you might want to create a separate thread for your request to keep this thread on topic. The minute increments are fixed in TS, all you could do is use a higher increment or switch to second charts.

1) How long have you been using TradeStation?
19 years

2) What are your favorite features of TradeStation?
Ease of use, Easylanguage is easy to use for basic programming, extremely powerful, very customizable.

3) What are some must-have deal breaker features in TradeStation that you could not do without?
Easylanguage, semi automated and automated trading strategy development.

4) Do you use TradeStation in simulation mode only, or do you place live trades with it?

5) Are you a discretionary trader or an algorithmic trader? How does TradeStation help you with this?
Both - I've developed my methodology and tools that I used to use for discretionary trading into a 90% automated system. Still enjoy discretionary swing trading.

6) How easy/hard was it for you to learn to use TradeStation?
Easylanguage is very intuitive - wasn't too difficult but took some long days and nights to become proficient. I still utilize programmers for the very complex involved automated strategies that use OOEL. My OOEL is very sparse and wanting!!

7) How do you rate TradeStation's customer service/support, assuming you have needed to use it?
Very infrequently needed, but when I have, I'd give them an 8/10.

8) Do you believe TradeStation is competitively priced?
As competitive as others. A few cents here or there is really irrelevant in the long run in trading unless one is trading a type of HFT, then Tradestation is a killer!

9) How do you rate the community support that exists for TradeStation?
Below average for very complex projects.

The main reason I still use TS is for back testing. I actually have another account I use with Cannon trading for actual trading but I know easy language and got used to it and don't want to learn another language so i am still using Trade Station. CHarts are amazing. Excellent back testing etc. However when it comes to speed, cost, day trading margins and service, the guys at Cannon are way superior....
