Optionshouse offers lots of trading tools: Risk Viewer, Stock Screener, The Trade Generator, streaming charts and news, volatility charts, Spread Investigators and much more. All of them are customizable, fast and easy to use.

Volatility Charts - track changes in both implied and historic volatility to help you analyze volatility trends. This is huge for options traders as these charts help tell you if the option has a high or low premium attached to it. We love using this tool to find good options candidates to sell naked puts and calls on and keep the cash. The current, 52 week high and 52 week low of each volatility measurement is also given which is really helpful data to have.

Standard pricing of $4.95 will be charged if a user sells shares of an individual stock or ETF within motif, or buys/sells individual stock or ETF without a motif. Investing in a motif means that client actually owns the underlying shares of each security in the motif, and can adjust and trade them at will - this is a huge advantage over mutual funds. User can rebalance the number of shares within motif at any time, and it could be done for the same price of $9.95.

Another advantage motifs have over mutual funds is that there is no cost of owning them. With mutual funds investors are paying management and expense ratio fees EVERY year! Over the years this adds up to an enormous amount. With motifs investors don't pay any fees.

MB Trading's trading software, called MBT Navigator, is a stand-alone (non-browser based) application - clients have to download and install it. Because it's not browser-based, it offers many advanced features usually found only in a professional trading software. Barron's has consistently ranked the firm near the top for trading technology, though not as high as Thinkorswim (Thinkorswim Platform Review).

MB Trading provides some of the best charting among online brokers. Their intelligent order-routing is the standard for "smart" order routes, and it is available for CME, NYMEX, CBOT and COMEX.
