OK, maybe my bad; The "streamer element" on Snap-Ticket was stuck. Once I disabled it, I was then able to place a trade. I still don't want to have to rely on Ameritrade as my only go-to stock-trading service; And I still think they screwed a lot of folks with their inferior streaming service, which I don't even look-at anymore, preferring Scottrade's Java-based platform!
A-trade STINKS, imo! They need a good streamer, b/c if you trade more than a non-trader, you HAVE to have a platform that is clear-concise and accurate! When they got-rid of their Java-based Streamer, and tried to get everyone to switch-over to Trade-Architect, for one, you can't/couldn't even see the symbols, b/c the color differentiation was non-existent, and TA is so big-and-cumbersome to load-up, and then it logs-you out, if you step away from you computer for 5-minutes! BUNK!
