Oh contre, all my trade were executed becuase of a Scottrade imposed limitation on my trailing stops. Other than this, Scottrade is OK for my style of investing. But beware. I can get more accurate L2 Quotes from a free site. Absolute nightmare. Website full of bugs, freezes, and random links. Is this a business??? I have been with Scottrade for a long time. I have never had any troubles at all. The best brokerage experience I have had. They are responsive to my inquiries and requests.
Quick to execute not only trades but account matters. I have been trading with Scottrade for many years. I have recently identified a pattern of trade execution that deprives me of profits, and increases my losses. Scottrade uses marketmakers who apparently are allowed to make a profit on our trades in addition, I presume, to a regular commission based on the number of trades they make. As one of many examples, I today put up a stock for sale at a limit price of 5.
The bid was at arount 5. In the process, the market maker made 2. Being only shares, this was only 25 cent. However, that is 25 cents that I should have made, as there was obviously a willing buyer at more than 5. The rule as I understand it is that a market maker must execute a trade at the best possible price.
The best price available to me at that moment was obviously 7. So, how could the market maker take away 3 cents per share of my profit for himself? This goes on all the time with my transactions, and probably adds up to hundreds of thousand of dollars extra money per day for the market makers. My question is this: Scottrade is responsible for employing these market makers and knowing that we are not getting the best possible executions. And, another post on this site has informed me that Scottrade uses Knight — a separate company of which Roger Riner owner of Scottrade is on the Board.
This sounds like a conflict of interest to me, and a failure to provide exectuions as promised, and the way they are supposed to be done. I would like to bring an action against Scottrade and the market makers they employ for my lost profits. How much money do you want to lose? Generally speaking Scottrade is getting better all around except in one area: customer service.
It completely sucks. Because they have a branch model they cannot centralize and control quality. My branch is unresponsive unless you call and call again yet they say to fax forms in…. While generally a good broker for my stock and mutual fund trades, the more esoteric things like selling short shares, certain thin traded securities, etc.
All to often you have to call your branch office for satisfaction and they come through for you. Unfortunately, for them, I found a better broker not on your listings. I like to trade using the Scottrade elite platform.
The only thing I have trouble with sometimes is trying to sell my positions when the market turns against me. Their whole platform freezes up for some odd reason and it ends up costing me big bucks. Yes, I know…I should probably just go somewhere else where these problems can be avoided altogether. I then bought some stocks using most of that money after the account said I had that amount available to trade.
I have over 20 years investment experience. My experience with online trading is the tail of two cities I have had great success with E-trade. Scotttrade also appears to perform well, however I do need more time to properly evaluate this company.
As far as TD Ameritrade, you have no control over your account; I have had good trades backed out and I have not been able to execute certain trades. Their front page Balance and Positions is the weirdest thing I have ever used. E-trade gives you your gain and losses immediately.
They are making incredible profits and myself and others feel their staff is ether demoralized or in denial. Schwab is worse than TD Ameritrade. This is my experience, I am not endorsing any trading house, however, please be careful with all online brokers. These guys cost me a lot of money with poor trade executions and even totally delayed order entry.
There software is slower than others — so you lose money trying to get in. Plus, no site has as many problems as this one — goes down fairly regularly wen the market heats up.. With all the good brokers out there why try this one — runnnnnn! The level 2 quotes do not correctly reflect all bid and ask prices. I placed a limit order which at a bid price and could see the volume on the bid of the level 2 quote system was less than what I was requesting. This is a common problem.
Also, for Scottrade Elite users, if you pull up a Daily chart viewing 8 months of symbol ADP, you will see that on new years day the chart will repeat itself. It really diminishes the confidence I have with this company. I am pulling out all my money and transferring my older IRA accounts out of Scottrade due to horrible customer service at their Washington DC branch. I recently signed up for an individual account with Scottrade and used their MoneyDirect deposit method to fund my account.
You authorized it. We will attempt to withdraw again. I am totally blown away by their attitude and attempt to take my money just cuz they got my bank account details! Goodbye Scottrade! Last week I was holding a position overnight. I got up in the morning just before open to monitor my position. I tried for about minutes and finally I got in. Meanwhile my stock has peaked and then came back down below open. When I called Scottrade they said that somehow everything got sent to one router and it got overwhelmed.
He seemed pretty casual about it. I asked him if he could make for my losses and of course he said no. I have since requested a wire transfer of my funds to my checking account. My trades have already settled but Scottrade is just sitting on my money. They take their fees pretty quick, but you need an act of congress to get them back. By the way this was Scottrade Oakland. Will mislead investment. Called and eMail many many time, but they did not fix the problem.
Scottrade is absolutely fantastic in everything that they do. All of their and bugs have been fixed. Ignore the trash on this page about problems. But, I had only one partial closed position in same day yesterday within five business days due to an understandable personal reason.
Another two trades were repurchase only and should not be counted as day trades at all and Scottrade admitted that today Therefore, just one trade and now they still insisted on their restriction on my account and asked me to put more fund into my Scottrade account. Now, with only one partial trade on the same day with a particular personal reason, they put on restrictions on my account immediately even without 1 week waiting fund adding time like in November, and just asked for more fund.
With these two faked? PDT alerts, I start to doubt that Scottrade might just try to collect more cash fund from their customers in current credit freezing financial environment. When market went unstable, I have started to pull out profit and fund from Scottrade since last October. But, they definitely should never do this.
I will look for some other better and fair brokers. Scottrade realy is great! I did a review of all available brokers and chose them in the end. If you use this referral code you will get 3 free trades when you sign up too: LIRT Scottrade has always been there when I needed a question answered and help doing any online trading. I am very pleased with their service. A lot of the issues I read here appear non-existent for me. It will reap beautiful dividends and less headache.
My only worry is the execution being worse with TradeKing than Scottrade. I had been with Scottrade little more than a year, overall excellent except Firefox browser often freeze and hung application on Scottrade site but MS Explore never crash. Dump scottrade…before they get caught in legal trouble …. If you always have small amounts of money uninvested, than why not put it in a high yield account? You people make no sense sometimes.
Scottrade has been great. If you tend to leave money uninvested long enough for the interest rate to matter that much, put it in a CD. If you want an extra percent on your money, move it to a high yield savings account. Have been with Scottrade for a year with a large account. Excellent personal customer service and no concerns with trade execution. If you call, a human will answer within 2 minutes every time. One on occasion, I was absolutely strapped for cash and a broker helped me liquidate my account and get a wire transfer to my bank without any fees or charges beyond trading costs.
Short-selling was easy, but options seem to be off limits for some reason. Scottrade has just lowered the interest rates they pay you for loose cash you have hanging around. I am seriously considering switching online brokers. I am a buy-and-hold, long-term investor, buying blue-chips such as GE and Disney, and up-and-comers such as Google and Apple. I usually have a few grand sitting around for 6 months, waiting for the next major dip.
Paying out near-zero interest is a cheap move, nickel-and-diming the very investors ScotTrade claims to target. Are there any better brokers out there?? The trading platform Scottrade Elite has recently begun failing on a dial up line. My response time for a chart, graph, or trade can be 5 minutes or longer. I have had to move to Schwab. Their cyber trader is great! I use Scottrade for a Dogs of the Dow account i. Like others have said, their website has not infrequent problems — but they allow you to deal with their local branches by phone too.
This is a nice deal for a cheap online brokerage. I inherited quite a bit of stock and am receiving stock certificates in the mail. I decided to open an account at Scottrade because they have local branches I could deliver the stock to instead of sending signed certificates in the mail. I took the certificates on April 13th and signed and gave them to the person who waited on me.
When the account was still not showing the stock 11 days later, I called customer service. The branch manager says the stock certificates were lost in their St. Louis office. Louis says they never made it there. The manager says they sent me paperwork to fill out and I should have had it last week, but they sent it US mail and not Fedex. No one seems to care that they lost my signed stock certificates. My son is fighting with the IRA over a tax report Scottrade sent them.
It appears they showed a gain when it was actually a loss of a few thousand dollars. Now the IRS is saying he owes 3, dollars from the Scottrade report gain tax. It appears someone marked it posItive instead of negative. What a mess. Phone call to Scottrade resulted in the person on the line for Scottrade saying if anything, he should have a refund coming. Try to get the IRS to understand that after it has been reported as a profit. Scottrade has been no help at all in this mess they created.
I hate Scottrade with a capital H. Everything is just bad. From the incompetent brokers to the horrible executions! Trust me go to TD Ameritrade and you will thank me. Certified checks can be forged too! Are you so stupid that you think it not possible for someone to counterfeit a certified check? Let me guess you were in a hurry to by SIRI because your a financial wiz. You sir are an idiot. Through my brief 5 yrs of trading — Scottrade has been exasperating in terms of keeping their servers up, running, and available.
Note, however, I am still there. They need at least one additional hardware expert and one additional senior programmer in their central offices. My active, not rapid, trading style is mildly disrupted by the very frequent general site failures. Scottrade upper management must take the blame for losing their web site far too often, and for tolerating obvious flaws in their software; however, it is really unfair to blame them for many of the complaints you present.
Scottrade makes a point of not offering guidance. They should not! I actually appreciate them. What does this tell you about them managing your money? Charlie is a moron. First off, Nite not Knight. Yes, Rodger is on the board but they do not route to nite every time. You need some education. Check out the order execution system at Scottrade. After reading all the comments from Pa residents I agree and give Scottrade the highest recommendation. Could your service depend on the office you deal with?
Scottrade is the best online broker, period. No automated recordings, just real people, who will do whatever it takes to help me out and answer my questions. Read an article stating to use Scottrade only if do a few trades each month but if trading more often, not to use Scottrade as you would loose money.
Stated Scottrade did not handle their on traces. Scottrade is the 2nd best decision I have made investing. The first was leaving my full service broker. Using Scottrade especially streaming data like in Elite in a busy market is an experience in frustration. They have inadequate capacity planning for networks and servers.
Their web site is really really messed up. Especially when you want to place a crucial trade. The web site will not respond or will be down or be slow as molasses. I will not recommend this to any one. Scottrade trade sucks and I keep loosing money… worst customer support I have ever seen in the trading. I have been using Scottrade for about 6 months. Have been happy so far, trades have been executed promptly, and they were able to answer all my questions.
Unless something changes will stay with Scottrade. Apple computer users beware. I built up my account and qualified for their Scottrade Elite account, but when tried to download the software for this account, suddenly I notice that their Elite account software works on PC only. Frankly, that is a little deceptive.
It should be clearly stated that you need dollars in your account and a PC to qualify to use their Elite software, not discovered later. Also, their streaming quotes locks very often on my Apple computer because it is basically designed for PC and optimized for Internet Explorer. Also, going to their office to deposit money each time is lame.
Their on line service of depositing money online has been taken away. All of these issues can be corrected and a good company would do it fast. Let us see if Scottrade would do that. I doubt it. Sometimes the orders are executed excellently, other times, I see orders executed at my bid, however, my order is not executed.
Usually these anomalies occur with thinly traded securities. Bill, if the change in site is a problem for you what do you expect with a new broker? Do you think E-Trade will offer you the old Scottrade website? Things change, websites get updated, go with it or get left behind you dinosaur. When a brokerage firm sells you a mutual fund they are taking over the records keeping and tax reporting.
Fund companies used to reimburse brokerage firms for this service but fewer and fewer do so now. It is a business and in order to keep afloat Scottrade must pass the cost onto the customer. What do you expect when there is no quarterly fee or annual fee and a low commission cost? Buy that! Frequent traders and people who obsess about buying now this minute as some stock or another rises may want a different service. They have performed flawlessly as promised; all info accurate and timely.
Local branch perfectly cooperative and investor friendly. Though I wish, the spread would be a lot leaner. But they are prompt, and have provided plenty of features such as streaming quotes, IPO listing, gainskeeper, alerts, market research, etc. Great support. Fast trades. Good prices. Probably not a pick for options broker though. Never a problem. Intensely unhappy with the new Scottrade trading system. Immediacy is very important because I am dealing with mostly short puts and can loose a lot of money in a hurry.
So far, so good. Anyone else experience this? Scottrade is a no, even less than no, frills. They offer nothing and execute correctly. You want advice? Only a full service brokerage should be willing to provide full service.
Fortunately you get what you pay for at Scottrade. Caveat emptor. I see the comments stating that Scotttrade has cheap and fast service. If you trade occasionally, I can see how one might get this impression. My experience has been dramatically different and bad, in several areas: 1 Execution platform. Many mornings when I try to log on to the Scottrade servers they are either not working or after logging on they fail at the worst time, when the market opens. On limit orders of several thousand shares, shares would execute immediately at my bid, then the market would back the ask away from me and my order would sit there for minutes causing me to either bump my bid by several cents to get it off or go to a market order which would fill several cents against me.
Roger happens to be on the board of directors of Knight. This is because they sell their order stream to Knight and do not have a direct relationship to the market makers who must make them available. I have frequently been in the middle of a short trade and either cannot short more shares or am told that my short must be closed out because the shares are no longer available.
Bottom line. If you count on your trading to make you money regularly and want to pay a true discount fee with a broker that actually trades your shares with the exchange go somewhere else. My main complaint is that beginning January , they started charging fees with little if any notice to buy and sell many mutual funds that were previously free. This included many funds that I had previously purchased.
Even currently, more fund families are being dropped from their NTF system. Answer to Otto Vanburen — Nevada, USA Dec when he wrote: Spyware will make both your computer and internet access slow down more and more until both are barely functional- if at all. I have very good experience with this company. When cash is in the account at the end of the month, there is a small interest paid. When I request a check from them, it is mailed the next day and I get it the next.
My brokers want to charge high fees and argue with me about what I am buying. I even have IRA accounts with Scottrade. Scottrade killed me last week. When Google announced, initially it went to up to ! I lost a fortune. Gonna switch to Fidelity. They may be more expensive, but that one trade alone would have saved me thousands. The Scottrade Albany, NY offices have incredible service.
I am so impressed with Scottrade. I never had to wait longer then 60 seconds anytime I called the main Scottrade number anytime I had a question. I will stick with Scottrade for a long time to come. You get more for your money, just like their slogan says.
Great user interface, great customer service sent in application on a Friday, Scottrade rep called me first thing Monday then received info in mail by Wednesday, so got account up and running in a grand total of about 5 days. Of course they fill market orders fast, because they make money on the spread.
They are not good for active day traders because they do not fill orders on the buy price. They wait until your buy becomes the ask, and the prints are going off on the buy, then they can make the spread and only then will they fill your order.
I had 2 separate trading accounts. What can I say? Great trading platform with instant info on all your trades, positions, balances etc. Plus a local office which is very prompt and informative. If you know what you want….
Why pay more? Scottrade will take care of the rest. The rollover was efficiently done and the trades made have been handled accurately and at lightning speed. I would recommend this brokerage to any retired New York State employees who want to put their deferred comp funds to work to make some serious money.
When I get my balance up I will probably switch to a different broker. That will be a while An appealing part of Ameritrade is that you can take your money out within 3 business days. Perhaps you should have put it into a bank account before taking it across water. Even then you would have had to wait for the check to come in the mail. Trades are done at once. Only problem: Monthly statements are generally more than a week to post on the net. They have been extremely accurate and do not bug me.
Overall very happy with Scottrade though, upset with getting a corrected in late February, after already having filed with the IRS. Have met them in person and used many times and they are great. I wish they did. I am a bit distressed at the beginning of the year makeover of the Mutual Fund trading program. Scottrade has added charges both in and out of a number of previously NTF funds, without notice.
I was recently charged a fee to exit a fund I bought prior to the change, which, previously, was NTF. Fidelity is very good but if you trade a lot the fees can eat up your bankroll. I have experienced poor performance from local broker. Office did not withhold taxes as instructed and are dragging their feet in providing help to resolve the issue and provide a revised Not what I need at tax time.
Not bad at first but now if you email support they send back a form answer with no help at all. If the system breaks down forget it. No help at all. I emailed the CEO and got no answer. They do not care if you stay or leave. I have had market orders that have taken much longer than 1 minute to fill. I have also had limit oders for shares where the marketmakers have traded around them. Scottrade has been great so far. They have the lowest price, no inactivity fees and great customer service.
One word of advice- get Ad-aware and Spy-bot! These are spyware cleaners you can download and update for free. Spyware will make both your computer and internet access slow down more and more until both are barely functional- if at all. I opened a Scottrade account about 2 years ago. I have been very pleased. I would recommend Scottrade to anyone. Most times I, and I assume, most experienced investors, would prefer to deal with their brokerages on-line with a local contact to go sit down with for an hour or so when things get really f—— u-.
Even if you know more about investing than your local representative does. No problems with Ameritrade at all. Trades almost instant. Datek took stock out of my account and it took a complaint to the SEC to get it back that company is gone now. These seem to be the two lowest cost brokers. Others have fees etc. I use both Brownco and Scottrade. Both provide good technical support. Both require that you know what you are doing in the stock market. Very satisfied with both in their execution of trades.
The bid was 1. The execution came back immediately sold 6 at 1. The time difference between the execution is 1 second. I will never place a market order again. Market orders are filled instantly. Sometimes when it is real busy it takes the markets a while to get reported back. You got the price for the time you put the trade in.
Excellent customer service! I currently us Scottrade, however they do not reinvest dividends, how would that work if I buy Dog there? Plenty of local offices for assistance, low commissions on internet trades, and telephone assistance has been great.
Web site is excellent. The highest levels of the company are not responsive to serious issues and concerns. The compliance department was no help whatsoever. Additionally, the company retaliated to my SEC complaint! After 2 months of technical issues with the Elite Scottrade Platform I have closed my account today. I have lost several thousands of dollars in one day because the price of a particular stock that I shorted over and over within 2 hours was not a current price but the day before.
I called the manager in Walnut Creek California, and after a long conversation of telling him what had happened he could not care any less. He knew exactly that the price was not current and tried his best to get rid of me any way he could. They are there and fast when I need them.
They actually want to help me. Not pushy at all. Earned my trust. No recommendations from them though. I have tried to move cash out of the Scottrade account to an European account. Every other bank or broker would do it in 3 days max. No notice given on-line. My market order did not execute for 34 minutes. I subsequently was given two more numbers, one of which went through.
This was nearly one month ago. I have not heard back, neither to my phone call nor to my faxed letter. Not all of the US is in the same time zone. In California, trading starts at Attempting to establish an account for an investment club with a 65K portfolio was an exercise in frustration. Local office was a real advantage. Once everything drops will be no problem to connect. I have been with Scottrade since the end of October. The website is great, and the few times that I have spoke to my broker he has been very helpful.
Great job Scottrade. Satisfied with their service as they offer the ability to do it all myself online, and get telephone assistance occasionally if needed. I currently use Scottrade, however they do not reinvest dividends, how would that work if I buy Dogs there? I am leaving TD Waterhouse because of several reasons. First, their trades are far too expensive.
Finally, I wrote an email complaint letter and the response addressed me as Ms. My chief reason for leaving is price. I use Brown to sell puts to get a lower cost basis on stocks that I think are undervalued. Scottrade needs to start allowing clients to sell naked puts. Emailed complaints are answered with form letter responses and after hours trading seems to be farther and farther over the horizon. The problems seem to stem from poor technology implementation and overwhelming the systems with new subscribers before adequately architecting for the heavier load.
Trades have been executed quickly and efficiently every time. So far, so good! Speed of execution, courtesy. So far they have been a Great Company to to business with and I recommend them highly. Charts read inaccurate time and interval frame. Constant updating of their system. Many problems the past week. What a waist of time and money. Check out before you sign up. I opened a small starter account as a test. I love Scottrade. Great commissions and customer service. What puts them over the top is the fact that they have local branches in your area.
Granted they have small glitches but what brokerage out there can beat the low commissions with personal brokers in your area? At am? What does it matter if they are down at ? Know the market hours man. I transferred my account from TD Waterhouse due to poor and rude customer service. I now enjoy excellent and competent customer service. Trading is a breeze with the streaming display provided. Which online broker is better? These kinds of fees are common with DRIPs and often change over time.
But some Also, dividend reinvestment is not built into the TD Ameritrade platform.

April 1, Welcome Hi. Therefore, mutual fund trades generally settle in one day, while ETF trades commonly take three days.
Security issuers must follow a strict routine for paying dividends. First, the issuer declares a dividend. They specify the dates and dollar amounts of upcoming distributions. Actually, they specify three dates:. Record Date — Shareholders have to own the shares as of a particular date to receive the distribution.
This is the date on which the share price adjusts downward to account for the dividend payment. Payment Date — The date that the shareholders of record will receive the cash in their brokerage accounts. This must be at least one day after the record date, but sometimes stretches longer. It takes custodians and brokers a few days to verify the cash payments, resolve ownership and deliver certification.
ETF record dates are generally two days later than mutual-fund record dates. This means ETF payment dates come two days later than mutual fund payments. It gets worse:Issuers can sometimes extend this waiting period by adding days between the record date and the payment date. Check out the September dividend payment schedules for three top-yielding funds.
The record date was Sept. This is very helpful for busy clients. Other brokerages, such as Fidelity, leave ETF dividend reinvestment to their clients. Vanguard reinvests dividends on the payable date, on the opening. Etrade waits until it has confirmation that the cash has been deposited, which happens generally around 10 a. ET on the payment date. Schwab and TD Ameritrade wait until the following day, adding more price uncertainty. Scottrade pools dividend income and reinvests monthly or quarterly, executing at 2 p.
In a rising market, delays push the reinvestment price higher, so reinvestors buy fewer shares compared with what they could have gotten on the ex-date. Over the five years to Oct. On average, an eight-business-day delay would have translated to a 0. With average dividend yields at 2. The only way to reinvest ETF dividends is to buy shares on the open market. ETF traders must contend with spreads, premiums and discounts.
As of Oct. This means that an ETF buyer could expect to pay 0. If the midpoint turned out to be above intraday net asset value iNAV —meaning the fund traded at premium—investors could wind up with a much less efficient execution than what they would get in a comparable mutual fund, if such a thing existed. If you trust your DRIP order to a brokerage firm, you lose your ability to work your order, which is to say, to pay less than the posted asking price.
Vanguard and Scottrade simply use market orders—they pay the asking price. The market opening can be a bad time for market orders, because sometimes ETFs trade roughly at the opening. In total, shares traded during that four-minute window—a few odd lots, and a share block. IST went ex-dividend on Sept. Its closing NAV that day was On the Oct. Over the past three years, IST gained an average of 0. Next issue is spreads. IST has traded at a median spread of 0.
On an annual basis, this translates to 0. Premiums and discounts add risk. On Oct. After 10 a. Maybe Vanguard got lucky. Over the first half hour of trading in IST, when premiums and discounts are measurable, trades printed anywhere from a 0. Because ETF issuers do not have to keep shareholder records, ETF portfolio managers have no idea what share of distributions will come back to the fund.
Therefore, ETF portfolio managers have to make sure they have sufficient cash to distribute. This means they might have to sell some securities, possibly incurring tracking error, and definitely paying trading costs. Take a look at the table below, which shows the mean daily standard deviation for all nongeared equity ETFS, sorted by trailing month yields.
As yields rise, tracking error rises too. Mutual funds are really, truly better than ETFs for dividend reinvestment. ETFs offer greater variety of exposures, lower expense ratios, better index tracking, cheaper tax bills, daily transparency and better portfolio management than their mutual fund counterparts.

All rights reserved. Bloomberg -- Bitcoin and other digital currencies plunged Thursday, a slide likely to stoke speculation about the durability of the boom in cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin slumped as much as 8. Analysts said that profit-taking after the recent rally, and speculation about tighter regulations, were among the reasons for the shift lower. Crypto believers tout purchases by retail investors, institutions and even billionaires, as well as the search for a hedge against dollar weakness amid the pandemic, as reasons why the boom can last.
Some see signs of retail investors piling in to chase momentum for fast gains, storing up an inevitable reckoning. Concern about the possibility of tighter U. Just this week, Van Eck Associates Corp. There is also a buzz around Ethereum, the most-actively used blockchain in the world, which is set for a network upgrade that would allow it to process a similar number of transactions as Mastercard Inc.

Lately, some of these analysts have been tapping several apparent down-and-out equities as prime candidates for strong gains. Employers, insurance brokers, health plans, and retail partnerships all offer benefits to consumers of various stripes — and Benefitfocus offers a tech solution to make benefit administration easy. The company offers a software platform specifically designed to handle the HR and data aspects of benefits programs, from enrollment to management.
This niche can be a two-edged sword, however. In good times, with benefit programs swinging, everyone will want in — but in bad times, Benefitfocus has found itself unable to regain traction. At the same time, there were positive developments. Lincoln Financial Group and PayActive joined Benefitfocus as catalog suppliers, and the company held its first open enrollment with the University of Texas system.
These quarterly results came as Benefitfocus brought in new management. These are major moves, that portend a new outlook at the top.
