am i blind or is ameritrade not listed in the "brokers" page of this web site, and why?
notice that as well. I have ameritrade right now and am looking at other options. prices arent bad for longer term positions, but the fills arent great. some of my orders simply arent filled. i had to call them twice yesterday to dump a long position that the CPU would take. They were nice enough to give me a favorable fill price form the first call.
My bet is that they are not sponsors. Probably that was the reason why this thread was moved to the feedback section. (it doesn't show up on the main page)
Ameritrade is not a sponsor, but there are plenty of folks listed on the Brokers page that are not sponsors. Man, if we only had that many sponsors, maybe the mods could earn a salary!
The fine trading companies listed as "Feature Firms" are sponsors, of course.
Seriously tho, Baron should know why, unless it was some accident.
Our site caters to Active/Day traders, hence we only list Direct-Access Brokers. http://www.elitetrader.com/br/

"The first question that we have to ask ourselves (about these acquisitions) is how unbiased is the order routing? Direct access came to be because there was need for a trader or a customer to get the best execution possible..."
Scottrade does not seem to have direct-access routings or conditional triggers/orders that most active traders' need---but somehow managed itself to be in the ET's list of brokerage firms. Ameritrade offers direct routing options including ARCA, BRUT, etc.'s re-routing features for better prices; but like Scottrade, it also does not have per-share pricing.
I lost out some good cash because of scottrades slow ordering system. I will be at mb trading next week for now, much better broker
