TradeKing is now Ally Invest. We’ll update this page with any new promotions and bonuses that get offered by Ally Invest.
Ally acquired TradeKing in 2016 and has been working on bringing the two companies together. Current TradeKing users will have to transition over to Ally to access their accounts and start trading again.
Prior to the change, TradeKing was very good about offering promotions for free trades, transfer fee reimbursements, and referral bonuses.
I’ll review the current offers from Ally Invest below.
*You can see all the current Stock Broker promotions here.

*Confirm current rates with the brokerage(s)
For current TradeKing users, the transition over to Ally will be an easy one, with pricing and most features remaining the same. You’ll only really notice name branding and URL changes. For new users who are looking for a low cost brokerage, Ally Invest is a great choice and the current promotion definitely makes them worth consideration. For experienced investors, I still recommend TD Ameritrade overall for their fantastic ThinkorSwim platform and long track record (they’ve also lowered their pricing for 2017 and acquired Scottrade).
