TradeStation is a software-based online brokerage used primarily by active traders. Its platform provides analysis, charting and backtesting capabilities.[1] It is a subsidiary of TradeStation Group Inc., which was acquired by Japanese financial services giant Monex in June 2011.[2][3]

TradeStation enables trading in stocks, options, futures and forex.[4] It allows customers to download the TradeStation software and then design their own trading system, backtesting it against a historical database to see how well it works. Options traders can add a program called OptionStation, which allows them to create their own options strategies.
