Hello everyone,

I have been trading options on and off for about 5 years, and would like to try my luck with futures. I have a few questions and concerns about trading setups and order types.

Question 1: I noticed most serious retail future traders don't use TDA's thinkorswim platform. Why? Is the platform inadequate, or are they simply using platforms that are compatible with other brokers who offer lower trading fees?

Question 2: what is the general consensus about using limit and stop orders? Does this leave you vulnerable to HFTs?
