    VERY STRANGE . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Yesterday, I got the following alert from Schwab. 7 minutes before the close. The rise and the volume were evident much earlier.

    Thursday, December 01, 2005 3:53 PM
    ======================================
    Alert Triggered for Rambus Inc
    RMBS's Trading Volume Exceeded Daily Average by 50.8%

    RMBS is up $0.94 or 5.6% to $17.73 on heavy volume that exceeded its daily average by 50.8%. This performance is better than the broader averages as the S&P 500 is up 1.2% on the day.

    Please note you will receive only one "Trading Volume Exceeds Daily Average" alert per day for Rambus Inc.
    =================================

    And, this morning, I got this alert:

    Friday, December 2, 2005 as of 9:34AM EST
    =======================================
    Alert Triggered for Rambus Inc
    RMBS's Trading Volume Exceeded Daily Average by 54.2%

    RMBS is down $0.03 or 0.2% to $17.70 on heavy volume that exceeded its daily average by 54.2%. This performance is in-line-with the broader averages as the S&P 500 is down 0.1% on the day.

    Please note you will receive only one "Trading Volume Exceeds Daily Average" alert per day for Rambus Inc.
    ==================================

    At 9:34 am today there really was nothing of significance to alert anybody. The vol in the first four minutes this morning was merely 114 K shares.

    Does anybody else have such strane alerts from Schwab.

    BTW, I never got from them a timely alert, always late, very late, except this morning!

    • Heard this yesterday :
      Many parents in this country used to tell their kids to eat all the food on their plates because the children in China and India are starving. Now parents tell their children to do their homework or the children in China and India will get their jobs.

      What to do, IMO :
      Our country needs to shift from LEFT brain teaching, thinking, and working, to RIGHT brain teaching, thinking and working. That is where the job market is heading - away from anything repetitive and rote. Left brain work includes but is not limited to manufacturing, most engineering for manufactured products, accounting sevices, some legal services, telephonic reception services, clerical services, etc.

    • IMO Ameritrade has been doing very well for the customer. I didn't like them a few years back but they are a much better company now. I am an Apex member and almost everything is free including Level II etc. You do have to pay for the Advisory letter but I already monitor over 10 of those so I don't subscribe to theirs. Maybe TD Waterhouse will bring their cheap trade prices with them. :)

    • I didn't like Ameritrade because they charge extra for every little things, so I moved to TD Waterhouse. Soon TD Waterhouse is merging with Ameritrade. I will be back to where I started. It seems that I cannot get way from Ameritrade.

    • Ameritrade bought Datek back in 2002. I was pissed at first and Ameritrade went through some growing pains. I went back to ETrade but their customer service went to hell. I trade both now but Ameritrade has definitely improved their service and features.

    • Re: "California outfit was called Pacific Brokerage Services (PBS) in Los Angeles. I hope that helps your memory."

      That is correct. So in less than 4 years:

      -Pacific Brokerage Services
      -Dreyfus Brokerage Services
      -Brown & Company
      -JP Morgan
      -and coming by Jan 1st, E-Trade

      Is that a record for the most ownership changes of a single brokerage firm?

    • Re: "Smart cards"

      No, I don't think so. They wanted something interactive; they were even talking about fingerprint readers.

      I am VERY familiar with smart cards, my last job (for 7 years) was as Product manager for all card devices for my employer, and I was that employer's representative on the ANSI committee that sets card standards. [And if you know who my employer was, you would understand the real significance of that]. However, all of that work is now done in Europe thanks to "globalization".

    • I've been with Datek for a while but I believe it was officially an Ameritrade rep that called me because this incident took place late last year.

    • Rambiskit (Watz),

      California outfit was called Pacific Brokerage Services (PBS) in Los Angeles. I hope that helps your memory.

      Best,

    • Smart cards.

      About four years ago, I heard that all credit cards must switch to "smart cards" by some year. It might have been 2006. But so far have seen hard evidence about the change. Only AmEX implements that in their "blue" cards.

    • Actually, I recall reading that the US Treasury is going to require banks to issue some kind of hardware security device that will be required [by Federal law] to do online banking transactions, and that this was going to happen relatively quickly (in 2006)].
