Desktop Platform Quick Guide

We’re glad that you’ve joined tastytrade, and we know that you want to get trading, but the last thing we want you to feel like is a chicken running around with its head cut off. If you're someone that doesn't like to read instruction manuals and just likes to jump into things then this is the place for you! That’s why we’ve broken up the top five functions of the desktop platform in bite-sized videos (1-2 minutes long). Also if you like to take things nice and slow, then take a gander at our desktop platform overview by clicking here. Additionally, if you looking for the web-browser platform quick guide instead?
