1979 and is one of the original discount brokers.
Pros: None I can think of
Cons: Worst company I ever dealt with
Anyone who trades stocks should stay away from this company. Worst online broker I have ever dealt with. Fees for everything imaginable without written notice, liquidation of dividend stocks written off as worthless, horrible customer service that can barely wait to hang up on you, sell orders take forever to fill, rate hikes and new fees yearly, etc,etc,etc.
This is one of the worst companies I've ever dealt with! Hit me with three fees in a row on THE SAME DAY for paper mail of statements because they changed their policy, without phoning or emailing or sending me a letter to let me know, then refuse to take the charge off. The kicker though is that I went to make a trade and noticed a bogus $60 charge for inactivity, again with no warning or prior notification that it was coming up or about to be charged to my account. They refuse to reserve it and threatened to liquidate my stocks to pay for it if not paid in less than two weeks, in an email with grammatical spelling errors. This company is a joke, penny pinchers, and they don't care one bit about customers or customer service. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU!
