Complaint / review text:
The Scottrade Elite active trader platform has many glitches and flaws in it. Many technical difficulties plague this system. I get the worst possible execution on trades compared to my active trader accounts with TD Ameritrade and Fidelity. I have filed hundreds of complaints, with Scottrade's admission to the problems, but they refused to offer fixes for them. My local Scottrade branch has demonstrated itself with an utter failure in offering any help. My accounts with Fidelity and TD Ameritrade have never encountered a problem, not even once! One should seriously consider another online broker other than Scottrade. Scottrade will rob you and they just don't care. Good luck if you choose Scottrade as an online broker. Really, good luck —you will need it!
