Looking for an alternative to the Thinkorswin platform.
Hi guys and gals,
Firstly, thank you Big Mike for providing this opportunity.
I am a Futures and Options trader based in Australia. I do a fare bit of spreading thru observation and manually calculating the appropriate variables, it can be quite intense and demanding. Recently I saw a demo of the Thinkandswim Platform and was left quite enamoured with their Pairs Trading and Beta balancing features in particular and features in general. Unfortunately, they are owned by TDAmeritrade who don't accept accounts from Australia. I am hoping that someone on here might know of a platform that has these features or one that has the capability of inputing code to create these features. Hopefully. something that is not too complicated as I am not particularly computer literate and would probably end up driving them crazy with questions.lol
Just a quick update. After a lot of searching online, downloading and checking out various platforms I think I have found what I am looking for. Because I will have to purchase it after the month trial period and run it's own data feed I won't mention it's name on here. Although once I give it a good run, and know it's strengths and limitations I might be able to post a review here depending on the site rules, it would be an independant traders appraisal. I will have to check with the moderators. This would save a lot of legwork for future people.
