Pros

Easy to use, and cheap fees.

Cons

There are too many hidden panels.
E

Erick L ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

Itโ€™s easy to use and pretty self explanatory. They made things easier with Touch ID to log in.

Cons

They charge fees. Since I also use Robinhood, I prefer free-to-complete transactions.

Tim B ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

Pretty simple to use. I'm not particularly one to dive in to a great deal of detail so this works for me.

Cons

I'd like the fees to be lower.
R

Rimi A ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

The excellently availability and follow ups by the broker weโ€™d spoken to, making us feel we had a reliable point of contact with Ameritrade.

Cons

Some of the website clarity could be improved. More straightforward language and explanation could also be useful.

Erika M ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

I stayed with Ameritrade not only for the lack of extra "penny stock" fees but also because of their excellent customer service. I also like the customization of my positions page, all the alerts I can set, all the information provided on stocks, and the different platforms they have (web, mobile, ThinkorSwim).

Cons

News on individual stocks can be delayed and I have to search elsewhere.

Michael S ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

TDA offers a free and incredibly feature-rich trading platform, Think or Swim (TOS). Runs flawlessly on Windows and Mac, as well as mobile. As well as the platform, TDA offers on-demand chat for trading and tech support during trading hours. I've used other platforms from major brokers but this is easily the best.

Cons

Their standard web portal is oddly difficult to navigate. It could be a cleaner and more intuitive layout.
S

Steve E ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

Their sponsorship of the College World Series baseball tournament.

Cons

All the mailings that come on a quarterly basis, especially the ones for voting.
T

Thomas F ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

The ability to conduct research on different equities and bonds. Easy to make transfers and a solid user interface.

Cons

Commissions can be relatively high. Customer service isnโ€™t always speedy.
B

Bryan L ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

The platform provides a plethora of functionality, not all of which I am familiar with.

Cons

User interface. The stock chart is very small and hard to navigate.
D

David G ๐Ÿ‘

Pros

Local office is somewhat close. They have a lot of choices to invest.

Cons

More local offices. More account assistance. More education.
