Thanks for being the honest and open support to us that TradeStation has never been.
Respectfully,
Reb

Reb:

If you are trading Forex then www.efxgroup.com is the broker for you.

If you are scalping stocks, TS is the way to go.

Swing trading stocks then use TD Ameritrade or InterActive Brokers.
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU TRADE, IT'S HOW YOU TRADE IT!

Please do NOT PM me with trading or coding questions, post them in a thread.
