I have an account at Corner Trader. I like their web trading interface (not that it matters, I used it twice so far…). However, sometimes I worry that they are unprofessional, low-scale. If you want to contact support, you write an e-mail and then it’s always the same people responding.
Moreover, I have been begging them for two factor authentication for months. Nowadays a single password is just not enough, especially when it comes to your life savings! Finally, they have implemented this Symantec VIP Security app. You pair your CT account with the app credential, and each time you login, you need to provide a code from the app in your smartphone.
The problem is, before you enter the code, you can just change the credential and authenticate yourself with another app. It makes me really anxious. CT is the cheapest Swiss broker and I would be happy to stick with them, but some evenings I have these thoughts that all my assets just evaporate and there will be no trace of them. Or someone breaks in and makes some harmful transactions and drives my portfolio to the ground. What are your thoughts on keeping 90% of your wealth in digital form?
