I promised I'd research the referral process for any of you interested in switching from Hells... I mean Wells Fargo ... ING Sharebuilder ... or any other brokerage into TD-Ameritrade.
Here's the deal: I can refer anyone interested - and if you accept it - you will get $100 plus free trades for 30 days
This should be done in a reliable way to protect each of you from solicitation - so if you are interested - add me as a friend here in the forum and we can set it up really easily. That will protect your identity from those lurking in the shadows in here...
In order to do the referral - I'll need your name and email address.
If you ARE new to trading - This is my attempt at saving you the months of anguish I endured under both Wells Fargo/Wells Trade and ING Sharebuilder.... each of whom charge you fees for large orders and in some cases an exhorbitant amount of money just to trade a penny stock (34.95 at wells)
All the fees at TDA are a flat 10 bucks. No extra fees or large order fees. Plus you'll get free trades for the initial signup.
Disclaimer: I am NOT a representative of TDA - this is simply my way of helping out any of you interested in taking advantage of the same things I use daily. I wish you all the best luck and look forward to the names/emails so we can get things rolling.
p.s. feel free to use this thread to discuss your experiences - both positive and negative at ANY brokerage - so others may learn. Even TDA... although they are nearly perfect IMHO....
also: here is the current offer you will receive:
