Tradestation demo

I watched this video at: What Is the Best Charting Software? |
and the chap has some good stuff to say about Tradestation. I have a few questions based on the analysis in his video:

1. Can I demo this software?
2. Does Tradestation show volume in a graphical format at bid and ask?
3. Does Tradestation show the average trade size?
4. Is there a list of all in costs per round trip like Ninjatrader has on their website?

It sounds like the platform has some cool features. I wont be exploring chart indicators as I trade purely price action, however, from what I can tell, the power of futures trading lies in the ability to see the order book in real time and also see real time volume metrics. Ninja trader has the DOM and there are tools developed by GOMI (I havent tried them yet) that graphically show volume on candles and within the DOM.

Does tradestation have features built in that match these GOMI tools?

Many thanks.

There are no Demo versions of the software, but I can give you a tip. They say you need to deposit $5000, but in fact you can just deposit $500 to open an account. Their new policies allow you to use the platform with only a $500 deposit into your account. Then you can use it in live or sim mode. After that there are no monthly fees, they got rid of that. So, it's fairly easy to get into tradestation now.

"Single-Tier plan to get the free CME Globex data for Nymex CL and we also provide free market depth data on this plan."

| The Tiered commission plan has lower commissions but the software data may no lnoger be free on this plan (99.95. monthly fee for software, wavied if you trade more than 20 contracts in a calendar month, and CME Globex with Nymex market depth is $25/month on the Tiered commission plan)."

This is quote from email from TS. For CL it is 6 USD for contract, but this is all. No software or data fees, nothing additional. And you can trade 1 contract monthly .

What do you mean by "2. Does Tradestation show volume in a graphical format at bid and ask?" Can you attach a screenshot?
