Yes, you are allowed to restrict trading in specific securities that you do not wish to own or trade.
Please be aware that if you block a security that is included in the strategy recommended to you, this can affect MFWM’s ability to achieve your desired investing outcome. If a significant portion of your account is restricted, we may cease managing it until you remove the restrictions on those securities.
If you place a new restriction on a stock currently held in your account, we will neither buy more nor sell it, even if the portfolio managers sell it from the strategy.
We strongly discourage clients from transferring restricted securities into their Personal Portfolio account(s). Among other reasons, our asset-based fee will continue to accrue and be payable with respect to securities you restrict in your Personal Portfolio.
