The DTC has no issue whatsoever with ERBB, this is a total farce. If your broker/dealer makes up any stories re: ERBB not being DTC clearable. You tell them they are full of shti, flatten your position and wire cash to an Etrade acct which takes 5 minutes to open. This perpetual talk about trading issues is utter BS. Here you have a stock that is poised to run and your brokerage house is lying to you about reasons they won't extend an order to the Market Maker. Here's the breakdown. Schwab actually pays Etrade to allow them to route orders through Etrades trade desk. No probs with Etrade no probs w/ Schwab. There hasn't been even a rat fart from the DTC regarding ERBB.
