Glad to hear that butting in is not scorned.

I've been with DLJ for about 5 years (something like that). I don't trade frequently and I have another account at E trade, (boy there's a sorry story).
But, E trade allows a "buy/sell all or none' option when trading. I was sure that DLJ did also but didn't see it the other day. Wouldn't bother me but the other day before that I guided my wife over the phone to buy 4K shares of a stock and she said that option was not on the screen. Given the high volume the stock was trading I figured, no biggy.

Whoa! I got the confirmation in the mail and my trade was filled in five different amounts. Cost me $86 or so. I'm not a happy camper.
Calling them to find out why is an investment in time I am loath to make, I grow old waiting to speak to someone and Email is not much better in terms of substance.

BTW , E trade was listed in the Barrons article two weeks ago. They quoted burn rates for dot coms. Wonder how long they will be around?
Well to be fair they appeared to be at the safe end of the list, maybe 2+ years before the cash runs out (if I remember correctly).

thanks for the indulgence, I just had to whine.
