  1. Need to register. Otherwise, can't read the article.
  2. Been a bad run for the brokerage industry , ain't it?

    Makes Vegas look viva.
  3. Just go to Google News and search on "thinkorswim options losses".

    It is the first story and free to read.

    $8mm is peanuts to TDA. This will be settled uneventfully.

    Hi all, newbie here.

    I am thinking of opening an account with ThinkorSwim.

    I presume they would also participate in the practice of Hypothentication (just like MF Global and Interactive Brokers)?

    Also could they hypothenticate away my funds/holdings only if I pledged my stock as part of a margin account?

    I'm thinking ThinkorSwim is "safer" than a lot of brokers, given that they have an AA- rated parent in TD bank standing behind them.
