TD Ameritrade Online Broker Review

TD Ameritrade is a top online trading firm that began as a small brokerage company, known as First Omaha Securities. TD Ameritrade has grown over the years, mostly via a strategy of acquisition. For over 35 years it has remained a highly innovative, high growing pioneer in the brokerage industry.

In 1988, TD Ameritrade was the first broker to offer touch-tone phone trading. The firm became a publicly traded company in March 1997, after which it consolidated its various brokerage units into one broker dealer, Ameritrade, Inc.
