FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is tastytrade?

tastytrade is a financial network, but not in the traditional sense. We use probabilities and strategy when we evaluate the financial markets because we feel, well, those things are just more important than the opinions of talking heads. We have 8 hours of live content every day from 7AM CST to 3PM CST. From our groundbreaking 'Market Measure' research and game changing studies, to our revolutionary trading platform,, and #1 grossing financial mobile app, Bob The Trader, we’re here to make sure you learn something that makes you a better trader every day. In addition to the live show, we also have thousands of hours of videos on demand! The best part? IT’S FREE! All you need to do is register your email address!

Are you a brokerage firm?

tastytrade is not a brokerage firm. Our preferred broker is TD Ameritrade, and the platforms that all of our talent uses are thinkorswim and dough platforms, as Tom Sosnoff, our CEO and host of "tastytrade Live!", created them. If you use these platforms, they have their own special support team that can help you navigate. TD Ameritrade account holders can also utilize the dough platform to trade.

Who are you people?

The fact is that we are old floor traders who created thinkorswim back in 1999 and built it into one of the most successful online brokers in the world. The more fun story is that we were born on a sacred mountain and glided into our present positions on rainbows and accompanied by eagles. Our birthdays are celebrated the world over.
