"AFAIK, brokers don't charge odd-lot differentials any more.

Does anyone know when that change was made or why?

I do know that some internet brokers sell less than 500 to 1,000 shares for one fee so odd lots aren't an issue.

Was it the discount brokerage or internet brokerages or SEC that did away with the odd lot charges?
