Rated 5 out of 5 by Ben Great Platform
All the 1 star reviews about perfomance issues please check you system specs before bashing the platform. If your having lag issues on volume spike like market open or close make sure you have the RECOMMEND processor and RAM. The 10.X version requires significantly more power than the older 9.6 version.
That being said. The new version is great. Finally have options summary, trading from chart. Adjust gain/loss for wash sales. Back testing, albeit only on covered calls but its improving.
Charts are good, though the indicators take a lot of screen space which can be a slight annoyance.
Ability to customize layout and have 20 windows.
I love this platform and while it does require a faster computer (but what doesn't these days) it is far better than 9.6

Rated 5 out of 5 by tommyboy46 It's GREAT !!
I use ATP every day. I monitor the market and my stock portfolio in relation to the markets. I use many of the features the site has to offer, like, charting, research, and trading. In the charting function, I play around with length of time, moving average indicators, bollinger bands, and RSI, just to name a few. There is still so much more for me to learn about the site and I am looking forward to further exploring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hblack3 Excellent product
I have used Bloomberg since inception (I actually used Quotron before that but don't tell anybody). I moved to an Investment Adviser role in the last 6 mos and do not have access to BB anymore. I didn't think I could live without it until I tried Active Trader Pro. Your product is excellent. I speak w/ you desk about 2X a week with suggestions. For me the areas to improve which would be most helpful to me would be in portfolio analytics ex. ability to do monthly "marks" and return analysis based on those, incorporating dividends into returns, basic asset allocation pie charts etc.. Otherwise you are on a super track and I especially like the responsiveness of your help desk. The men and woman there are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spider Tom Outstanding trading platform
I have been using ATP since it was first introduced and every upgrade has far exceeded my expectations. The present version allows easy trading of some complicated trades and options.
I love Trade Armor!!!!!. Instead of having to enter two orders for OCO to protect your down side and still allowing some upside.
Technical response has always been excellent.
Thanks Fidelity ATP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArizonaAl Easy access to tools
ATP provides easy access to the outstanding array of Fidelity analysis tools, external reports, and current market activity. This is in addition to comprehensive tools for tracking individual and aggregate account information and performance. The capabilities for trading and the performance of the trading system are excellent. In spite of all its capabilities, it is generally easy to navigate as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bubba Excellent for day/swing trading
product has great response times, you create your own screens and time frames. Order entry is quick. Streaming market data is great and Time and Sales is good. The product is top of the line for everyday traders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ken430TX Great Improvement to Prior Versions
I use ATP daily. As a retiree, I generate income to supplement our retirement, so I am an active trader. I like the ease and speed of trading and the simplicity of the screens. I also like the Trade Armor product which gives me insight into various positions and what levels I should expect to trade at.
I also like the ability to customize screens. I set my screen up to reflect my favorite stocks, and positions. It works flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JBinNYC Impressive, easy to use platform
I requested access to ATP and Fidelity have it to me without hesitation. I have been thoroughly enjoying using it since I downloaded. Its very easy to start using and I love how I can customize the screen to be the way I want. I look forward to using ATP for all future trading.

There are better options out there. If you do not need it do not start it.
Lots of conflicts when you download to your desktop. Technical support well intentioned but cannot resolve issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JCPDX Active Trader Pro does not work on Apple
Silverlight ruins the wonderful functionality of Active Trader Pro. Fidelity makes more than enough money to rewrite the application in HTML 5.
Active Trader Pro on Safari, Chrome, Firefox locks up ...Hate it!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by K Active Trader Pro does not work on MAC
This program does not work on Apple MAC. Fidelity refuses to update its software for MAC, which seems odd since wealthier customers prefer the MAC IOS.

Before I used ATP I was paying for multiple programs to do what ATP has included. My trading needs have all been met with one program. Outstanding program for the active trader.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rschletty Silverlight issues – Mac Mavericks
I am able to run the online version of ATP in Firefox and Safari on my MacBook Pro running Mavericks. Silverlight no longer loads in Mac version of Google Chrome (vs. 40). To get Silverlight to load for ATP in Safari, you have to add scs.fidelity.com to Preferences: Security: Internet Plug-ins: Silverlight and then set it to "Run in Unsafe Mode." Before I did this, I was getting a white screen as Safari tried to load ATP. Fidelity needs to rebuild Active Trader Pro with HTML 5. Silverlight is on its way out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bill Managing quote lists
I have had this problem since ATP new version was released. I have stopped phoning and explaining after multiple calls over multiple months.
When I add a symbol to a list that starts with 47 symbols and hit "apply" it takes 4- 5 minutes for the new list, now with 48 symbols, to appear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ISLANDTIMETRADER Great platform, but......
I have to say ATP is fantastic, GREAT job Fidelity. However, if you truly are an "active trader" Fidelity's fee structure is a problem.
I wanted to stay, but was getting eaten alive by fee's. I transferred my account , but miss ATP.
Fidelity management ! Come up with a per share fee structure and you will attract more "active" traders !

Can not locate a direct login link to Active Trader Pro on the internet.. Seem to have to go thru the Trader Platform from fidelity.com.
This requires multiple frustrating steps.
Also how do you navigate to logout?
It was be very helpful if a overall navigation menu was provided to assist getting to the various features of Active Trader.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lesaz Latest Version (10.3) Problems
Windows 7 User. Three weeks of problems and crashes since being REQUIRED to upgrade to version 10.3. Have spent many hours trying to fix with tech support which has been very patient in searching for a solution but not always successful. Two crashes and two calls to tech support this a.m.. Working right now but am keeping fingers crossed...has minor glitch...when bring one window to top it doesn't preserve the relative order of other stacked windows. I'll live with it.
If I had written a review prior to ATP 10.3, based on several years of experience with prior versions, I would have rated it 4 or 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robls Good product, but needs to move off of Microsoft Silverlight.
I use Active Trader Pro everyday on my laptop. It is useful and a good product. The one shortcoming is it use of Microsoft Silverlight, which means it does not run on Android devices. It would be great if I could Chromecast from my tablet to my tv screen while running Active Trader Pro. Just wish they would update the software to be HTML 5 compliant, as Microsoft Silverlight is not widely adopted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by debange3000 Active Trader Pro is not ready, full of bugs
I'm very disappointed with the ATP Pro. Why?
End of day trading numbers are all wrong. Compare with Fidelity.com at the end of the day and you will see how horrible the numbers are. Now the ATP will say one needs to wait to get it refreshed next day. Well, may be it should take it's feed from wherever Fidelity.com is taking it's feed. I am thinking of moving assets away from Fidelity.
Fidelity can do better. This is horrifying

Rated 2 out of 5 by NK Unstable, slow, and cumbersom
I have been using this software for 4 years. I have never had a version that actually worked bug free without crashing at least once a day. I run this on its own computer and it doesn't compete for resources. I am on with tech support almost every day this week, and they still can't figure out why it crashes every day at exactly 3:40PM. Anyone out there have any ideas?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bob E. Memory Leak
Overall a good program. I'm running Windows Xp and I too have the memory leak that someone previously mentioned. When ATP starts windows task manager shows memory usage of about 250,000k. That slowly rises over time and in about an hour reaches 1,000,000k at which time the program creates a fault and has to closed and reopened. Which someone would fix this or let me know how to fix it.
