  1. After almost 2 years trading on DAS I switched to TradeStation platform and brokerage services. I have done a lot of the leg work researching so I am highlighting features for TradeStation s/w platform and brokerage: Instruments & Commissions Structure: STOCK & OPTIONS - currently zero commission trading plans are limited to US residents. Residents in almost all countries outside the US can sign up for plans with commissions on stock trading. Canada and a few countries in Europe are excluded from brokerage subscription plans. All foreign residents can sign up for a software subscription plan. Contact TradeStation directly for more info - they will try work with you. - lightning fast executions - Level 2 DOM (depth of market) matrix - TS gives volume at price per bar, on all time frames from monthly down to 15 seconds. ... - Stock trading 8am -8pm ET - Direct routing is possible for a per share fees similar to IB - with "intelligent" (zero commission/SMRT) routing order flow could be sold to third party market makers for execution.

  2. I posted an overview on TradeStations software and brokerage platform under the "Brokers" subsection bc I figured for most day traders paying for trading s/w and possibly data feeds without being able to directly trade from the platform makes no sense. Most traders therefore will have to make a decision about signing up for both the use of the software platform as well as their brokerage services. There's also been a few threads from others so search the site for those links to read up more about TS too.
