Meaning I am now restricted....is there any way to "bypass" the stupid restriction(s)? Would it be better to open the 2nd cash only account within etrade and transfer half of the money from the "margin" account and into the cash only account? Or would it be better if I have 2 brokers (Etrade and Fidelity)?
