    Over the past 20 years I tried and tested numerous trading platforms and I have to say that the DAS Trader Pro is by far the best platform. What I like most about this platform beside being simple to use, is the ease of zooming in and out of my charts along with the drawing tools that help me find the best support and resistance levels. I share my screen all day teaching thousands of students how to day trade and swing trade using this platform at www.thestockwhisperer.com Other great features include the top 20 list, the ECN book and the multiple time and sales windows. I highly recommend this product.

    What I like most about Das is the charts. The charts are clean and I can set them up to easily read the price. The configurations are clear and easy to see. Das has a good speed of execution with hotkeys. This is important because I use hotkeys to take all my trades.
