E Trade Steals From Children and Lies to the Public
In 2003 I opened an E Trade custodial account for my 11 year old god son, giving him $300. He was interested in stocks so we read and planned and finally bought JDSU. It turned out to be a bad investment but that's my fault. The E Trade custodial account did not have any fees associated with it.

The boy's family moved away, and his dad, a Special Forces soldier, was frequently out of the country during 3 tours in Afghanistan and several trips to Iraq. So neither his dad nor I monitored the account. In 2005, unbeknown to us, E Trade changed the rules and decided to charge quarterly fees on custodial accounts. They charged enough fees in a year to wipe out the account value, sold the JDSU shares to recover their fees, and closed the account.

In the past week I visited the family and discovered E Trade's theft. I asked the boy to see whatever paperwork he had on the account and discovered that E Trade had stolen his funds. I called them and said your advertisements say no account fees, and when I set up the account I was told there were no account fees. E Trade told me the decided to charge account fees in 2005 and 2006 but then eliminated them again. Apparently they change the rules as needed so that they can steal from children and lie to the public.

DO NOT USE E Trade.

guess who pays for baby commercials?
Etrade

Way, way, way too expensive. Go to Sogotrade. Other than that, perfectly fine. Nice feature being able to trade in worldwide markets in local currency… although it just makes you pay an exchange rate rake and more commissions. They offer free research, which is nice. 24/7 support. Everything's fine, except the cost. Why pay more?

Pros: good s/w for real-time news and other features

Cons: commissions not cheapest, poor executions, not the best fortress balance sheet to say the least, poor short borrow, poor margin rates

Gay Gay Gay...Snakes In The Grass!!!
These guys will nickel and dime the heck out of you. They have shady marketing practices too where the "fine print" is...well not there, you have to do a lot of digging to find out that there are hidden fees and that there "promotions" have catches.

Oh and this is a direct quote from them "we don't close accounts." What the F is that?? Shady Shady Shady...and Gay!

Avoid at ALL COSTS
Etrade has the WORST WORST WORST fills by far they sit on the offer and try to fill it on the offer before hitting the bid. What happens if you just want out? They try to scalp your order which is CRAP! Out right scammers. They may be OK for Nasdaq anything else forget about it. Also WORST borrows

Horrible Service!
Wow, these guys suck bigtime. From customer service to executions...some of my orders for penny stocks would sit 4-5 minutes w/ no fill - while I watched them explode w/ out me.

Customer Service? Don't even get me started. I wanted to strangle a couple of those guys through the phone. Seriously, if you're gonna service us, at least speak fluent English. Possibly the most unhelpful group of numbnuts I've ever dealt with. Yeah yeah, I know etrade would rather pay someone in a third world country .37 an hour than tp employ our own here in the United States...but that's what it all boils down to for me. Customer Service. I gave their platform a 1, because it seems at least they tried.

ETRADE lacks customization features.

I CAN recommend TDAmeritrade and ThinkOrSwim though. Two of the best in customer service, from my experience.

Also, when TDA screws up they credit you generously w/ free trades, etrade laughs in your face.

'sorrie zir, we cnot do anyting to asssitst u'

%$%$ you etrade!

Just plain bad
Got my account restricted because I signed in from another computer!! They don't have security question when signing in from a diferent PC!! Because they don't require you to send any paperwork when you open your account online, now I have to send all documentation, along with a letter asking to get it activated... account number, signature, login name...this happened yesterday, I sent everything right away through fax. Put my number asking them to call back ASAP, heard nothing throughout the day, so I decided to call, said they hadn't received it yet. Sent it again, and right now this morning, there's this message.."We received your fax. Unfortunately the document you faxed is insufficient. Please contact us for alternatives."

Oh man, oh man... this is infuriating!!!
