Frequently, too often to be chance, as soon as I get into a stock it'll tank -- vertical -- and a disproportiate amt of the time as soon as I sell a stock it'll climb ... right after I sell it. I know I should sell sooner or buy back in but I don't, like the amatuer that I am. Thats not what I'm asking. What I'm really asking -- and I know this sounds out of left field but, in your experience, is it possible a brokerage can target someones account -- somehow--, recognizing they're a rank amateur with a sizable account? I've called support on other issues and no doubt it was obvious I was possible meat, I'm meat to everyone here for that matter ...everyone is everyone elses meat but I regress, back to the question. Thanks in advance.
