OK...It's interesting that I did not get any response to the libelous remarks about Bright Trading being "bailed out" when I set that straight. I answered all the questions about costs, data feeds (including adding that our F/A rep was here and we needed to guide them through some much needed additions, that you all will benefit from nx orders for example). I explained that we don't charge 'pass through" ecn fees, and that even makes our nasdaq costs lower than echo, and I even agreed with the person who says that Redi was 400 milliseconds faster than F/A. I explained our payouts, I let you know my feelings about nasdaq based on facts from our history. I agreed that we all have problems with technology, and that we all must continue to upgrade. I explained about our clearing firm, their acquisition by Goldman Sachs which puts us in a great position....and I will even add this current (up the this exact hour) bit of information. Goldman has said that they will spend "whatever it takes to insure that Redi dominates the marketplace"....and this comes from a Board meeting with SLK, FOC, and GS. What the hell difference does it make about satellite vs. T-1 (we use whatever we find to be better)...is that the problem? I am not trying to be a martyr...and I didn't compare everyone to 3rd graders (some are just too sensitive)...I would like to do some cooperative promotion of the whole industry....Why put major league baseball on strike, just because we root for the Diamondbacks instead of the Yankees (or vice-versa, don't want to hurt anyones feelings).... Some of our traders put in over $10,000,000 worth of opening only orders apiece, and I know they cannot do that elsewhere...why? Because we have great risk control and enough confidence in our people and their trading skills. We don't charge people haircut for conversions up to 6 times their equity,....we have lowered overall costs year after year. We have fostered several spin off firms, we have given hundreds of traders a leg up on their trading skills, and we have over 70% of our experienced traders (1 year) profitable. What else really matters? As Gene said, we can all charge less, and some people still won't make it. I really don't think other firms want to start a pricing war that would "thin the herd" by about 90% (of current firms, that is). So, we can waste our time nitpicking, or we can focus on things that really matter. If you have a specific question that I have not answered (that is not some made up, "baited" query that you already know the answer to), let me know. And for God's sake, lighten up a bit everyone. Let's have a good Halloween with the kids! Note to Aly: What is the purpose of the "WizeTrade" reference in your manual? I see that they are spending a ton of money here in Vegas selling some type of software....what do you know about it? Just curious!
