I feel like the fool who just wandered in late,

After reviewing Sharebuilder's one time a week stock purchasing system, I decided to open a BuyandHold account instead (in favor of their twice a day purchases). I didn't think the new pricing plan sounded too unreasonable. Too bad I wasn't Foolish enough to find this discussion board first.

I am a new investor who plans on putting about $200 a month into index stocks (mainly SPY and QQQ) and perhaps a few individual companies. At that rate, 6.99/month would account for 3.5% in commission fees. Although it sounds like a majority of you have decided to leave B&H in droves, do you think its still a good option for someone with my investment strategy? Or would you advise that I get out now?

Thanks in advance.
