Pat:Maybe I'm naive, but I just don't believe that all of the complaints are from rival brokerage companies. Buyandhold just raised the minimum annual fees I have to pay over 1000% (7.96 for 4 ezvest investments vs. 6.99/month). Granted your unlimited trading is still a great deal, but the monthly plan DOES NOT work if you only have 200 dollars or less to invest EVERY MONTH. It is absolutely ridiculous and asinine to be shocked SHOCKED that people are upset that buyandhold increased their fees. Buyandhold marketed themselves as a super cheap company perfect for socking away small amounts of money into the market. This is no longer the case and some people are justifiably upset, especially if they had a custodial account.Look, like I said, I have no hard feelings that buyandhold bumped their fees. Obviously they couldn't make money on someone like me investing only $100/month. Fair enough, but please don't insult people with crap like that. Take the PR hit and move on. It was a regrettable decision, that had to be made.
