    Can someone explain?

    What is the reason to stop command center and streamer? I have been their client since datek times and due to this I'm seriously looking for an alternative to this company.

    • I think this was a real BS excuse for a cruddy platform upgrade. It must be about the money, as it always is, you see, greed leads people to pretty stupid decisions. I predict many will flock to other trading platforms, AMTD stock price will feel it eventually, and there should be no surprises!

      Sentiment: Sell

    • As Don Kaufman explained in a TDA online webinar last week, CC and Streamer - as presently configured - have not been able to keep up with the burgeoning increase in high-speed data flow (four-fold since 2006) that traders and platforms now have to keep up with (I'm paraphrasing his comments).

      Well, with all due respect, Don, I'm not one of TDA's highly-desired, high-speed options traders, and CC works just fine for my small cap stock trading. I don't need, or want, thinkorswim's frenetic, hyperactive, over-built and confusing mess; and Trade Architect's unyielding, one-dimensional feature set lacks so much of CC's critical nuance as to be more a trading hindrance, than a help.

      I'd happily pay richly each month for continued access to Command Center. But TDA's technological hubris won't even make that arrangement possible, apparently.
