What makes TD Ameritrade stand out from other mutual and income fund brokers? For me, it was gaining access to tools that could help me become a better investor while also having access to a sizeable no-fee fund list. With TD Ameritrade, I can get free stock market analysis from S&P Capital IQ, Market Edge and Credit Suisse in addition to real-time streaming quotes. The myTrade social community has also been a great resource for keeping up to date on the latest investment trends.
Being a new investor, I started out with the broker's Web platform, although I might soon step up to the more advanced Trade Architect platform. The Web Platform though is accessible and easy to use. Thanks to TD Ameritrade, I'm making regular investments and I feel comfortable with my long-term plan.
