"As market volatility continues in 2021, the price of Bitcoin reached all-time highs and the cryptocurrency market value broke past $1 trillion, these #1 accolades make it clear that TradeStation Crypto has the infrastructure in place for our customers to fulfill their trading objectives with ease and without interruption."
StockBrokers.com's 11th annual Broker Review reviewed 11 brokerage firms on a total of 2,816 data points that were collected over three months and were assessed within eight main categories: Commissions & Fees, Research, Platforms & Tools, Mobile Trading, Offering of Investments, Education, Ease of Use and Overall.

"In our testing, we found that TradeStation has one of the most robust desktop platforms we've ever seen. As a leader in trader technology, it earned the top award for Platform Technology in 2021. No question, TradeStation is a winner for Futures Trading, Options Trading, Mobile Trading, alongside specialties such as Day Trading and Professional Trading," wrote StockBrokers.com. "TradeStation offers great tools through a platform suite that includes desktop, web-based, and mobile variations. All three are terrific.
