  1. Nobody can become financially successful over night. They put in background work but we tend to see the finished part. Fear is a dangerous component, hindering us from taking bold steps we need in other to reach our goals.

  2. I opened an account with Intereactive Brokers and despite I have a great experience (more than 30 years) trading options and futures the system didn't accept my request but TD Ameritrades accepts me.

  3. really wish I would have watched this video… they denied my approval and now I have to wait 60 fucking days? Im trying to trade this right NOW. Im considering deleting account and opening a new one but I wonder if they'll catch onto that? since all my fking info is in this account lol

  4. Interactive Brokers is also a bit strict with their permissions still trying to get the approval:P Thnaku either way for the video

  5. Hello, I marked level 1 on the form, now I want to buy and sell options and these operations are rejected, how do I change the level? Although I already sent a new form, they made me understand that my request was rejected and that I should buy shares to sell options.


  6. Hello, 2:17 Level 2- long calls and puts. You say they have a low probability of making money. I don't understand. If you buy, say, a 4 week out call and the stock moves up, don't you make money? If you buy a 4 week out put and the stock moves down, don't you make money?

  7. Hello, What are the best ways to answers questions under general tab in TD Ameritrade to get approved for spreads options technique? Specifically Financial information, investment objective for account and option experience please?

  8. Hey ! Thank you very much for this info ! I opened my account and was feeling a little concerned with the amount that they prefer to accept you, I was told that the more you make the better but I don’t make much. Anyways, this was very clear for explaining what they want.

  9. Im not telling you to be dishonest… but this is why you should do it! Haha I love it keep up the good work! We appreciate it!

  10. Thank you for uploading this. Its so ridiculous though. Options are the easiest and safest thing to trade if you know what you're doing but i can open a cfd account with 100x leverage and place a trade on btc with a 500 dollar spread no questions asked.

  11. yo i need some help , i went to my profile and went to investor profile and it said i have no eligible account to upgrade, i’m on e*trade new account

  12. This is glorious, been searching for "option trade adjustments" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Winoorfa Option Olegroson – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my buddy got cool success with it.

  13. TD Ameritrade is RIDICULOUS to get approved. They make you jump so through so many hoops that I lost interest in them. You would think with their VERY HIGH futures trading fees they would be more easy to get approved. So I did everything you posted here in this video and I was still denied. I even funded my account with $25K before I applied. My income is over $250K / year, I put 1million in liquid assets. About the only thing I can think of is I put 2 years experience. All I wanted to do was trade futures and yet they make you do all this crap about options trading that I'm not interested in. I do love the ThinkorSwim platform, I just use it to decide my trades and then go through Infinity or Tastyworks. People don't waste your time opening an account on TDA, there are so many better brokers out there with MUCH lower fees and trading margins to trade through. Peace.
