What's Up with E*Trade?

They still haven't posted my July statements yet! Ok, it's not like this makes a huge impact on my life, or even on my net worth, but I just want to click "done" on that Palm Pilot reminder saying "print out investment statements!"
Of my various accounts, E*Trade is always the least reliable about statements. Sometimes they just skip a month without saying why. Doesn't that seem really weird?

It seems irresponsible to me. Never have that problem with TDAmeritrade.com. Check out their services.

Only problem with Ameritrade is their site can go down completely just when you want to trade...

Hi Madame X. I used to work at ET and caught your blog when I was there. I didn't tell anyone that you were posting our stock charts on your site ;-)

To answer your question, ET won't post a statement unless you have at least $10 in activity in that month. Activity is defined to be interest payments, dividends, buying/selling stocks over $10, depositing/withdrawing, etc. If it's more than $10, you'll have a statement, if not you'll get one at the end of the calendar quarter, or the next month if there's at least that much in activity.
