• Hey Coach May! Tell us about the
evening segments you’re now hosting.
We’ve rebranded our Monday and Wednesday evening webcasts to an “All About
Stocks” and “All About Options” series.
Each will adopt a specific theme every
month. For example, one month might focus on sector rotation. Another might look
at strategies for a bear market. The best
thing is that no matter where you are, you
can watch the webcasts on You Tube.
There are so many robust features on the
thinkorswim® platform. That’s why we provide these educational tools to our clients—
to help them get better acquainted with the
platform so they can use it efficiently.
What about the “rotating topic” series?
These topics also change every month, with
a general theme running throughout the
month. For example, in April we dedicated
the series to Financial Literacy Month and
supplemented the webcasts with articles
from The Ticker Tape. Another month
we may focus on understanding different
account types or solo 401(k) plans, for example. The series is offered every week and
we cover a topic within the theme. The last
week is a random session where we take
questions that were asked in other webcasts and explore them in greater detail. If
someone asks a question that can’t be addressed in a Q&A webcast, we may dedicate
an entire session to that question.
Our objective is to make all our clients
aware of the resources available to them.
We want to fill any gaps in financial knowledge our clients may have.
Can you tell us about the semiannual
I’d be happy to paint the Education Day
picture for you! Yes, every six months,
TD Ameritrade dedicates an entire day to
bringing educators and investors together
to address timely and timeless questions.
All other education webcasts and efforts are
suspended for the day to give full attention
to this priority, and as an Education Day
presenter, I can say these events are highly
