You can trade US equities, options, futures, etc. The money transfers are handled thru your TD account. I am in the same boat As far as margins compared to U. Must be our conserative hint hint Harper nature TOS commissions are higher than IB however the data and software are free. The TOS platform includes charting and execution - lots of tools and customizable with extensive options support. OK for maybe swing or longer trades but a bit pricey for day trading equities. I have a couple of futures brokerage accounts in the US and I don't currently use my TOS account that much however I will be using it more in the future.
The reason being to spread the risk around. One model that I will use only requires a couple of trades per day, the extra commission and higher margin are not a big factor.
For more active futures day trading my approach is to utilize the low margin requirements and low commissions at a couple of US brokers AMP, Mirius, etc - take your pick. The balance of your 50k allocation can be used to generate a return elsewhere accessible. In this day and age it is difficult to figure out who is solid. Diversity is one method to reduce risk. Its hard enough to win - not good if it then gets stolen. Best of luck AdamGG.
