I haven't yet moved my portfolio to AMEX, but I will. I agree that the recent price changes are not indicative of great foresight, but I can understand their failure to take the day-trader volume into account.

I'll be in the $25K to $100K category with three free trades a month. I'd much prefer five free trades a month, but three is acceptable. I like the concept of free trades to attract investors to open accounts.

Come on AMEX, compromise! How about five free trades for the smaller accounts and 15 for those with over $100K. That will discourage day-traders, and still give the rest of us a deal too attractive to resist.
