Hey everyone. 1st post here, long time lurker.
I'm in a bit of a battle with TD Ameritrade regarding their unethical behavior after I exposed a glitch in their charting software that falsely adjusts volume bars so each day's volume looks massive compared to the recent past.
They have shown extreme arrogance by brushing this issue aside, even after I implied that it could be considered market manipulation since investors are being induced to trade on falsely magnified volume. At very best it is extremely unethical on their part to let this "glitch" continue.
I wrote a post about it here if you guys want more details
If you find this to be as outrageous as I do, and they're your broker, then make sure to give them a call, an email or a tweet so they can know that investors won't stand for this nonsense.
But most of all, watch out! These guys (all brokers) are out to get the small investor, no matter how much they want us to think they've changed since the financial crisis. It's always great to have a reminder that a healthy dose of skepticism is necessary to be a prudent investor/trader.
