4 Questions Answered

Q. Is it illegal for me to give a friend my login credentials for my brokerage account and have him trade for me?
A: Sam is a 100% correct. You should review your brokerage account agreement.
Q. Can a broker (Charles Schwab) randomly closed my broker account.
A: This is a major problem. You may need to think about hiring counsel to deal directly with Schwab, especially if you have open options positions.
Q. Edward Jones has placed a 10 day hold on a very large cash amount that I deposited in a portfolio account.
A: It depends on what your customer agreement states. Most firms have broad discretion to hold onto funds if there are AML issues. You may want to be very active with your broker to find out what is happening.
