Notes
  • At first glance Ameritrade/TOS is a robust trading and analytics platform that comes included with having an account at Ameritrade.

    But, I will cut right to the chase and say that if you're an experienced trader who relies on filters or such tools to suss out potential trading opportunities then Ameritrade is absolutely not the platform to use.

    Even worse, although they advertise and offer a relatively robust menu of such tools, what you eventually find out, after dedicating countless hours to learning their language, is that it doesn't even matter because they don't have the bandwidth to provide real time updates on the most basic of indicators..like Average Volume and whatnot.

    So, net net, you'll have a really impressive looking setup but when the bell opens in the AM you'll see glaring red codes like NAN(Not Available Now) and the ever present 'loading'..which won't resolve until at least 2 hours into the trading day

    Can I accurately relay how frustrating this is?

    No, I can't!

    So, after spending my valuable time chasing down the person in charge of such functionality at the home office he basically told me that 'We're aware of this issue but unfortunately our bandwidth is prioritized toward our algo, black-box and flash trading clients'

    And there you have it..

    Pass!!
