In Response to RE: Effective data mining for banks by richva1041
I would find that very frustrating, having to have money sitting in an account, when I had no idea if/when I'd next want to buy something! For example, say the global market caused a 300 pt drop on the market tomorrow, and at 2 PM Apple had dropped to $525 .. a "steal" these days. I'd want to be able to pick up the phone & place a trade to buy it, knowing I could drop a check at my broker's office on Tuesday morning.
But what if I had to transfer funds first, and by the time I called the broker an hour later, Apple had rebounded to almost $600 .. now my money is sitting in a brokerage account doing nothing, and I've got to move it back to another account?
