TradeStation - Trade & Invest Reviews

    Amazing desktop platform, weak mobile app

    The desktop version of Trade Station is superior to anything else out there I have ever used and I have tried every well known platform out there, however..... the mobile app lacks very basic things that are included in many other brokers mobile apps like the following: #1. Under orders tab, there is no way to view order fill history on orders over 24hrs old. This requires the user to go online or the desktop to get information like “fill time” or to look at old position details. #2. No option risk analysis. When placing an order with options, there is no Max P/L or spread analysis like you would get with most other mobile apps. #3. No “Show Order” on chart for older positions. If you want to see a horizontal line of a fill you got a few weeks ago, you need to draw it yourself. This goes back to the order tab issue. #4. Very limited Technical Analysis tools. You get about 10 upper studies and 10 lower studies. Would be nice to see all standard indicators or maybe even the ability for custom indicators like TOS allows. #5. No tick charts, range charts or renko charts. This is provided by many other lower end brokers. #6. No calendar events on chart like dividend, earnings, etc. TradeStation has been around for a long time(since 1980’s) and in the era of mobile life, it would great to see them step up and get on the competitions level with there mobile app to provide the mentioned features.

    Not the best. Beware

    TradeStation is a fine platform for any kind of trading you’re into. The desktop application is awesome but all other applications (web, iPad, iPhone) are not good at all. The layout of the app is not intuitive, the charts and studies could be better (you can’t even change sell and buy colors on an RSI study) and the balance and position report is just humerus. Today I am reporting a loss even though I sold my position for a gain. It makes no sense. If you plane to trade on a PC, TradeStation is great! The fees are super low, the platform is responsive and it has unlimited customization. Anything else and it’s not worth the time or stress. I tried to put in a buy on the iOS app and there was so much delay, I tried to cancel it. The order said it had been cancelled but 15 minutes later I got a notification that it had just went through? Thankfully I ended up making money on the position but this shouldn’t happen. Do not trade on the iOS app. It is not reliable, it is slow, and sometimes it won’t even open at all. Then you have to delete it and reconfigure your charts to how you had them before. Think or swim is such a better platform and something TradeStation should strive to be like. 2 stars only because of the great margin rates, trading fees and pc platform. You can do better, TradeStation.

    Logout screen bug with Face ID

    Please address this bug... It is annoying! When I logout of my account the login screen has a software coding bug that attempts to log you back instantly using Face ID as you are looking at your phone at the time. Since the iPhone version uses Face ID there's no way to stop this re-logging back in unless you are quick in facing away from the phone screen. Suggestion: On logout the landing page / screen should not be the login screen. Use some informative screen showing market behavior or watch list that could be personalized.

    Ridiculous

    I realize that the world is not normal these days and that we all need to exercise extra patients. However, I think two weeks is long enough to wait for a human to acknowledge a request. I submitted a request to weeks ago for access to option trading. I received a Robo email saying that they got my email and that pretty much they get back to me as soon as they could. Well, I still haven’t heard from anyone. I did try to call but of course no phone service due to COVID-19. At this point trade stations customer service is garbage! I am normally an understanding person and I try to give folks the benefit of the doubt. I just feel strongly that two weeks, it’s actually been longer now, is ample time to wait for a response. This is literally costing me thousands of dollars!!!!!!!

    Love the desktop version but NOT the mobile app

    The most annoying bug is that I am not able to maintain the quotes list. I delete two-three items, then the app freezes and the deleted tickers show up again. This “feature” has occurred in the last three versions of the app . A year ago this was not an issue. I also don’t like the order entry of OCO Type since the stop orders are defaulted incorrectly. Should be higher than the entry limit sell short order and lower than the limit buy order. Please make sure your developer have basic understanding of order types or make sure your business analysts verifies your developers work. Do you have a test team involved prior to deploying new versions of this app? Any regression testing procedures in place? That’d be nice. Thanks

    Missing Position Information

    The Position screen shows all symbols for my stock purchases but position data is shown for all symbols except two and sometimes three symbols. After one of the symbols with missing data is selected for Chart display (displays correctly) and then return to the Position screen, that symbol shows position data but a different symbol is displayed with missing position data. The P/L Total reflects data only from the displayed positions. I have six winners and nine losers. Random winners and losers show missing data.

    Simple and easy to use

    TradeStation Moble is a very simple and easy to use app. I like the option of clicking and dragging orders and the use of the trading matrix. I noticed that your quotes (watchlist) once created on the mobile app that it wouldn’t show up on the desktop version, etc. I emailed in to support and was told that this wasn’t available yet. They listen! Later on I was emailed that the feature was now available! Awesome.

    Stay away from this platform .

    I got my first Margin call my balance went under 25k so they decided to only allow me to close out trades. I closed out my trade and my was over 25k and I still wasn’t able to trade. I had wait a few days to continue trading . I resume my trading a few days later as my account went under 25k momentarily i was stoped from making trades again . I waited a few days and I still wasn’t able to trade even tho my account was over 25k . The platform does not tell why you can’t trade you need to call the trades desk for answers . Is it been about 2 weeks and I still can’t trade at this point pulled out all of my cash and put in Robinhood where I can trade freely. This platform was a horrible experience me .

    Constant disconnect/otherwise great charts

    Constantly getting disconnected killing accuracy of trades and very frustrating while trying to think clearly. This has to get fixed ASAP! Already contacted mobile support and heard back about a month ago. Replied to ask status week or so ago haven’t heard anything. Other than this major issue app is pretty good. Charts are very nice however I would suggest removing or moving all the labels for indicators etc on chart since they’re usually in the way when trying to plot points or see highs. No reason to have them there.

    Mobile app has severe latency issues

    I’m a big fan of the desktop platform but the mobile app has severe latency issues, especially when trying to place an order. Every time I do so a big spinning wheel appears for at least 4-5 seconds saying “retrieving positions” when in fact I have no positions in my account. I’m just trying to place an order quickly. Also there seems to be no way to disable the order confirmation pop-up which again adds to the latency of placing an order. Overall this is a terrible experience if you are a savvy trader looking for speed. And it is definitely not my network since other apps on my phone work great. Please fix these issues Tradestation!

    Matrix but needs more customizable..

    The TradeStation app is amazing. But it needs more work. I have made suggestions such as showing the volume bars on the matrix page similar to the platform so you can see where the most buying volume has happened at certain prices. Other things like being able to take the options page off and making other items available. Also showing the red volume vs the green volume would be a huge plus in future updates. I switch between TD and TradeStation because the app doesn’t provide it all.... YET....?? Keep going developers!

    Great Platform on PC but app needs work

    I like all the features that TradeStation offers on PC, and I understand that porting it to a phone app is a bit tough, but order entry could use some improvement. It’s not very convenient to place orders when you can’t easily reference the charts. Also, while the auto-sizing of the chart when scrolling through it is a useful function, there are times when background dragging is preferred instead of auto-sizing. Please give us the option to toggle between the two.

    Absolutely Excellent App

    The Tradestation mobile app is by far the best performing mobile trading experience! It's lightning fast and responsive. May I please request a feature - when adding a bracket profit or stop loss order, please make it possible to insert respective level either by ticks, %, price or $ value of move and show the $$$ value of the profit taker or stop loss level. That'd add great convenience instead of manually calculating this.

    Poor app, poor customer service

    The app is nothing special and disconnects all the time. Options data doesn’t load sometimes or loads and then the connection times out. TradeStation margin department can constantly change their requirements and never notifies customers that requirements are changing. They issue margin calls and then liquidate your position. Calling and talking to someone is equally off putting as their answers seem canned. No notification is passed through the application to notify you of these issues, and when they’re resolved (I.e. you do what is asked, customer support never follows up to assure you that everything is taken care of).

    Tech support is unable allow me to log into my account

    My error message states that my account is not associated with an international account, you will be redirected, hit ok, same message, hit ok, same message,,,,repeat.... I have asked tech support to allow me to log into my account. The first fix was to delete and reinstall app on iPad. Done, didn’t work. Second, restore iPad to factory resets. Done didn’t work. Deleted app after factory reset. Done didn’t work. This has now been over a month with this same problem. The company has no interest in fixing any problems. If you have any tech issues you are on your own. It is very frustrating.
