Well, Think or Swim is just as bad or worse. They need to get their act together! TD is taking longterm clients and screwing them to the wall! Every time I get a training on TA or TorS, the trainer has no clue how to use the platforms either! The training sessions are a complete waste of time. SHAME ON YOU, TD! YOU show ABSOLUTELY NO ALEGIANCE TO YOUR LONGTERM CLIENTS.
As I said to head whom emailed me back - the hours I spent emailing you this that was time money not spent trading, dd, ta analysis so on... horrific but like Yahoo (when message boards over ten years ago were superb, and MSNBC stock scouter was THE best long gone...) got to get used to it or if you have a big enough account move on... Best and now ruined... 15 years with AMTD.
I do not like Ameritrades new homepage and I hate Ttrade Architect will be transferring my Accounts soon.Don't know who the lucky winner of my account will be yet but would like to do it before oct. is over and be trading in my New Account for the rest of this year.
As well, (just got off the phone with them) they are forcing users to their new and improved platform. Fonts smaller, no color banding (I used to design financial graphics for a NYC WS firm) (eye sees brain perceives) so grey on white!!! Snap ticket - now another window (used it to set up trade).. A mess and now FROZEN - not working (they suggest I take THE tutorial!!!) What a mess. Decades user - need to move on any suggestions?
I agree. I have been with TD for about a decade. I liked the simplicity of "Streamer." Sorry to say TD, but it seems that TD Architect was an in-house programming/coding job that appears sloppy, inaccurate, nonuser friendly, and pretty darn boring!! Why change something that worked not just very good, but great, in my humble opinion?
I opened a Scottrade account a while back ($500 to open) because I had a feeling this would happen because of known problems with java in streamer. I do all my trading in Fidelity. I have 1000 shrs BAC in TD and am WAY up so I just leave it there. Also own some JNK with ETF comissionless trades. The Scot is a good streamer, not quite as good as TD streamer. One thing I don't like in Scot is there are alerts for prices but there is no sound with it. A small box opens up and the alert is sent to your email. Also the the mini chart in Scot does not show an after hours chart but TD does. I won't close my TD account but I will use the Scot streamer and Tr Ark as just another site with my lists still in there. Also Scot will alert you to a sign off because you walked away for a while as TD lets you keep on for 8 hours. But if you have to sign back on again you do NOT loose your streamer and all the settings. So if you are looking for something similar, go to Scottrade. But I agree. ThisTrade Ark really SUCKS!!!
Thank you. TD keeps telling me how everybody just loves Architect. Never mind that they all have to admit that the are not familiar with Command Center or Streamer. I think Architect is an excrement sandwich and thanks to you I now know that I'm not the only one who thinks so.
Datek user before AMTD bought them out for their streamer. I have suggested they grandfather in all the old users and then lock the door and let no one else in. Sell their POS TA to new customers since they will not know there is a better platform. When we die off then they can dump the system. I will pay for it. Give me a choice. When AMTD speak to you none of their reps have ever use streamer.
At what point will they ask me to close my account and go some where else since I have called them every name in the book. They keep on saying you will like it, Try it. AMTD is forcing me into a smaller world with very few windows.
