When an individual decides that they would like to open and manage a brokerage account, he or she must select and download onto their computer or device a trading platform, such as ZeroPro by TradeZero. This trading platform is the software or program which allows a trader to execute the buying and selling of securities. Most brokers provide a trading platform along with their services or a trader may also be able to find a separate platform that they can link to their brokerage account. Think of a trading platform as a trader’s cockpit when navigating the market where they have all the tools they will need to effectively manage their account. These tools include things such as charts, ticker info, real time quotes, news feeds, analysis, chats and more.
With so many different trading platforms out there, it could be difficult for a trader to know which one may be best for him or her. TradeZero is currently offering a free trial of their ZeroPro software. They also offer a free version of their trading platform, ZeroFree, as well as a browser version ZeroWeb and a mobile version called ZeroMobile. Not all trading platforms provide a free trial, or a free version of their software. This leaves it up to the trader to know what they are looking for when searching, paying for and downloading a trading platform. The purpose of this article is to outline the key points to look for when selecting a trading platform.
Key Points to look for:
- Features included in the trading platform

- Trading platform fees
- Does the trading platform cater to a trader’s needs?
Some trading platforms use high contrast colors in the charts which causes eye strain for some traders. Other brokers may not allow the customization of the screen to a trader’s liking. Trying several different platforms to find one that jives with the individual trader’s wants and needs is the best way to find a platform worth settling into. After all, a trader needs to be comfortable and confident when coming to the market and assured that their trading platform will allow them to execute trades in a stress-free manner.
