This is a heads up on some of my past experiences with Trademaven. Trademaven had a total service meltdown for the last half of February and into early March of 2006. They blamed Transact and moved their accounts to Mann Financial. They didn't bother to send me an email saying they were moving my accounts. I found it out through the grapevine. After my accounts got to Mann my commission went from $3.80 a contract to $200.00 a contract. Trademaven did not have offer to set up daily email P/L's so I didn't find out for a week when the first statement arrived by mail. I called Trademaven to get it fixed but it didn't happen so I called Mann myself and got it fixed 2 days later. I then had to call Trademaven again to tell them that they were still charging 32% more commissions than was agreed. That time they called Mann to fix it. When you talk to them it seems like they could care less on the adminstrative end. The next suprise was that I starting getting someone else's statements in the mail. I called Trademaven again and got the blah, blah blah, we will take care of it. 2 more weeks go by and I'm still getting this guy's statements so I track the right person down at one of Mann Financial's many offices and got it squared away. The biggest bitch with Trademaven was when they switched to Mann Financial the margin went from $500.00 to $2000.00 per contract and again they did not send out a notice to let me know that fact. I have been trading for a long time and I have to say hands down that Trademaven is the worst brokerage I have EVER dealt with. Technical support was generally fine but the rest of the company was pathetic. I had finally had it and went to another broker and have had much better results. If you are looking for a broker or trading platform I would in no way recommend them based on my experience.
