Whaaaat? A business using pressure tactics and trying to upsell? I'm so surprised and appalled! Lol! This is the most blown out of proportion thing I have heard in a while. Most businesses do this. I don't understand the why this is a story. If TD actually did something illegal, then that's a story. Employees pressured to meet sales quotas or numbers is pretty much standard.

Just FYI, apart from the random calls from the banks which I never answer, I've never been pressured or upsold anything at the branch.
Same here :) Once a few years ago I was told by the manager about all the perks we can get with our then high-ish balance in our TD account (free safety deposit box, free USD account linked to the main one, better currency conversion rates etc.) I asked him for a printout, brought it home, reviewed it with my husband, decided we don't need anything - and that was it :)

(But later moved some money to Zenbanx accounts where conversion rates are really better - and it also pays 1.5% interest on CAD and 1% on USD lol)

RBC teller once applied a credit card for me without my authorization. Visited a branch to open a savings account and after couple of weeks I received a credit card in the mail. I spent 20 minutes on the phone to cancel the card and the agent on phone kept explaining me why I should not cancel it.

After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!

one ugly day coming up, wow...

BAC down 4% on no news
corrections start when they are least expected. If this is what I think, it will keep going reaping bull's hearts. TD nearing 65... hehe

YM stopped near by third tranche @20658... ouch. I am playing YM for a bounce, nothing more

edit: they keep pressing down. a lot of volume and AD lines collapsing. Only shorts are buying, bulls stepped out in fear

Perhaps this is the start? Long overdue if it is.

bounce time. lets see how high it goes...

USD down, JPY getting strong - this is usually a flight to safety trade
Same with Bonds.
