Investors beware!! No matter how well known the brokerage companies are (we all know the biggies) you cannot be too wary of a particular branch, it's managers and investment brokers ("financial advisor"-what a crock...) They are in this thing to make money-off of YOU!!! The more they trade, the more we pay them the more they make, the more the company exalts them (branch manager, 2nd vice president..what the h... is this load?!!) They ignore your needs, i.e. your risk factor, i.e. your life.... you can be transferred to another broker at any unknown time, they can ignore your buy or sell orders, and the beat goes right on into poverty. I've been there. I sued. I won. I have since learned the ins and outs of trading and the market and am the only one in charge of my money (I and my hateful uncle, Sam) It's tough climbing back up out of the trenches, but with time and patience and a lot of hard work, I'll make it. Love to you all, Mama
