On Wall Stree lies..............

When will the public ever wake up? The Wall Street whores are at work, every day.

Asset rebalancing, layers of fees on top of fees, modern portfolio theory, blah, blah, blah.

As an arbitrator for both the New York Stock Exchange and the NASD my fear of the brokerage community continues to grow. It is still a wonder why investors hire non-fiduciary salesman for a successful retirement.

Wall Street cares only about their income, not the clients outcome. Do you really think the big houses pass out titles because some salesman made a client big money or took care of a widow? Not a chance. They award titles because massive amounts of fees and commissions are generated. That is what allows the brokers to keep their seats.

Call it "twirling" or "position velocity" or "making the book sing"........it all comes out of the little guys pocket. Brokers call it "GROSS" as in gross commissions generated.
