TD Ameritrade Forex Review 2020 - ForexBrokers.com

eToro vs Other Brokers

I've been doing some research on brokers for trading US stocks, and eToro seems like a great option - no commissions, standard forex conversion fees for cashing in, $5 fee for withdrawals.
However I noticed that more people in this sub recommend TD Ameritrade and IBKR who charge higher overall fees.
Is eToro not as good as how it is advertised (i.e., hidden fees)? Or are other brokers just more superior?

US Traders- Anyone tried Thinkorswim by TD Ameritrade?

I'm currently using OandA for my demo account, didn't like Forex.com much at all, and just had the thought of checking out Thinkorswim by TD Ameritrade.

I couldn't find much info on their website about forex, so I called and asked them questions. Here's what I found out:
I forgot to ask about minimum lot size, but I can call back and get that info.

Has anyone traded forex with them? How'd it go?

Options Trading

Hi All,
I just got this message from my overseas broker (TD Ameritrade)
"Dear Valued Client,
We have important news about your account. Because of a New Zealand regulatory requirement, accounts with a New Zealand address will no longer be allowed to maintain options, futures, or forex trading privileges. This permission(s) will be removed from your account on or after September 30, 2019. There will be no other changes to your service. Your trading platforms, commissions, and interest rates will stay the same. "
Anyone know what regulatory requirement they are talking about?
Also do you think its just a TD Ameritrade issue (e.g they can't be bothered complying) or will other brokers have the same issue?

Thanks

beginning to invest

ive never used reddit before so hold the bashing if im using it incorrectly. but heres my situation, im 17 trying to start investing, i wouldn't say im a "beginner" but by all means im no professional. ive been studying the broad idea of trading things suck as stocks forex, mutual funds money market accounts, etc. but ive deeply been studying stocks, specifically lower cost stocks. i really want to start investing but only have $500 dollars saved. i have an idea of what im doing as far as following trends, chart indicators, stock fundamentals, valuations. also i already have a td ameritrade account but ive just been using it as a tool, and have been investing fake money in the investopedia simulator. im just seeking some opinions on started with the capital i currently have. i dont plan on investing it all right away. i want to buy 1 stock at a time and study the outcomes and gains i get from it. and yes i plan to do lower cost stocks which some of you will hate on since theyre considered penny stocks. im not going to invest on impulse but on logical analytical decisions. also i was wondering if anyone has suggestions on what online broker to use. i personally love TD but i know their commission is going to hit hard in some investments. i do plan on eventually day trading so if anyone broker that offers a discount on active traders please suggest them. also im loving the think or swim layout if you know of a similar brokerage with similar tools.
so to shorten the questions up: 1) with $500 and good amount of beginners knowledge, do you think i would be ok to hop in? 2) what brokers do you prefer and why?

TD Ameritrade/Think or Swim

Hi! I'm new to forex and this subreddit and was wondering if anyone uses TD Ameritrade for your broker. I transferred some money from my main account yesterday into a forex account. The spreads seem decent, usually around 0.0001 during the active sessions. There is no additional commission for the $10000 lots which is good. The margin is $210 per lot. I'm not sure if this is good or not.
The main reason I started a forex account with TD Ameritrade is because I have some equity buy and hold positions and would like to continue trading futures at some point. Commissions for futures are kind of high, but I guess that's part of the price to pay for having an all in one broker.
Just wondering anyone's thoughts on using TD Ameritrade for forex.

Another new-to-forex post! Yay!

Hey everyone, first things first - I've already read through the sidebar & have done plenty o' research on my own.
I started trading in April, worked with a coach all summer, and have been daytrading with a PDT account since August. I'm looking into expanding or switching to forex, and I'm hoping some of you could provide me with some insight into a few concepts. I've been papertrading w/ ToS this past week to see how applicable my strategy is. Before you tear me apart for using a demo account - this is the first demo account I've used, and I've built up enough emotional scar tissue to where money is now just numbers on a screen to me. I had a mild, big loss + stress fueled breakdown in September and had to take a brief sabbatical to contemplate and consider my life's path (a few days of heavy drinking, a few more of sobering up, and a week of self reflection), but I got all that figured out so yeah... Anyway!
  1. Has anyone done real trading with TD Ameritrade? I already have an account with them so it would be sooo nice if I didn't have to open ANOTHER brokerage account (it would be #5 for me... too many to keep track of). In addition, I'm 20, so I'm not able to trade Forex with IB. Once I turn 21 I'll obviously be moving to them. For now, though, TD sounds alright because I know ToS inside and out, I've had an account with them for years, and the spread doesn't seem too bad as it's usually about 1 pip.
  2. Is there an accurate, reliable, real-time source for volume data? Volume is of course a pretty important part of trading, but as far as I can tell, most brokers only provide volume data for trades placed through their system. I understand that this is a result of the lack of a central forex market, so what can I do to compensate? Is there an aggregation service that pulls volume from multiple sources? Or do I have to rely on volume approximations based on spread, time of day, ticks, etc?
  3. Is there any sort of L2 for Forex? Again, a decentralized exchange problem.
  4. For those who are profitable - what's your average hold time? I try to keep it under a day, and that's always worked for me.
  5. Again, for those who are profitable - what's your thing? Order flow? Price action? TA? Not looking for specific strategies, just a general view of what works.
  6. Has anyone made the switch from stocks to Forex? What was your experience like? How much did you have to learn/relearn to adjust to the FX market?
Personally, I haven't done much actual stock trading. I've always preferred index tracking ETNs and the like. Too unpredictable once you get into stocktwits land. The smarter half of me is pretty good at playing momentum with entry at the first 5m consolidation/distribution. I'm also a big fan of shorting resistance bounces. The gambler in me likes to scalp. And that's the story of how I lost $200 in commission in ONE DAY once! I'm much better at not doing that now.
Here is one of my most recent trades, shorting the Euro as it bounced off the downtrend/previous high/resistance/retracement/overextension. Unfortunately I never filled any of my limit sells so I ended up taking 2 mini-lots to .096 (I bought early cause I'm a pussy) from .1022. Feel free to tear this one apart! I also took 5 mini-lots short from .0962 to .0952 this afternoon cause I felt like making more money. Mmm. To be fair, I also took 10 long from .0962 to .0958 because I'm a big dummy. Never trade against the trend! (one of my rules)
I know it's a hell of a lot of open ended questions. Thanks in advance for any answers y'all might have.
Edit: A sticky? I'm honored!

My favorite things for option traders

  1. option stack: historical options backtesting. Stop guessing and start testing your crazy ideas.
  2. alta 5 : automated options trading integrated with TD Ameritrade. Automate strategies.
  3. Think or Swim Volatility step: Analyze tab >Risk profile > click lines drop down > click vol step > 4 + vol step, then click the step drop down and do -5.0 for decreasing volatility. This allows you to see how volatility affects the p&L of a trade.
  4. Think or Swim: earnings tab, see if Implied volatility was right or wrong. aka did premium sellers win or lose by earnings date.
  5. Call your broker and negotiate a lower commission. Free money if you already trade frequently.
  6. Index options, Futures & Futures options are taxed favorably if you are in a taxable account.
  7. Futures options are not subject to 25k minimum PDT ( pattern day trader rule)
  8. Recognia classic pattern scan, sends you emails so you dont have to scan the universe of stocks.
  9. Tip Ranks for fundamental research. "stock gurus" have an actual track record now
  10. Economic Calendars: must have when you are daytrading. Forex Factory for an international economic calendar for when i dip my toe into currency options. Misses some domestic stuff so the Bloomberg calendar works well for those missing pieces. https://www.forexfactory.com/ https://www.bloomberg.com/markets/economic-calendar

Some questions from someone new to Forex

Hi. So, I've traded leveraged assets before... namely options. Recently, I discovered forex, and I realized certain immediate advantages:
All of that being said, I am extremely uneasy about certain aspects of forex, and maybe some of you can help me out.
My biggest concern is margin. As I said before, I traded options, which are leveraged derivatives. However, the leverage built into options contracts is not the same thing as margin leverage. With options, I could still only lose my own money. Personally, in my entire time trading, I've had very few problems with my orders, but I was always trading in cash accounts, so I never much cared if there were minor hiccups. My worries are:
Forgive me if these are noob margin questions, but I haven't really read any personal stories of people actually losing a bunch of margin on a leveraged position. I've heard of forex brokers filing for bankruptcy, but not individual traders over a forex trade... does this happen? And if so, how often, and what do you guys do to deal with the extraordinary leverage in the forex world?
