Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Active Trader Pro
Platform works great--new releases come out quite often with updates--even if just a few. I have also noticed my own requests for additions/changes met. (Of course lots of people could have had similar ideas)

Rated 5 out of 5 by mcoli Fidelity enters the modern age
I am a trader of stocks long and short. I hold a stock for any where from a day to several months. Active Trader Pro gives me up to the second last, bid and ask information to enter my orders at precise points. It gives me easy to use charts and information on resistance/support for any stock. It is easy to watch many stocks at a time and bring up all information on a stock with a single click. I can see info on another stock with just one other click. Active Trader Pro is the best and most intuitive trading platform I have used. When I first started trading back in 1996 I lost a sizable inheritance just trading with a broker that turned out to be dishonest. With Fidelity I get honesty, integrity and convenience. My trading skills have increased since using Active Trader Pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marinermoe I Like It
It is fast easy and versatile. The ability to switch from stock to stock, to options or have them all at the same time make it very quick to see what you want. I am just learning some of the option tools but have used them enough to see the help in evaluation and trading advantage. The presentation is easily customizable with terrific contrast and readability. I enjoy using at home, work and on the go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by longterm90 Replaces various programs I was using
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.

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

I like ATP. The quotes are really great, and I have a chart displayed at the same time so I can go beyond just seeing what the stock is doing but am able to see the big picture, I'm a scholar of Japanese Candlestick Charting. I go in at the opening and review Fidelity % gainers and prospects I've picked up from other websites, maybe 7 or 8 stocks. It's comprehensive, everything you want to know is there for you.

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 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.

The reliability of ATP has improved, but still locks up about once/day and your help desk is near the limit of what they can do.

Active Trader Pro is much less than I expected; I tried to get charts on 5 stocks and i kept getting the same response; "No data for this stock". Really, how many stocks are available for charting purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LJepu Using for 5 years now
I have been using ATP for more than 5 years and love it. Fidelity continues to make the changes to improve this product. Best of all fidelity has gotten me the best pricing on option trades.
Only issue I have is they have yet to implement my request to set the reinvestment based on dividend yield but this is not an ATP issue.
The options pricing, trade armor, and option analytics are extremely convenient to use and easily link to very good research of equities.

One hour of back and forth and still cannot access AT Pro from my new Mac ( at home). The directions are terrible on your sight and nothing seems to work. The screen is cluttered w/ garbage info. This should be straight fwd-------Do you want to access ATP? Yes! Do you have a Mac or Windows? MAC ! Then, go here......

Rated 1 out of 5 by kintexas Have a Mac? ATP.com does not work properly.
I am constantly signing in to ATP.com from two different areas. I no longer receive pop-up alerts on ATP.com and by the time they come thru on my phone, it's a mute point. It logs me off a dozen times a day. I can no longer toggle back and forth from ATP.com stock quotes to ANYTHING listed under the 'Account' tab. Fidelity......DO SOMETHING TO FIX THIS. My computer is only one month old, so I know it's not the Mac. You have techs out the whazoo.....what on earth do they do all day long that they can't fix this monumental issue? I don't like having to work around problems that shouldn't be there to begin with. It's not a Microsoft world....Macs are a thousand times better than anything to do with Microsoft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BB2020 Won't Work On Mac
Despite Fidelity's claims that this will work on Mac platform, it does not. After installing Silverlight and restarting browser and opening ATP, all you get is a white screen. This issue has been well documented by others for many months (going back to 2015) and yet Fidelity has not fixed the problem and continues to claim Mac compatibility.
