Scottrade went down last hour of trading...

DId anyone else experience  that denial of service  attack against Scottrade..


funny and sad how when there are big swings in the markets they go down ???


isn't  seven dollars enough to keep them safe  from hacking attacks and denials of service


I hate that whenever I call they always  play it off until they can't, when I first called they were like nope our system is good... until   I contacted some higher ups...  omg...

 why even advertise when  such an attack and idiotic service  makes them look bad..



anyone else have an account with them  as  a broker ???

Scottrade has an office a few blocks from my house, so I gave them a call. Glad I asked questions before I opened an account. They do not offer dividend reinvestment at all, and they stated they would physically mail you any dividend received as a check twice a month, literally sitting on your money for a few weeks depending on when your dividend was paid. Definite deal breakers for me.

they simply credit your cash balance with any dividends received... although compared to some other brokers they may be a day or  two or three later  than they should...

my issue is with  their dependability when  things go bad or good in the market...

I'm not too happy with how they responded...
