I guess I've learned the semi-hard way about the evils of brokers.
Um, no. You learned about the (how to say this politely??) non-optimal-ness of blindly giving your money to a stranger and hoping they'll make a profit for you.

even if I get nowhere with this, my complaint will stay on record with FINRA.
Which exactly zero people in the whole world will care about. Or even look at.
After all, even *you* didn't research this broker before you gave your money to her. And as somebody already said, all this was undoubtedly clearly spelled out in one of the 100+ page documents that you didn't read.

Drop it.
Get over it.
Put on your big-boy pants and move on.
Stop sweating the small stuff and concentrate on making money.

You got a cheap lesson. A lot of us have learned similar lessons along with a LOT more money than you lost.
