Market data should be treated as a public good that should be widely available and affordable to ensure market transparency and create a level playing field among all traders and investors—not just institutions and professionals. Please don't let Corporate America ruin America any more than it already has. Everything is so bottom line and greedy. I'm a little guy - a small individual investor. Charging for quotes is so wrong. If they're going to charge for quotes, then the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer.
