Vanguard mutual funds and ETFs, Fidelity ETFs, no transaction fee (NTF) funds,
and no-load funds. Their great screener tools makes it extremely easy for even a novice investor
to find stocks and funds they want to invest in.
TD Ameritrade customers have access to online trader community, where they could interact with each other,
share their trading strategies and tips.
TD Ameritrade also offers two trading platforms called Thinkorswim
and Trade Architect. Thinkorswim is for professional traders, while Trade Architect
some users (usually beginners) might find more intuitive.
Thinkorswim comes with a technical analysis package and a highly developed charting. If you are an option trader, and if you
are particularly into the Greeks, you will be able to keep an eye on your individual positions and on your portfolio at the same time from the
gamma, delta, vega and theta perspective. By all accounts, TD Ameritrade offers one the best trading platforms on the market right now. And, amazingly,
it is absolutely free.
TD Ameritrade endeavors to be competitive and has similar commission rates to the other top brokerage houses.
The pricing is also negotiable for active investors and traders.
