I have a high suspicion that long ago the CRUZ bros.
were toking on a nice fat doobie and had a brainstorm:

"Now that we've suckered a mass of consumers into
buying TS, let's stop supporting it and let's create a
web only version with heavy pressure for them to use
OUR BROKERAGE.  Then, we can check by computers which
trader(s) have the highest profitability on their
trading, and we can invest all our money along their
trades . . . we'll make billions !!!!"
