The market was on fire today but my portfolio still managed to lose groud, falling by about 0.1 percent. When I checked my Ameritrade account after the close, it showed that I was up over $2000, but when I entered the new portfolio value in my spreadsheet, I was actually down for the day. This seems to happen often with Ameritrade. I wish they would fix that software glitch. Not that Ameritrade is any better than Scottrade, which is the other broker that I use. I am now getting trade alerts for things that happened in ..... December. Very helpful.
