I was reading an article back in August/September that was talking about the Nasdaq offering shares (through a transfer agent) of QQQQ for direct purchase (no commissions) for ongoing monthly investments. I am a huge fan of direct stock purchase plans and am interested in this offering as well as any other opportunities to buy ETF's with relatively no commissions. Has anyone heard when the Nasdaq will be offering this? Does Powershares or Ishares anticipate offering something similar? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
