Special Offer From TD Ameritrade!

TD Ameritrade has a pretty cool referral program that offers $200 cash or 20 commission-free trades and a special offer to the friend being referred. I couldn't find what that offer to the friend is exactly, but once I get my first referral and hopefully that friend can tell me what he/she received, I'll let you know! I think it's only fair that I give you guys a review of TD Ameritrade instead of just referring you guys so here you go!

Pros:

Platform - TD Ameritrade offers ThinkOrSwim which is by far my favorite platform to trade on. The charts are very customizable and have lots of tools. Very easy to navigate. Offers Level 2, scans, live chat support, OTC trading, Extended hours trading, clean layout.

Mobile App - They have a really nice mobile app where you can trade and look at charts. The app is very impressive and offers you to look at different time ranges on charts and offers candle charts which a lot of other apps don't offer. This is the only app that I found that offers Level 2 quotes which is VERY useful. This is the only app that gives me enough confidence to make trades on the go. I also use this app to create alerts when stocks reach a certain price; very useful.

Customer Support: I believe they have 24 hour support and they are very helpful. From the couple times I've had to call them, I can tell you they have great service. I don't think I had to be put on hold for very long either. I'd give them 5 stars for Customer Support.

Trade Executions - I've had great executions on longs even with OTCs. I haven't traded short yet, I know you can with TD Ameritrade but I'm not sure how many stocks they have easy-to-borrow

Cons:

The only con I can think of is that, just like any other American Broker, The PDT Rule is enforced if you have under $25,000 in your account. Which may not be such a bad thing because it prevents you from over-trading.



If you guys have any questions, please feel free to message me. If you'd like me to send you a referral link, I'll need you to Message me your first and last name as well as your email. And here's a picture below showing the referral page if you need to see it for any reason.
