i used e-trade, left because their took 5 hours to confirm my limit order cancellation. So i lost 10k because e-trade rejected my market sell order even i cancell my previously placed (and never executed limit order).
if u r using e-trade or thinking about it, it's listed as the worst e-stock trader ny e-commerce magazines, bad reputation. My friend and auditor partnet works for Deloitte & Touche , which is aduitor for e-trade told me that e-trade's financial is in big trouble, will go chapter 7 bankruptcy in 1 year. I am not trashing e-trade because my bad experience with them , just want to share with you what I know. Plus you also know egrup had been downgraded by lot of famous brockages firms. etrade is not doing good at all.
