TD sure responded lightening fast! I didn't expect that. I have a Schwab and a TD account and a Wells account. Schwab had 4.95 commission, TD 6.95 & Wells you get 100 free trades a year. Even though Schwab has cheaper commissions they didn't win over substantial accounts from TD. I was surprised that they could evoke this kind of pressure on the other brokerages. TD must have been ready to implement the 0$ commissions...their reaction just happened too fast. TD is going to lose commission money but I would think they would gain clients/traders and gain misc account fees from the likes of the Robinhoods.
Wells Fargo brokerage is horrible because of no after hour trades....pretty scary stuff. I think you can call in and get an exception but you can't do it on your online account.
***I corrected my buy in AAPL date on my last post (Dec 26). My Nov buy is in an IRA so I can trade it anytime but haven't done so yet.. Re: E*TRADE will be screwed if they don't follow suit.
Dumb luck streak going on twenty years. Follow at your own risk ;O)
" People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
