Thinkorswim going downhill
Thinkorswim Closing UK Accounts
While things have improved recently, their cretinous support seem to have become more stupid by a large number of IQ points, who seem incapable of reading and understanding English written in an email.
Now, Thinkorswim have decided to close accounts for UK residents, regardless of how long those accounts have been with them. This is yet another example of how poor their customer service has become since being bought out.
A once great little broker, that was eaten up by TD Ameritrade and are now a shadow of their former self.
A feature rich platform with excellent fills with options.
With any feature-rich platform, there are sometimes glitches with new releases. TOS had to withdraw a release recently for the first time in several years.
I've received good quality and prompt technical support for my queries. Not always the answer I wished to hear, but that is not a promptness or quality issue.
I am concerned about the consequences of the merger with TD Ameritrade. On three occasions with three different requests I was told that my request was either on hold pending integration. On one especially important to me (a FOX account) I was told it was unlikely that this would be provided in the future so I should not waste my time on development.
TOS = POS Run away from them as fast as you can
If I had it to do all over again, I would have never gotten hooked up with these losers. Can't wait for my Ninja Trader paperwork to be completed.
Run away from TOS. You will regret trying to trade on their platform.
