TD Ameritrade Clients Look For Safer Options In Volatility

OMAHA, NE (AP) — TD Ameritrade clients continue to invest in stocks, but they are picking safer options amid the recent market volatility.

         The online brokerage says its Investor Movement Index fell to 4.76 this month from September's 5.24 reading. The six-point index is based on what investors are buying and selling.

         TD Ameritrade's Nicole Sherrod says investors continued trading more volatile stocks for more stable ones during the past month as the market continued its ups and downs.
