i currently day trade as much as 500 round turn trades per year through charles schwab brokerage,, i understand that some of the free quotes i now receive will have a pass through fee through my broker ,, i do believe any free market where publicly traded securities are traded should have as much market knowledge as possible to equal the playing field ,, any fee imposed would be to that detriment... thank you ,, michael loiudice
