Trade Station is an online stock trading platform that offers a broad range of trading services, including stock trading, futures, options, ETF and foreign exchange. It has some of the best rated software and third party analysis in the business, but due to high minimums it is probably geared more for the professional or active investor, over the smaller more casual one.

Trade Station has been in business for over 30 years and its strength is in its powerful trading and analysis software. Their trading platform has received Barron's #1 rating for in best trading and technology, as well as their top platform of choice for frequent traders and international traders. There is no shortage of accolades for this broker. Investor's Business Daily has ranked them #1 for equity trading tools, and they have appeared in the top 5 for their options platform, ETF choices, reliability and overall experience. The Trade Station website lists many other high rankings from other major financial publications. The serious investor looking for the top technology in the business ought to give serious consideration to Trade Station.

Commissions and trade fees are competitive with other online brokers. Stock Trades are $6.99 each if you make 30 or more per month, $7.99 for 10-29 trades per month, and $9.99 for 1-9 trades per month. Commission on equity trades is $.01 per share up to 500 shares and $.006 per share after that. There is an option for new clients to trade free for 60 days after opening an account. However, as mentioned Trade Station charges hefty fees for not meeting certain minimums. You will pay a platform fee of $99.95 if you don't make 10 or more trades involving 5000 or more shares each month. This will likely send the less active investor to another broker with no or lower minimum requirements.

The website is well organized and easy to navigate, and customer service options are prominently laid out at the top of the main page with options to call a toll free number or get online assistance. Setting up a new account is a simple process and the research tools and resources we found on the site are impressive. With a huge array of products and services, award winning technology, and competitive pricing, Trade Station is a great choice for an active investor.
