    Wedbush has somewhat of an unsavory reputation on this site. They gave a guy only 48 hours to move his account for no urgent reason. See this:

    Why would you choose to move your business to this place?

    Also, I don't see Wedbush, Merrill Lynch Professional, Lightspeed, or you listed on the Sponsor list on the bottom of the page.

    Anyway, it's good to see you back, Robert.
  3. Love your platform. It earns it's own business! :thumbsup:

    I've met a few people on this site who use lightspeed and gave good reports about it so I have a good opinion about it.

    I got the impression from that thread that although the guy cleared through Wedbush, it was his introducing broker who asked him to close his account.

    You did not read the thread.

    In that case, welcome "back", Robert. :cool:

    Many of us benefit from the information and perspectives you impart, here (and are really grateful for how you do so without ever being at all "spammy" as some sponsors can be. ;) )

    Wishing you well, in your new situation, too.

  9. With Bob on board, I hope we can now hear Wedbush's side of the story!

    Just went back and re-read the whole thread. The poster seems to believe the requested liquidation came from Wedbush, but I don't think that is necessarily the case. DDT, the introducing broker is in charge of dealing with the client. They are guaranteeing his account at Wedbush and it seems more likely they were the ones who weren't comfortable with his account. Generally the customer only deals with the introducing broker, who works as a conduit with the clearing firm.

    Not sure if Bob can comment on an individual case, but maybe he can speak generally about how an introducing broker works with Wedbush and if it is likely that Wedbush was talking directly to a client.
