Oh my God! Your article about the recent changes in Amex's online trading sounds like an excerpt from my angry email to American Express. Obviously, I am one of the fools who bought the bull about free and superior quality service (= bait) ... and now, switch! to not only loosing the free priviledges but a rate hike in sells!!! Why are we - long-term investors - paying for the day traders' abuse of their services? Why not cancel or penalize the day raders accounts? If I sound like I am 'barking up the wrong tree' that's because my long and well-crafted email to Amex only managed to earn me a FORM response from the company! Well my friends, THIS "Dear Customer" will be taking his chunk elsewhere ASAP... any advice on where to go for inexpensive quality online trading companies?
