Yes. If you go to their website, you will find an option to get the Tradestation software and data feed by itself.

I'm not going to go check on the current cost, but I tried it a few years ago, and it was something like (my memory about it is vague) $150 or $250 per month. That's why I only tried it for a short while....

Check the site for the current offer and cost. (Who knows, maybe it's not that high any more....)

Bob.

Update: well, I decided it wouldn't be responsible to just leave this reply without actually checking what they currently are doing. The web site has been carefully designed to channel anyone who comes around into opening an account, or speaking to a rep. Basically, I don't see how anyone could find out, now, whether they still offer this or not.

So I can say that they used to, and the cost was so outrageous that I don't imagine that they just gave it up, but I can't actually say that they still do. You may just have to actually contact them to find out, which will be a sales encounter.

No there isn't. Optimus carries the TradeStation software now, and it is $99 per month with a funded account.
If you trade 10RTs, ie 20 futures trades it is waived.

Thanks,

There's the answer, I guess.

I did find it. The fee is pretty hefty, basically what I remembered.

You'll need to be using TS just for charting and to make decisions, but will need another trading platform with some broker for trades. This is sim only.

Here it is:




The link to the page on their site is here:

Scroll to the bottom for these rates.

@bobwest, I stand corrected. I never inquired about the sim only version, for obvious reasons.
Just as an FYI: 10RTs a month also entitle you to the RadarScreen and Maestro as well.


Thanks,
Matt

I apologize. However, the pricing I provided is not unique to Optimus, this is for TS brokerage as well.
The other facts that are promotional will be deleted as per request.
