Ok, thanks for the update, but the bottom line is they reduced all of your accounts to 2.95 per trade. I sometimes wonder how they decided on who got the lower commissions. Years ago I tried to get a lower commission from them and they refused so I left a small amount with them and went to Choice and Ameritrade. Then somehow I was talking to another rep there one day who told me that if it were him who I had requested the lower fees he would have obliged. He convinced me for whatever price back then to come back and I had everything transferred from Choice. Then recently - maybe within the past year - I tried to get it lowered again and all they did for me was lower it .45. Then I hear stories like yours where you were paying 1.50 less per trade and not even doing as much trades. And the fact that they can go commission free tells you that they make money off of you in more than commission fees. Unfair practices to say the least!
