Guys & Gals- Have any of you recently tried to open an account with TDAmeritrade? I did this last week and they told me they do not open accounts for UK customers. I was a little shocked, as a few of my friends have accounts with them. So I asked them and they said the same thing. they could not open new accounts with them. lol If this is an improvement after buying TD Waterhouse, I'm not impressed. I don't want to start a thread to bash TDAmeritrade - so feel free to send me a private email if you've had the same experience. I would welcome any suggestion of other deep discount Brokers in the US or outside that I could apply to. They should offer trades for less than $10, fast execution and would prefer not to pay platform fees if I can avoid it. I have searched the following so far :- TDAmeritrade = Not taking new customers from the UK. Scottrade = Not open to UK customers. MBTrading = Not open to UK customers If you have any ideas other than IB I would be interested to learn of them. Many thanks to all of you for taking the time to read this message Jav.
