I was wondering if anybody had any experience with MB trading with options? I could go on and on about how absolutely terrible their trading platform is. It's the absolute worst I've ever used. When I use it, I'm constantly thinking, isn't there anybody that tests this? I've somewhat gotten used to that. My main problem recently is that in the past week I have been assigned on 4 different short options. There was no dividends or anything involved. These were expirations more than a week out on highly traded ETF's. Pretty standard stuff. The problem is it's an IRA. First, I have to pay $5 to close the stock out instead of the usual $1 with options. Then my whole account has a negative debit for at least 3 days and I can't reopen the position. Last Friday, I had options expiring but because of the negative debit, I could only close them. I had protective puts going out to December on them so it was a simple calendar roll. I tried it on the platform but the software is a piece of junk, it was saying it was a debit transaction. I called the trade desk to see if they could just roll them. The guy said he couldn't because it was a debit transaction. I said no, it's a calendar spread, I'm just rolling it. The system is wrong, it should be about a 20 cent credit. He just didn't understand that. So I just closed it and said I would reopen it on Tuesday when the balance gets straightened out. Monday, I get assigned early on another option. OK I'll reopen Wednesday. Wednesday, get assigned on another option. This is what I get for trying to save 50 cents a trade over TOS.
