    Is any body else having trouble logging on to E*Trade to see how much my portfolio has lost this morning? :confused:

    As it's getting very frustrating not know what the heck is going on!:mad:

    I checked around 5.30 and access was fine (market was in "adjust" whatever that means)

    Unless you have a margin loan I suggest you don't look at it.

    Cheers

    I couldn't access etrade until lunchtime. Not happy as I missed picking up a few bargains. Lesson learned, and next time I'll have my orders placed pre-market :)

    I do have a margin loan so wanted to see whether I needed to lump some more cash in before I got the phone call.

    I also was able to access the market again from around lunch time, but it has started me thinking whether the discount internet broker model is the one to use in these turbulent times...
