The main purpose of my blog is saving you some money, so it really hurts when something like this happens (in response to this post):
Can anybody explain to me why I got charged 130$ by E*Trade for removing part of the money put in AS100 a few days after the initial transaction?
Maybe I’ve missed something here, but this is certainly one of the worst tips I got so far.
Just so we are clear, here are the ground rules:
- I will try my best to provide accurate information in the blog posts. Please be aware that I do make mistakes and I am grateful to readers who point it out.
- I am not a financial advisor and I do not work in the financial services industry. I am an average person just like you and it is impossible for me to check information with all the different companies out there. So, please be sure to do your own research. If you find an error in any post, please leave a comment.
- My readers are extremely smart people, so be sure to check out the comments for any updated information. In the post referred to in the beginning, many commenters have pointed out that there are redemption fees and penalties charged by various discount brokers.
- I will not recommend any product or service that I haven’t tried out myself. I will also not recommend anything that I haven’t paid out of my own pocket.
- I will raffle any product sent to me (however small) to my readers. I am hoping that this principle would not obligate me to write a good review just because I received a free sample.
- I will not accept payment for any link or affiliate product unless it is explicitly labelled as “Sponsored” or “Advertisement”.
