I have used robinhood in past, but it didn't find poerful charting feature in robinhood hence it very difficult to analyze the stocks. but Thinkorswim has great charting platform which help user to analyze the stocks in easy way to make the trading decisions. Also, It provide OCI Bracket order feature which was missing in robinhood. hence I had to swich from robinhood to Thinkorswim.

Thinkorswim is best suited for day trading, Swing Trading and Long term investment. Its very easy to generate chart. Various type of analysis can be perfoemd using this product. On top of that, It provide easy way to setup alerts. It provide capability for place various type of order like OCI order, Bracket order which is missing in other platforms. This is very less suited for creating Trading Journal as this doesn't provide those features.

Evaluating thinkorswim and Competitors

Yes - robinhood was replaced by Thinkorswim product. Thinkerswim provide great Charting , Alerting and Order placement feature which are missing in robinhood. It is very east to creat various charts using Thinkorswim and take trading decisions. These feature are missing in robinhood. Also, We can do programing and create our own indicators OR we can modify the indicators in ThinkerSwim.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Product Feature is most important to decide which product to use. The product should be feature rich and it should provide all the basic feature required for the trading. ThinkSwim has the custom Indicator feature which is very powerful for advanced trading and we can use these indicators to generating various analysis and take the decisions. Also, can create various alerts in easy way.
If I had to do it again, I would like to go through all the features first and perform a small POC to check if product is performing basis operations which are required for the business. Also, Comparing various products in market is very important. Product should have both Mobile and Desktop versions available and it should provide easy to use User Interface.
