TD Ameritrade U and You

Mary Ryan

Learning financial and economic theories in the classroom is one thing. Giving students the opportunity to put those theories into practice using a real-time, virtual trading platform takes learning to a whole new level. TD Ameritrade U is the only program that provides free access to paperMoney on the thinkorswim platform. And you can be a part of it. 

The paperMoney software application is for educational purposes only. Successful virtual trading during one time period does not guarantee successful investing of actual funds during a later time period as market conditions change continuously.

Tom Sosnoff: Running with Risk and Opportunity

Tom Sosnoff

Tom Sosnoff, a former floor trader, became one of Chicago's well-known serial entrepreneurs in financial technology by building thinkorswim, an options-trading brokerage that he sold to TD Ameritrade seven years ago for $750 million. He then launched tastytrade, the largest digital financial network that produces eight hours of live content daily and has had over 40 million hours of videos watched in 150 countries. Tom also just launched tastyworks, his newest technology/brokerage venture that is content driven by tastytrade.

Tom loves to challenge people and to encourage them to take risk, make quick decisions, and build know-how in whatever you are passionate about. What separates Tom from other speakers is that he shares both successes and failures all while walking you through the assessment of opportunity. Tom believes that quantifying risk and empowering one to articulate risk can be learned. It doesn't have to be experiential and that confusion is what holds back a lot of our future stars. Where most people see fear, Tom sees opportunity. Tom Sosnoff believes success is impossible without taking on risk.

Please join Tom for an entertaining discussion as he shares his expert advice on how people can understand risk and seize opportunities that would otherwise pass them by.
