not true, either of those,

they are up and running, and no they weren't bought out,

they just bought out Scottrade and absorbed those accts.

edited per #48 being correct, they are in the process of being bought out also

Schwab is in the process of buying them but their offices are still open. One thing fir sure Schwab should have waited till this past week to buy...it is a lot cheaper.

Yep. TD Ameritrade ate up Scottrade and then they got gobbled up by Schwab.

which reminds me of when the banks were merging with 'other' banks... they called it a successful merger when in reality they were absorbing failed banks.

"Merge" sounds so much better than "failing"...

FYI Curtman asked me to tell the board his texting ability (he's using his phone) is compromised.

His living situation isn't the best (on a boat) and the cancer meds are messing with him.

How do you get to the old platform in and out of sink and swim seems to some things have changed on the platform and it's not as easy to navigate until I get past his learning curve.

you do not go from one to the other, you choose one or the other
