I'm curious as to why APEX just sent me a letter, giving terms as to how secure my accounts and data were. I have no accounts outside of Interactive Brokers -- a DMA, remember. Now, back ~2006, I went from ETrade to OptionsExpress and a 401k sent over to upstart TradeKing. My suspicions are that • my personal data are not so secure as APEX would have me believe, and that • one of ETrade, OptionsExpress, or TradeKing are still keeping my account number/data active, despite expressed statements to the contrary. Oh! and • that some materially-sized subset of ET members has received a similar letter -- whether for live or dead accounts. Any help? Who was your introducing broker to APEX?
