Opening a Brokerage Account is Easier Than you Think
Be Ready for the next 5% pullback in the stock market and open your real brokerage account today!
Given that most market analysts are predicting a pullback of 5% or more from the recent market highs in the coming days, now may be the best time to open your real brokerage account so that you can buy in to the real stock market when the market dips.
Opening your first real brokerage account is easier than you think! You can do it all online now in less than 5 minutes and be up and trading in just a few days.
Gone are the days that opening a brokerage account required $10,000 cash just to open an account. Now you can open a brokerage account online and there are no minimum cash balances required. So if you just want to get started with $100 you can.
The timing is right for opening your first real brokerage account as TD Ameritrade now has one of the best offers and incentives I have seen in a long time. If you open and fund an account with at least $2,000, you will be able to trade commission free for 60 days. This is a great way to get started as this will save you $100s of dollars in commissions if you make must 2 trades a week.
All you need is your name, mailing address and SSN to complete the application. You can then mail in a check, or enter your checking account information online and fund your new account electronically, and/or set it up to add funds monthly.
Once your complete the online application, you should receive an email indicating the application was approved. If you provided funding information, the email will also tell you when the funds will be drawn into the account and on which date you would be able to start trading.
If you open the TD Ameritrade account and get to trade commission free for 60 days, then take advantage of it! The best thing to do is to dollar cost average into your favorite stocks. This means buy 33% of what you want in the first week, wait for some market dips and buy another 33% and then in a few more weeks (before the 60 days is up) buy the rest of what you wanted to spend on each stock.
And since you are just learning to trade and there are not commissions with TD Ameritrade for 60 days, don’t be afraid to take any profits you might have if you are starting to get nervous about the market. It is ALWAYS easier to sleep at night when you have cash in the bank and you are not worrying what the markets will do the next day.
