TradeStation Traders: Switching to a New Platform

Due to a steady drop in user participation over the past few years, we are ending our partnership with TradeStation in order to focus our efforts on our more popular platforms.

While traders may no longer begin a new Trading Combine with TradeStation, those traders currently using TradeStation will be allowed to continue their evaluation until they earn funding or end their subscription. This allowance will only be in effect until February 1, 2022, at which point all traders using TradeStation who are not in a Funded Account must move to an alternate platform.

Traders currently trading in a Funded Account will be allowed to maintain their account with TradeStation until they either close their Funded Account or break a rule. Once a funded trader closes or loses their TradeStation account, they will need to choose an alternate platform if they wish to continue trading.

February 1, 2022

Cut-off day for all TradeStation users in the Trading Combine. All traders using the TradeStation platform at this time will need to choose an alternate trading platform.

Choosing a New Platform

Below is a list of recommended platforms to choose from with links to connection instructions. These are our most popular platforms and have similar charting and indicator packages to TradeStation.

  • NinjaTrader®: If you value a windows-based desktop download trading platform for the freedom of using multiple screens and customizing your workspace, then NinjaTrader might be your best choice. 
  • TradingView®: All of your favorite tools and indicators, and then some, are available to you on the TradingView platform.
  • TSTrader®: Fits into your lifestyle – when and where you want to trade. The full platform is available on any device with a web browser. 

All three of these platforms offer a demo practice account for you to use to get more familiar with the product before making the switch.
