An ID theft news on CNN brought attention to me. http://www.cnn.com/2002/LAW/11/25/ID.theft/index.html I have been annoyed by the fact there is no effective protections on our money in brokerage firms. Forget about SIPC. They only bail out the customers in very few circumstances. And all customer agreements are against the customers which is basically saying it's the responsibilities of the customer to secure their funds. How ridiculous! And NASD/SEC hypocritically creates PDT rules to protect brokers rather than customers. There is no law to force brokers to take security issues seriously and responsible. What a .... forget about my $25K with YOU, kiddy. Besides, there is no interest. How may I be supposed to risk $25K just for day trading. Forget it.
