Re: Credit limit above 100k is it possible?

I would first contact Merrill and see if it is a good fit for you

This.  I wouldn't recommend a change in brokerage firms either solely based upon a few postings I read on a message board.

 

If you're interested in going down this path you might want to see if there is a local BoA branch that either has a full time on-prem Merrill Financial Advisor or can schedule an in-branch appointment with a roaming FA.

Honestly, take this a step further/back depending on how you look at it and talk to your own accountant/FA on this with the kind of wealth being talked about here. I cannot even imagine them supporting a decision like this without talking to them first about it.

Same situation here. Some of us are wondering what the upper bound is for credit limits. Understanding some of the possibilities is part of our growth in understanding the credit world.

 

I know I am learning from this thread.

Re: Credit limit above 100k is it possible?

My BofA Premium card has 120k limit and my BofA travel Rewards business is 58k. I do use both cards heavily each month. I spend anywhere between 130k-180k on both cards which include personal and business expenses. Always pay in full. I also have request limit increase for my premium card. I was worried to press the button and don't want to poke around. I see your statement closed at 71k balance and here I'm worried about leaving a high balance. I pay most of it off before closing statement. I usually leave 6k on my premium card and 20k on my business card. You never had any problems with BofA keeping those high balances?

It is possible for an investor to have a good enough understanding of the markets to be self-directed in investments. I count myself as one of those. The location where the stocks / investments are held, in a self-directed situation, does not depend on an accountant or finanicial advisor. Most people do need that, but if OP feels that a change of some stocks / funds from one broker to another is appropriate, we aren't here to judge that.

 

Given the implied value of those investments, I'd not worry too much about the OP's ability to make financial choices.

OP literally typed  Ok. I will try to transfer E-trade stocks to ML.  50 min after suggestion was made.  Takes me longer to decide what to eat for breakfast. 

 

That's not self directed, that's taking one opinion and running with it.  

I am fairly certain your decision process would not be that lax.

You are probably one of the few that is learning from this. Most won't be able to apply this for themselves at all with the type of money being thrown around here. I agree sharing information is great but this won't help a lot of people except the true 1%.

There's nothing wrong with reporting a high balance as long as they show they can pay it off and based on the $78k payment on the second card I do not believe that to be an issue here.
