Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your question. Did the firm have you complete an application regarding your investment experience.
This is a link to open a E*TRADE accounting. If you look at page 4 item 6 (3rd paragraph) it talks about the risks associated with investing and the possible loss of principal. Did you complete an application like this when you opened an account?
