Re: Selling Vanguard MMF and Accrued Interest

Thanks livesoft and retired@50 for the replies. The 100% sale seems to have been selected. It caused the settlement fund to be overdrawn by $Y. There is no explanation of how this works and the phone representatives have no insight either. I understand how it works no and will always use dollar amou...

Re: [Vanguard price glitches, incorrect market info for August 12, 2019]
