I like owning cars with cash to keep my monthly payments low. If you put it into a rental property, you will lower the payment a little bit but you should also have rental income to cover that payment. So, my suggestion use the $10,000 to pay for the car.
The act of transferring balances should not, but opening and closing account could if you are closing an account with a longer credit history than the one you keep open. Length of credit history with an account counts along with available credit. But also remember, Credit score is not a measure of wealth, it only tells if you are paying your bills.
Your on the right track. Any dollars that were invested are part of the basis, including dividends and capital gains. They would have been reported as taxable income in the year they paid out. The only part that may be tricky is the annual custodian fee. Each year that it was paid you presumably paid taxes on the sale of shares in those years for the fee. So those share are not owned and the liquidation of the account should take that into effect. Good luck.
There is a difference between allowed by the rules and allowed by the market. As for the rules check out the SEC website for ownership over 5% as well as talk with the companies investor relations to see if they have rules on concentrated ownership by one investor. As for allowed by the market, good luck when large (relative to the company) trades come through interesting things happen to prices. Once the trades are complete the trade price can also drop out from underneath the new investor.
There are many reasons this could happen.
1. The specialist took the other order first to match a corresponding order
2. The other order was on a different exchange or an internal cross that was reported to the tape
3. The other order actually happend before yours but there was a delay in reporting the trade for some reason.
