E*Trade - Free trades on Wednesday, December 19th

E*Trade Financial has declared Wednesday, December 19, 2007 to be E*TRADE Customer Appreciation Day, and to mark the occasion will be offering free COMMISSION-FREE stock, options and futures trading:

As you know, the past few months have been challenging for the financial services industry.

However, there is some good news. E*TRADE FINANCIAL Corp. has recently received a $2.5 billion capital infusion from one of the world's leading investment firms. This is a clear vote of confidence, solidifying the ability to deliver the value you have come to enjoy—today and into the future.

To celebrate this strategic transaction and thank you for your continuing loyalty, we are declaring Wednesday, December 19, 2007, as E*TRADE Customer Appreciation Day.

For a full 24 hours eligible stock, options and futures trades entered at E*TRADE Securities will not be charged a commission.¹ We hope this gives you a convenient chance to evaluate your investments, balance your taxable gains and losses, or capitalize on trading opportunities prior to year end.

At E*TRADE, nothing is more important to us than our customers. We thank you for your ongoing faith in us, and look forward to serving you for many years to come.


Jarrett Lilien
Chief Executive Officer
E*TRADE Securities LLC

So it's looking like next Wednesday may be a good time for E*Trade customers to do some tax-loss harvesting or add to their portfolios. I wonder if the iShares TIPS ETF (TIP) will get some love based on the November CPI numbers??
