TD Ameritrade Review: What We Love About It

TD Ameritrade is one of the most popular online trading platforms globally, the desktop trading software thinkorswim is also SlashTraders' favourite trading tool.

Charles Schwab just completed the merger with TD Ameritrade in October 2020 to unite around $6 tillion in assets and 28 million brokerage accounts. While the complete integration of the two companies may take 18 to 36 months. TD Ameritrade would continue to operate as a stand-alone company before the integration is complete.

We share our thoughts in this article on our experiences in using TD Ameritrade and thinkorswim, so you are more informed when choosing an online trading tool.

Powerful Trading Analysis Tools

TD Ameritrade has a full-featured online trading user interface, that allows users to invest in a diverse range of products.
