TradeStation takes crown in Barron's online broker rankings

TradeStation ranks at the top of the list in Barron's latest online brokerage rankings.

What pushes this software-based firm to the top is its incredible trading technology and its powerful analysis, charting and backtesting capabilities. The system, like a Porsche 911GT3, isn't for everyone: The average TradeStation customer puts on 640 trades a year, far more than the typical buy and hold client would ever need. That's why it's our top pick for the frequent trader as well.
Good stuff. I'll have to research the 23 companies that they ranked. My own broker came out near the middle of the pack.
