    UVXY - has anyone had trouble trading "pre-split" shares of this today? B/D says it will not allow me to trade shares I bought on Tuesday.

    • Navigator: I don't recall ever being frozen out of trading a position until settlement before now. Maybe I just never had unsettled shares split?

    • sstonerm3: I see the pre split shares, but no ticker to trade. No price or cost basis updates either. I use Schwab.

    • Navigator: I tried. TDA says they will not trade until settlement. I was very forceful, but they stood their ground. Wonder if I need my lawyer?
