I hope the SEC will protect the individual investor by canceling this fee. There is already difficulty for the individual investor in getting transparency about the market.There seems to be no sense of responsibility on the part of most public or private corporations for the general welfare of others. Please give voice to our concerns since we often feel unheard in the present climate in our country. Rebecca R. Holt
