thinkorswim TOS platform not available for EU citizens?

  1. I wanted to open a TOS account and found out that as a citizen of the European Union I am not eligible to open an account with TD Ameritrade.
    I just wanted to use the TOS platform for charting purposes. Not necessarily trade there.
    Any ideas? Does anyone have an unfunded TOS account which he doesn't need anymore?
    Thank you

    Where do you want to trade? I would not say that TOS charts are the best part of their service? Very slow.

    i have a TOS papermoney account that i have been using for more than 2 years now, all the charts are in real time. I currently use it as my main charting software

  4. TOS has some other great features I am interested in like TOS on demand and Benzinga Squawk and some more. I am trading US-equities.
  5. Thanks Peter. As far as I know their papermoney account last only 60 days and comes with delayed data if you dont have a live account. Curious how you have a papermoney account for 2 years with real time data?

    Same here, best demo when compering with IB, DAS ( because of only 14 days trial ) or Ninja.


    Charting on mobile version works just great.

  7. How long do you have the TOS demo already and with realtime or delayed data?

    So far almost for 2 months, trial time is 60 days, about to end.

    Im not sure you know, is it a real time or delayed.

    But for a peper trade and practice, that has no impact at all (?)

    Mobile charting,




    Trade screen

    Tablet would be even better.


    Im from EU, Netherlands,

    Tho the only thing i had to do to prove It, was , nothing.
    That's for paper account, not sure about real one and different country, e.g Lithuania, was not allowed, even in EU.

  9. You can get real-time data on TOS paper trading if you call TDAmeritrade and ask for it.
