Anybody know more about this?
Any other jurisdictions that are affected?
I am a future trader focus on the emini NASDAQ 100, I live in Venezuela, South America. Most of my income come from trading activities. I day trade and also swing trade holding positions over night for days, weeks or months.
I had an ThinkorSwim account (more than 7 years) which was transferred to TD Ameritrade. I received an email from TD Ameritrade telling me that they have made the business decision to no longer offer brokerage services to clients located in certain foreign countries. Since I reside in one of those identified foreign countries they will proceed to close my account. This has shocked me. Now, I have to open a new futures brokerage account .
This is terrible!.
