said trading capabilities have been restored to its Web site after being down for more than an hour earlier Monday.
"We did have a short amount of time where clients were unable to access their accounts through the Web site, but everything has been restored and is working fine," said Katrina Becker, spokeswoman for Ameritrade. "Client experience is obviously our No. 1 priority."
Becker said the company was still placing trades through brokers and "alternate means" while the site was down. The outage was too short to have any impact on the firm's financial results, Becker added. Ameritrade will release fiscal fourth quarter earnings on Oct. 19.
On Monday, the company rolled out its new online advisory service -- Amerivest -- to help investors design portfolios of exchange traded funds. Shares of Ameritrade were up 2.5%, or 29 cents, at $11.82.
