I've found the chat sessions get results, at least for me. Had no BP the other day and they fixed it within 3 minutes via chat. Then an account I trade for a friend didn't show up the other day linked to my accounts and it took maybe 10 minutes to get it fixed thru chat.

Okay thanks, should try that. I'm now having problems getting the right commissions applied.

I'm afraid I've had it with MBT/Penson. They are still applying the wrong commissions - MBTX instead of MBTR. They have fixed one out of the 3 erroneous commissions from last week, but did it again yesterday. They are too error prone for my comfort.

How has MB trading been recently. Thinking of reactivating.
Thanks

I've been waiting for them to straighten out a problem with one of my accounts for a week. If that tells you anything.

Thanks, Ron, I'm afraid it does.
I sent an ACH transfer on Friday which shows as "approved", but does not show up in the account itself. And the account info on the Penson site still gives Friday's info. I notified some one on Chat but had to cut off when I was called away.
Do you have a favorite trading broker these days? I looked at IB, but its procedures appear cumbersome.
Thanks again

I still have an IRA account with MBT but seldom trade it. TradeStation is my primary platform. Has been for several years now.

Thanks, Ron. The information black hole yesterday has made me rethink the wisdom of reopening the MBT account.

I am once again going to call MBT this afternoon and see where they are with the problem. I am betting they will have no clue and 'will get back to me.'

Thanks for the info re TradeStation. I've always heard good things about it. I wish they took ACH deposits - couple of mouse clicks and it's done. Wire transfers mean going to the bank.
