I'd dig a little deeper to find out what the reason is. Generally, you need to provide the checking account number and routing number, then verify the account somehow, often by confirming deposits made into the account, which can take a couple days to post.

We missed out on the real opportunity last March when the whole market was 1/3rd off.

You've named the winners so far. Plenty of stock loses most or all value in shorter timeframes. The hedge against that is diversification.

As I pointed out, buying stock doesn't support a company post-IPO, because it becomes a shell game afterwards with investors projecting their valuation of the future prospects of the company. Buying stock doesn't put more money towards that company or product after the initial sale (initial public offering).
