With the rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain, more opportunities for investment are becoming available. However, with this opportunity comes a lot of scams. This blog post provides insight on how to avoid being scammed when investing in cryptocurrency or any other type of project related to it such as ICOs or tokens
TD Ameritrade management had to know they were going to irritate and lose some Investools customers. The predicted customer loss did not justify maintaining two platforms, even if the Investools platform was a premium paid service.
Experts recommended members not to endorse that move by leaving TD Ameritrade as a matter of principle. You may compel the free market to work by locating the next closest analytical toolset. Many people are always upgrading their knowledge of relevant possibilities and keeping a tiny TD Ameritrade account. Put your big portfolio somewhere where consumers are valued.
It was announced in early 2017 that Investools will be phased out. Subscribers sought clarification from client services. Both firms orally agreed to shut down Investools but transfer the tools to Think or Swim. The only stipulation was that you needed a TD Ameritrade account to utilize the tools.
The Investools tools, however, were not moved. According to TD Ameritrade, the subscriber was informed that the tools were being relocated due to a misunderstanding, and that was the end of the conversation. The facts seems to have been fudged in order to create as many accounts as feasible. “The folks you talked with likely meant that we have certain instruments that you’ll find valuable in analysis,” they justified. It’s a foregone conclusion. Basic analytical tools are available from all online brokers to some degree, and they are an important component of the investment basis.
TD Ameritrade’s customer support representatives, on the other hand, were very pleasant and professional throughout the whole sign-up process. Even yet, the most of the disinformation had already spread.
Some were provided a licensed platform education coach to exhibit excellent customer service after the October 1 changeover. They expect that by doing so, the learning curve for finding equivalent tools on the new platform would be reduced. Except for a few features, most people’s aspirations were disappointed when they discovered that most of the tools were not available on TD Ameritrade or Think or Swim.
Many important characteristics are lacking, making analysis difficult. Even if it is just partly possible, depending on what subscribers are aware is missing, the fractional analysis will take 40 hours each month instead of four.
That loss corresponds to thousands of dollars per account every month…. When compared to an account’s performance that matches the main indexes, a devastatingly significant sum per year is lost.
They attempted to understand the learning curve of a new platform. TD Ameritrade lacked the tools necessary to conduct a thorough and accurate fundamental examination of equities, market conditions, and credit spreads. They were removed by TD Ameritrade. As a result, Investools’ customers have opted to quit TD Ameritrade.
