Looking back at their website, I can't find a place where it specifically says 'our stock selection is limited,' or some variation of that. I only find one page where it offers to let you search the 'list of available stocks.' I guess I just assumed that they were listing out all the stocks that were available at other institutions.

I think they probably should provide a way to view All the securities they offer without having the search for specific ones without having to open an account first. So, I do agree on that.

Had someone pointed all this out to me beforehand, I could have made a much more informed decision before I moved my accounts. Hopefully, someone else will find this useful in something akin to that way.

Better disclosure would certainly be better.

And, as I said, I'm a former customer as well, so I'm by no means defending them. :)

There are some good aspects of it, but also some really stupid aspects of it.
