OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--An informed investor is a more confident investor. That’s the philosophy behind today’s launch of the TD Ameritrade Network1, a brand new live broadcast line-up offering real-time market news, insights and investor education. The network’s programming features experienced journalists and financial experts, including former Bloomberg journalist, Oliver Renick; TD Ameritrade‘s market commentators, Victor Jones and JJ Kinahan; former president of Tradersaudio.com, Ben Lichtenstein; as well as a variety of contributors and guests.
The TD Ameritrade Network curates the news and content that matters most to investors, providing valuable information as they make decisions of ‘what’ to invest in, ‘why’ and ‘when’, but also takes it to the next level of application with learning the ‘how’.
“With more than 10 million client accounts we have incredible insight into retail investors and what kind of content they’re craving,” said Steve Quirk, executive vice president of Trading and Education for TD Ameritrade2. “The TD Ameritrade Network is exactly what the new generation of cord-cutting investors is looking for; real-time market news and investor education that can be viewed anywhere, anytime, on any device – for free.”
Six Hours of Live Original Programming
Viewable at www.tdameritradenetwork.com, the TD Ameritrade Network is available free to the public, starting with four hours of live original programming and expanding to six hours next month.
