This is a comment about a proposed rule. The current regulations require that the price given to an investor must be the "best price" available to the broker. There is a proposed rule change to drop this requirement (I have no idea what the rule change number is).

I am COMPLETELY against this. This is just another way for brokers to steer away from giving their clients good service. It may start out as just $0.03 per share in the beginning, but, sure as the sun comes up, this will soon oscillate to $0.10 then $0.50 then $1.50 and will start include "reasons" for "fees" and it will never end. Stop this NOW!

Thanks you for listening,
