In addition to their own dedicated account, TD Financial Spread Trading customers will soon be able to trade on the go with the impending launch of a free iPhone app5, which will allow customers to monitor their portfolio and place trades from the palm of their hand, no matter where they are.
Darren Hepworth, Trading and Customer Services Director comments: “We always strive to ensure our customers have access to the best products and services. With the launch of the TD Derivatives Trading and TD Financial Spread Trading accounts, our customers can take control of their trading needs with two great services and create their perfect trading environment.
“Retail derivatives services are more suited to experienced traders. With this in mind, we request customers undergo status and appropriateness tests on a TD Derivatives Trading or TD Financial Spread Trading account. It is very important to remember that retail derivatives trades are subject to higher risks and not suitable for everybody. For this reason TD has also developed free demos of the TD Derivatives Trading and TD Financial Spread Trading accounts to help educate customers of the risks involved and to allow them to familiarise themselves with the services available.”
Important risk notes:
Margin Products and Spread Trading carry a high degree of risk to your capital. Losses can quickly and substantially exceed your initial investment. Margin Products and Spread Trading are not suitable for all investors. Trading Margin Products may require you to make further margin payments. You should fully understand the risks and seek independent advice if necessary. The value of your investments can go down as well as up. You may not get back all the funds that you invest.
