For option analysis, option combination execution, and commissions, how would you compare Trade Station with Think Or Swim? Is one noticeably better or worse?

I prefer Thinkorswim for options analysis and execution. Commission are higher generally at TOS.

Thanks for your response. Last year I used solely TOS for option trading, and commissions ate up 15% of my
gains. I did OK but did not like TOS commissions. And as a result my questions related to Trade Station.

Welcome. I have an OK commission structure with TOS ($1.25 per contract) so it isn't too bad with them. The analysis capabilities and other functionality of the platform keeps me there.

I did take a look at TradeStation, and their option analysis for equity options is very appealing. But their option analysis for
futures options which uses Futures + is abysmal. (If I am not mistaken.) Also there is a $99 inactivity fee.
So I would have to give TradeStation a thumbs down. Are there any other choices that are in the same league with TOS?
Thanks again.

You should not give them a thumbs down, because one of the better platforms out there.
the $99 dollar could be avoided by trading ONLY 10 round turns.
We carry trade station, and we could provide it for a few months without any charge if you want
to give it a try as far as execution.

Thanks,

You are right. TradeStation is one of the better trading platforms, but not for futures options. Their futures options
analysis is on a scale of 1 to 10 a 1. Their equities option analysis appears to be very good.
Thanks.

Tradestation is the best 'charting' platform out there in my opinion.

I tried and currently use several platforms, but when I want to analyze a stock and draw areas of support, resistance, trendlines, etc. nothing beats Tradestation. It's my platform of choice for stock or futures analyses. Also, like Ninja there is a great number of indicators available which is nice. It's also a good platform to test strategies (on stocks and larger time frames I would say), easy to code, many breadth indicators, etc. They also have some great research articles on custom indicators and strategies, which I just love and will provide you with a myriad of ideas.

For options, yeah... TOS is clearly unbeatable.

There is no perfect platform. It all depends on what you want to do. That's why I use NT, Market Delta, TS, TOS, etc. etc.

You can trade Options via CQG and a new platform called OptionsWorkshop: Option Workshop
We can hook it up via CQG,

Is the Option Workshop a part of the CQG Integrated Client as shown on CQG.com ?
Can you share an email for questions?
Thanks.

I believe it is a software that operates outside of the CQG platform but uses the CQG data. If you PM me, I will share a contact there.

I think I will start a new thread for this software because this is a TS thread.

Thank you,
