along those lines, here's my tale of woe. Was lucky enough to spy Q at 89, immediately signed on to Schwab and attempted to by 60 shares. Schwab server comes back and tells me no-can-do. Imagine my anxiety mixed with a healthy dose of anger while I hold 45 minutes (this being on hold stuff has been going on for months) for my Schwab "registered representative", who can't understand what all the fuss is about and explains that I can only buy in lots of 100 ala HOLDR's. Well, I sez, I've been in and out of Q for months now and know better. Bottom line, the only thing he'll do for me is trade minus the lousy 30 dollar commission so I'm in at 100.5. Then he says somethin' about next time and I informed him there wouldn't be a next time. I understand Brown or Siebert is the place to go for a reasonable expectation that your trades will be executed and your calls answered. The contempt in which the suits at Schwab hold their customers nonplusses, but then what do I expect? Business will get away with what it can until one does something about it. Live and learn. Anyway here's hoping for an up Wednesday.
