1. As a high frequency trader, I had a commission discount. They switched me to full commissions without any warning or reasoning....they tried to sneak it through basically
2. Their trading platform collapsed yesterday after the FOMC meeting. It was down about five minutes. Streamer quotes and trading were down the rest of the afternoon.
3. I tried to short ORCL after hours yesterday. They locked the trade and said it was 'pending broker review'. What broker review? It was a simple trade well within my account capital. After five minutes I cancelled the trade. Great 'review' guys. Thanks for nothing.
Stay away from this brokerage. There are too many other good ones that care about their clients to give this one your business.
