My ThinkorSwim Platform Setup (VIDEO)

"The five essential entrepreneurial skills for success are concentration, discrimination, organization, innovation and communication." - Michael Faraday

A couple of weeks ago, I moved the Challenge Project Trading Account to ThinkorSwim as my brokerage.

At the same time, I've received not a few requests, to demonstrate how my platform is setup within my trading brokerage. For those that are new? A trading platform is the software that a brokerage offers to install on your computer, that allows you to interact with various capital markets on an electronic basis. Usually these 'platforms' are customizable.

So I'm going to combine both of those subjects. I will discuss the trading platform setup that Icius helped me customize some time ago for other accounts. As the Challenge Project progresses, you'll see this same setup in my Trading videos ...

Note: This is not an investment or trading recommendation. The losses in trading can be very real, and depending on the investment vehicle, can exceed your initial investment. I am not a licensed trading or investment adviser, or financial planner. But I do have 13 years of experience in trading and investing in these markets. The Challenge accounts are run for the education of other traders who should make their own decisions based off their own research, and tolerance for risk.
