We love hearing your comments, opinions, and questions. A few simple ground rules for posts: Nothing threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, or other material that would violate the law. In other words, play nice. We all benefit when posts are relevant, on topic, and respectful of everyone involved. Posts that don’t follow these rules may be removed.  Please avoid investment specifics in your comments, please avoid advocating for or against specific securities or investments, and stay away from discussions about investment advice or trading strategies.

We take our customers' security very seriously. Because of that, we do not respond to any questions that pertain to a specific individual, account, or financial issue. If you have those questions about your own personal account or financial issue, we will point you in the direction of a licensed representative who can help.
