What’s New From DAS – May 2024

Earnings Season Update and Correction Alert | Important Update for TD Ameritrade Users

Earnings season has been off to a solid start, with many companies beating, but forward guidance has been a major factor leading the recent drive down in the markets. Tech companies have also been at the forefront of weakness with Tesla, Apple and Nvida all showing signs of potential trouble ahead. With these factors as well as interest rate cuts being pushed back, the market is on unstable ground. Check out this month’s blog post that does an in-depth analysis on current earnings as well as what the future outlook may hold.

Important Information for TD Ameritrade/Schwab Users

Please note we are fully aware of the deadline that Schwab will be transitioning any remaining TD Ameritrade accounts over to Schwab by May 11th-14th. We have been working tirelessly with the access and the limited documentation that have been released to us to have a fully functioning solution after the transition. However much of this is still outside of our control as we are still awaiting some critical changes on Schwab’s end to deliver a reliable and stable environment to Schwab users for live trading. Any current TD users that have been switched over to Schwab will not be able to place live trades through the DAS Trader Pro platform until the environment is tested and proven stable. However, our users can still enjoy the full usage of our real-time simulated environment and usage of real-time market data. We are also offering FREE access to Market Replay to any current TD users who keep their subscription with us until the live trading environment is deployed. We are doing everything that we can to expedite this process to ensure that Schwab users will be able to place live trades on DAS, but we do not have a definitive timeframe as to when this will be complete. Please review this page for more updates.
