Default Re: Etrade Potential Bankruptcy?

What's the big deal about Friday? Earnings?

If you're taling about the FASB rule, don't expect any new writedowns until the next earnings. Etrade has been writing down their portfolio for the last few months already, unlike some of the mega-banks.

If you want to open an options account in order to put on a November straddle, I don't think you'll have time. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Ironically, ETrade has one of the best options platforms among discount brokers.
