App is total junk. Last several days it's taken several minutes to open. When you select positions to trade, it brings up different ones altogether. Be very careful. If you are day trading, I wouldn't touch this with a 10' pole. Customer service is of no help and doesn't care. App is still junk. Unreliable, and customer service unresponsive. There are better platforms out there.

So far, the trading is fast, but that is if the app opens. Currently, it keeps saying I have no internet, but I am at home with a full strength WiFi and all my other apps recognize the signal. Its really frustrating when you can't trade and want to on your phone. I even restarted the app multiple times, even Un-installed and re-installed. Still no luck. Come on First Trade.

Very easy to mistype an option order. First of all you can't add an option contract to watchlist, so you have to go through 3 or 4 clicks to arrive at the specific contract each time (and sometimes mis-click) . And then it's really easy to forget to switch to sell side. In this app "BUY" IS SELECTED BY DEFAULT for option orders!!! I have used other trading apps, and they make the buy/sell as the button you have to click to enter an order. It's much better to NOT have a default for buy/sell.

Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to inform you that the ability to set the default transaction type on your device is available on the current store version! Simply head to the Account tab and tap on Trading Preferences item---you'll be able to configure the default you would like for transaction type and order type on that screen. Enjoy!
