Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "Service is great, platform is bad. I have multiple accounts and cant be logged on to both at the same time, orders don't always execute and must be placed again, has cost me money to re-enter trade at a new price. Margin call error pop ups when I am not in a margin call. I think it is a clumsy interface, I can envision several improvements. Think or swim platform training suggests 6-8 weeks of training just to get use to it, I trade under pressure and don't want something complicated, I'm looking for something better."

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "We are closing our accounts at TDA because for more than the past year TDA is not accurate in the gains and losses our accounts have. We are told it is because we have 'penny stocks' and they are inaccurate and we are aware of our software problem and working on it. Well after more than 18 months my accounts position pages are still not accurate on a daily basis. How can I manage my investments? For example, in the past 4 weeks alone-using their daily reported gains and losses and account balances we show a $7000 gain that they don't give us credit for. That makes an error rate of 12.5%. We were told by the presidents office advisor of TDA that we should check the quotes for each stock (we have 70+ stocks) to verify what it actually did. Bullarchy! Moving to Fidelity were my IRA's are and there it is always accurate even with penny stocks."

They said it could be done if I called their 800 number and did it through a broker. I've exchanged funds online several times with Fidelity and never had a problem.

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "Everything has been fine as long as Ameritrade came out ahead. But now with my small account finally exceeding what I've paid in fees and market losses by picking stocks that are doing well, I'm being penalized. Their Risk Management always finds a way to take when my stocks go down and take again when they go up. Day before yesterday I actually made a decent amount but was credited 55 cents. Oddly enough, when I lost 50 the day before, they took 50, and the day after I made 1.50 and I received 1.50. But I will never accept how I am not being given what I'm finally making above what I put in plus fees. They always find the right words to explain why they can't give me my little but potentially percentagewise large gains."

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "After being an Ameritrade customer for more than 10 years, I was informed that I was no longer acceptable as a client (due to being a resident of either Switzerland or Dubai, apparently). I got 2 different email responses saying that 1) my account would be liquidated and 2) no, my account would not be liquidated but I could sell only, not buy. I asked for clarification and was told both answers were correct (??). I sent emails saying I was transferring my account and not to sell my positions. As a result of TD Ameritrade reneging on the trade, a USD 4600 loss was incurred on Friday, which is now up to USD 26,000 (growing daily). I am blocked out of the account and TD Ameritrade ignores me and the account. I have called long distance probably 20 times and get nothing but evasions."

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "I was on the phone with TD Waterhouse this morning regarding errors in the way their site was being displayed on my monitor. The technical advisor led me through a series of steps to ensure an error free user experience. The steps involved me lowering the security settings on my computer to the lowest setting possible, including adjusting the privacy setting to "Accept All Cookies From All Web Sites". When I asked why these settings needed to be at their lowest, I was told, "lowering these settings are a standard procedure for us and have often solved any problems that our customers may have been experiencing." Yeah, right, no shiat sherlock! TD Waterhouse was actually asking me to reduce the security of my computer to it's absolute most unsecure level to make it easier to use their utmost secured site. I was transferred to the supervisor who supported reducing the security of my computer to it's lowest setting. I wasn't at all surprised to hear Donna (supervisor of Electronic Business Services) admit that she has never received formal education (nor does she have any knowledge) on general website and internet technology. After shaking my head in disbelief and expressing disapproval for her advise, she said it was only a suggestion and if I had any concerns that I should only reduce the security settings before logging onto their site and then change them back when I'm finished visiting. Good God, man! Are they for real? Reduce the security settings of my computer before logging into my bank/trading account? Based on their stupidity in this one issue alone I do not recommend TD Waterhouse to anyone. I'm looking for a better provider. TD you suck! Sincerely, MT"

It shows not filled. There is a possibility it was filled at TD Waterhouse at this point they do not know. (this is not a joke !!!) If I place another sell order I might be short without knowing it! Talked to Ms Fedisha (21 02 2012 3:01 PM Montreal time) at TD Waterhouse she assured me someone will staigthen this out & call back. None called back. I called again noone knows what happened & the status of my order. Probably easier to deal with a bank in Greece than with TD Waterhouse! They make very dangerous mistakes. Stay away from them!"

Days crept by and after 5 days they have finally allowed the money to be transferred to my bank account (after their customary 2-3 day waiting period of course). However - if you don't have this kind of problem, their extremely comprehensive and great trading system makes them a huge plus. 7.5/10"

They won't let me trade, they won't send the money back, and they insist I provide proof from my bank that the funds were transferred. Is this a joke or what. They clearly have the funds in their account. They just don't want me to use them. And, you can't talk to anyone in person. The customer service number simply states that there are "difficulties" and to call back later. I'm pretty freaked out!"

If you have lots of options in your account, it is very difficult to trade spreads without calling in. If you have stocks assigned due to short positions, they will liquidate your account extremely fast, at worst possible price. Instead of simple execution to bring your account to positive least damaging way, they sell low, and buy high. I have a feeling they collaborate with 3rd party."

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "Option traders be careful TD Ameritrade removed my level-3 option approval and raised my margin calls to over ten million dollars, in an attempt to wipe me out. This is because I have been complaining and bitching about there accounting balance errors in my five accounts for a while. I can't get my accounts ot balance most of the time. I talked to there margin dept. and a guy said they were having software problems. Now they are getting revenge because I told them last Thursday I was transferring my accounts out on September 1, 2011 they suddenly margin called me for over ten millions dollars on Friday September 2, 2011. I told them on Thrusday I was transferring out my accounts and reporting TD Ameritrade to the SEC and FINRA. They have my life savings tied up. They don't give a dam about what they are doing to me. The corruption continues at TD Ameritrade until someone does something about it."

Put in order at last trade price & it lied there for 5-10 minutes with no execution or change in price according to tape; then changed to lower last traded price & it was unexecuted for 15-20 minutes w/no change in traded price reported. Finally got half the order executed at lower price. Changed remaining half of order to market & TD Ameritrade's software did not work & failed to take order by mobile site. Finally used full site which took order which cost me $$. Do not use TD Ameritrade - they would not make good the losses or apologize for the software failure on my trade, & delayed execution. Do not talk to their Resource Desk - it is a "complaint desk." & will only give you double talk, refusing to address the problem. Will only give you other "managers" to talk to & numbers for SIPC & NASDAQ."

They cite some error on behalf of the dealer, and I am left with no recourse except to warn others -- apparently you can't count your chickens once they've hatched with TD Ameritrade"

I sold 200 shares of a stock and wanted to have the proceeds sent by wire transfer to my bank. They said it would take 3 business days. I called on the 4th business day and they had not only, not sent the money, they had put a stop on it. I needed part of the money to pay bill. I have done business with Schwab and have never had a problem. They wire transfer immediately, no waiting for 3 business days and then cancelling the request. I talked to the supervisor and really let him have it, and asked him what he was going to do about it. His answer was that he would send it first thing tomorrow morning, that is the 5th business day. EEK!"

However as I started placing trades I soon found out that they in most instances completely failed to process my orders when they were profitable. Orders were canceled without my permission, never placed, or were partially filled. When provided with an opportunity to screw you they happily do exactly as there supposed to selling your stock and taking a substantial amount of profit with market orders. Even transferring money out of the account is next to impossible as they canceled my requests without trades pending or pending settlements several times without providing a simple explanation. This isn't trading, it's robery. Stay clear of this broker there selective scammers."

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "I never had a problem with TD Ameritrade, I was going by a brother's feelings and bad experiences, except for two things: I thought I was getting the going rate for money markets and calculated my projected interest as such, when I checked over six months later I had earned close to zero interest and I found an article covering this issue that brokers pocket the profits, that specifically small accounts don't fare so well with the rate tier system, so I did what the article said I contacted the broker and I had to ask for the rate I should have had from the start, but I was still upset that my money languished there for little or nothing, and I told them later that they should be giving me the fees they charged me, to cover that issue and I haven't heard from them. If they do respond belatedly, and they right a wrong, I will surely make a corrective statement here. These companies should make sure #1 priority that customers are treated fairly no matter what size their account is. The only other issue, I'm not sure about this one, is that they were charging me mandatory hefty fees for reverse splits and my feeling is that those companies should take care of their own business and not bilk investors. I am very happy with E-trade so far, they have been fair and honest and their website is plush with tools and information."

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "TD Ameritrade sucks big! I opened an account back in December '09 and tried their ThinkorSwim and Investools. For beginning traders I have to say...Do Not Use...Their program is hard to navigate, their customer service is horrible, plus they don't want to refund my money! I told them specifically I am just a beginner and don't know anything about trading, crawl before walking, you know? Was told that their seminar would help me out but of course, all they did was spend 7-8 hours on a sales pitch for options which I have no clue about. When I signed up to get Investools, I was told by their guy that I would receive CDs in about a week. Again, nothing. When I contacted TD Ameritrade, was told they don't send out CDs. So I pretty much passed the 30-day return grace period. My fault? Don't think so. Have been contacting them for about three months now with nothing but apologies, but no refund. What a crock!"

Click to go to the top of the page TD Ameritrade - "I have over 20 years investment experience. Over the last 3 years I have traded with TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab, E-trade and Scotttrade. Also, I have extensive experience with brokerage firms such as Morgan Stanley, UBS Painewebber, Solomon Smith and Barney, Brown Brothers Harriman and Citigold. I do not believe there are regulations in place to protect retirement plans, IRA's or general savings. I believe "Wall Street" (a term used to describe the financial sector here and around the world) has become incredibly dishonest and unlawful. The SEC and FINRA are failing as such should be replaced by new agencies. My experience with online trading is the tail of two cities I have had great success with E-trade. Scotttrade also appears to perform well, however I do need more time to properly evaluate this company. As far as TD Ameritrade, you have no control over your account; I have had good trades backed out and I have not been able to execute certain trades. Their front page (Balance and Positions) is the weirdest thing I have ever used. They have a special rule that stymies the trader's ability to navigate their investment and they refuse to fix their problems. E-trade gives you your gain and losses immediately. TD Ameritrade porn's this data to a third party who TD disclaims they are not responsible for their data you receive. They are making incredible profits and myself and others feel their staff is ether demoralized or in denial. Schwab is worse than TD Ameritrade. This is my experience, I am not endorsing any trading house, however, please be careful with all online brokers."
