Stock brokers have a duty to make suitable recommendations to investors, after taking into account the age, health, level of financial sophistication and liquid net worth of the individual.
If you have suffered losses in your brokerage account you may be able to recover some or all of those losses through FINRA arbitration, a process that is much more expeditious and less costly than court litigation.
