Hello out there!
Hopefully this message finds some Aussie Options traders that have been using ThinkOrSwim to trade U.S Options "Don Kaufman" style?
Those of you that do will know by now that TD Ameritrade have made the decision to discontinue all Australian operations and our accounts will be shut down by December.
If you have been trading Options the way Don Kaufman teaches you will understand just how devastating this is to our strategy as the ThinkOrSwim platform was pretty much perfected for trading options his way.
If anyone out there knows what I'm talking about and knows an alternative platform in the U.S that will suit his style I would be ever so grateful to know which that is.
Alternatively, if anyone trades U.S options and you have a platform that you'd recommend I would like to check it out.
So far I've looked into OptionsXpress and as fancy as it looks, it actually doesn't allow you to perform the very basic functions that we need. Well not that I can see anyway.
What I require is a platform that has the ability to firstly display all of your aggregate positions across numerous products into a simple table that displays the Greeks in a live format. Second, I need the trade analysis function to be able to be fully customizable so that I can take my current overall position and project it forward in time and at different intervals in and out of the money. I have attached 2 pics below which show what I mean.
If anyone else here uses ThinkOrSwim and knows what I'm talking about I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for your time.
