Breakaway Broker Trend Alive And Well, TD Ameritrade Says


A full 348 brokers have joined TDA so far this year, up 20% from last year and more than double what the custodian took in back in 2008.


Fidelity has seen the number of new breakaways decline while Schwab reports a 9% increase, so this is not limited to TDA.


So much for arguments that the "breakaway broker" is a myth.
