10:07 am: Looks like Scottrade systems are down and refusing to let me login. Calling them results in some message about unusually high call volume and both local and national lines are busy. So everybody seems to be calling to complain.
Update 10:17: Scottrade really is down – http://twitter.com/Scottrade – “We apologize for the inconvenience. We are aware of the issue, at this time please call us to place trades. 800-619-7283 ^AT”. However calling is of no use because the national lines are down and there is no concept of hold at Scottrade. The system just hangs up on you and says call back later.
