E-Trade Denying Users Login Access 30 Minutes Ahead Of Fed Minutes

Tyler Durden's picture

It appears that E-Trade has some log-in issues with its website, since for the past 15 minutes anyone who tries to log into their account, gets the following error screen.

As of this posting, it is unclear if the access denied this is a bug, a hack, or simply a test of the emergency preparedness system for when everyone tries to log in to sell... and just can't log in.

Whatever the reason, being unable to log into one of the widest used discount brokers 30 minutes ahead of the most important news event of the day is hardly good marketing.

Finally, there is always the possibility that this is merely a grand rehearsal for the release of Obama*Trade.
