Good old Thomas Peterffy bought his seat on the AMEX when he was 31 years old. He had two employees, a few dollars and a dream. Today, he is still there and the impressive fact is that he will answer your emails...actually, I sent two emails. One email was asking his age when he purchased the AMEX seat which he quickly replied back. The second email was when I was having a problem with my wire and I had exhausted my calls to customer service. I never received a reply from TP. Oh well. What can I do. . .
