DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH SCOTTRADE. They have a scam running. Everything seems nice until you try to get your money out of the account. I sold some stock and requested a check. After two weeks of not getting my check that I requested, I called and asked them to cancel the check and resend it, this costs $$$ but I needed the money badly so I paid, again it never showed up. I ended up requesting it be wired to my account, which cost more $$$. In the end I realize that the exact same thing happenned to one of my colleague's that had done business with them. I will not recommend Scottrade to the worst of my enemies, please do not do business with them.
