  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

As I think about it more, it is making perfect sense to keep the fund with IB in Canada. It probably is a good idea to bite the bullet for data cost considering the risk and cost.

The US brokers does not care much about customer services or customer authorization. It happens to me twice - first with Mirus and now with NinjaBrokerage.

Mirus never directly advised me about their problem upfront and they frozen my account and transferred my data feed to Continuum and then the whole account to Ninjabrokerage. All was kind of done after the fact.

Now NinjaBrokerage closed my account without telling me beforehand. I am very much fed up with US brokerage. I have totally lost more trust with these US brokerage.

I was stupid to be fooled twice. Not any more.

@wipca201, thanks for pointing this out. I just found out from my statement as well that my account was closed. No communication of any sort. It would've been nice to know this in advance as I would simply have transferred those funds to another account rather than getting the cheque and having to go through that whole process. Pretty disappointed with the whole Mirus/Continuum/Ninja debacle as well. Although I have a lot of time and money invested in Ninja for me it's now time to start looking at other alternatives, I've had enough. Who knows, this may lead me to a more robust and stable platform and people who actually care about all their customers.
