You can easily connect and manage your trading accounts inside the platform.
To access your trading accounts, select your profile picture in the top right corner and choose "Settings."
From the "Trading Accounts" tab, you can connect your brokerage account and manage all account types, including any paper trading accounts.
To connect a brokerage account, select the "Authorize on tdameritrade.com" button.
This will send you to your broker's secure log-in page. Input your account information and select "Log in."
You will immediately be re-directed to the trading accounts page. All of your connected and compatible accounts available for autotrading are displayed with their options approval levels.
You can always delete and remove connected accounts from the platform. You can also rename an account, which will only be visible within the Option Alpha platform.
Incompatible accounts are listed at the bottom of the page. Accounts are incompatible if they do not follow the strict order rules for safe automated trading. Learn more about Incompatible Accounts and how to make your accounts compatible.
You can simply reauthorize an account once it is made compatible. It may take your broker a day or longer to make any account changes.
Now that your brokerage accounts are connected to the autotrading platform, you are ready to begin trading.
