Gosh! There’s gambling going on here.

“Brokers Able to Hide Some Disputes.”  Wall Street Journal, October 17, 2013 C1 http://on.wsj.com/19UwIIu “Arbitrators approved removal requests in more than 90% of the 629 cases that settled.”  The broker, and not the client, requested the removal, I assume.

So, is your broker’s history squeaky clean or squeegeed clean?

Is other information you rely on to make decisions accurate and complete?  How good are the decisions based on that information likely to be?  Where’s Angie’s list when you need it? The BrokerCheck data base seems a bit flawed.
