Re: How many are switching from Fidelity?

E-Trade Sold VUSXX @ $0.99998

I think E-Trade is doing something shady. I sold 100,000.00 units of VUSXX today and proceeds are only $99,998.00. In transaction details commission is shown as 0.00 as expected.

Re: The Final, Definitive Thread on Brokerage Transfer Bonuses

New bonus alert. $200 for 25k at Chase You Invest. I'm thinking transferring 25K and buying 13-week Treasury Bills to fulfill 90 days requirement. Brokerage account transfer fee (even partial) is $75. I'd like to avoid that. I don't see any fees if cash is transferred out and account closed. Their ...
