Tom Sosnoff and I have had a working relationship for over twenty years. On the surface, he and I couldn’t be more different. As product-makers, however, we share a tremendous amount in common.
For those of you not acquainted with Tom, he is the widely-heralded options trader who created the thinkorswim platform (selling it to Ameritrade for over $600 million) who then went on to create tastytrade (where I broadcast a show daily), and, most recently, a new brokerage focused on options trading called tastyworks (yeah, Tom likes the name “tasty” as well as lowercase nouns).
I bring this up because I’d like to encourage those of you who are options traders to give their brokerage a try. Tom has always been on the cutting edge, and he absolutely thinks specifically like an options trader. I’ve gathered up a few independent reviews of his platform for your perusal:
- BrokerChooser review (4.5/5 stars)
- WarriorTrader review (4.5/5 stars)
- TradeOptionsWithMe (9.5/10 stars)
If you trade options, again, I encourage you to sign up for an account and give it a try (the CEO of the place, Kristi Ross, was kind enough to give me a referral code, so I’ll make a few bucks for those who join, but even without this, I’d strongly recommend you check it out). If you want to know more, here’s a really complete video from an independent trader who reviewed it.
