The change to charge for market data is wrong. This should be public information. The SEC is doing a very poor job in looking out for the best interest of the general public and the health of the markets.
If you want a really good example go look at the silver manipulation that the SEC is allowing. This is criminal without a doubt.
The SEC has no crediability and your current actions are adding to the distrust the public has. The insiders in the market and their companys are already making way too much money - riping off the public where us little guys have not a chance to get a fair deal.
A very dissatisfied citizen and investor,
