High quality broker
Pros: 60 days free when you start trading, flat rate of $10 can be very useful, website has a user-friendly layout, comes with Thinkorswim which is a fantastic trading platform.

Cons: Not a very good broker for shorting OTC stocks, executions are a little slow sometimes.

great for beginners
What I like the most is that they give you 60 days of free trades if you open an account and fund it with at least 2000$. That is a huge advantage if you're just starting out, because you can test diferent kind of trades and strategies and get the dumb mistakes out of the way without paying 20$ for every round trip.

Another thing is their customer service. I don't have any other broker right now, so I can't compare, but TD staff always answers very quick to my questions and as a noob I have a lot of them.

Executions...well I mostly trade OTC's and these sometimes take some time to fill, if you want to buy into strenght, for example. Again, I can't compare, but I see people complain about other brokers aswell so I don't know if they are slow or just like every other brokerage. With Nasdaqs I have no problems, they fill imediatly.

Also, TOS is a pretty nice platform, altough kindda goofy when it comes to subpenny's. They don't show the corect price on the chart, and it is dificult to know at what price is S, R and what % will your stop be at, so If you're looking to trade subpannys I would suggest other charting tool.

Hope this helps!

One of the best brokerage around!
I have used multiple brokers and none have compared to TDAmeritrade. The execution times are very fast when placing a trade. Also the trade pricing is good because the do not charge extra for a lot of shares which is nice for day trading. And the thinkorswim platform is free if you open a account with them which is also a plus. They also have good customer service.

They have a referral program going on right now. If you email me at ross_linton@comcast.net and ask for the link then when signing up we each get $50!

Best trading tools
TD Ameritrade has some of the best tools out there for trading. I really love ThinkOrSwim as my main trading software. Also the mobile apps work very good, both the iPhone and Android version.

Customer service is very good, only the commissions are too high.

Great LIKE
TD Ameritrade has a lot of great platforms mobile web based and the thinkorswim platform. IT is great and a good broker to use commissions are a little pricey but you can get two free months of trading if you open your account with a certain amount which is excellent.

On of the best
One of the best out there, one of the complete platforms. It is complicated to use for beginners. they also allow u to customize what you see and the charts are amazing.

New Web Site is horrible
They implemented a new website in the begining of November that is horrible

My main complaints:

1. Page loads are dreadfully slow

2. They have no way to get a quick quote. They have a snap ticket window that you can get to pop up but for some reason the simple quote is even slower than the page loads.

3. They have a my dock window that among other things allows you to create a watch list with price info updated automatically. Problem is the prices displayed are often wrong (by 5 to 10 percent). Also it will only give price, no volume, no bid/ask. Pretty useless.

In general the website is clunky, slow, just the worst I have seen

Funny thing is the old web site was fine.

I have been a TD Ameritrade account holder since 2003, and I will be closing my account in January

Decent
Good brokerage, as said before - not good for pennies or day trading.

I don't like the charts. Some stocks I couldn't borrow very often.

The platform's interface is somewhat..."too much".

Just too much unnecessary stuff, that makes everything harder and worse.

As an example, SureTrader has a much more simpler platform, which seems more appealing to me.

Good for long term investing.

Good brokerage for longer term traders
TDAmeritrade is a great brokerage for what it's designed for - the buy and hold retail investor. They're tools are easy to use, the site is intuitive, and their customer service is good. If you are into day trading then there are probably better options out there for you.
