I'm just getting involved in trading. I've "invested" for a long time, but I'd like to get more involved in swings or shorter term trades. I've been trying out ThinkorSwim since I have my account with TD, but I'm finding it not the most user friendly. I'm sure a lot is just lack of experience with it, but I'm wondering if anyone can suggest an ideal platform or if ToS is fine. One thing I notice in ThinkorSwim is the charts are sometimes squished, no matter how I adjust the size, it just doesn't give me nice looking candle sticks. Also, the level 2 display is somewhat confusing, I've seen some screenshots of others (etrade) and it seemed much easier to understand.
