IB customers are now being charged $1.00 a month for the "free" ICE/NYBOT data feed. Contrary to the post from IB representative JPasciolla in the thread "What are you ER2 fellows doing..." and phone confirmation from another IB representative back in September that the $1.00 ICE/NYBOT data fee would not be charged, the $1.00 charge for September showed up on my 10/28/2008 statement. The IB answer as to what happened is: "I do apologize for the inconvenience, it is true that the subscription was free roughly about a month or two ago. However that has changed and the new fee for this subscription is US $1.00. If you need clarification regarding this matter please email firstname.lastname@example.org" Doesn't IB management grasp the concept that paying customers should be notified of meaningful policy changes ahead of time and not in arrears? I know it is only a lousy $1.00 a month, but I have an advisor account with no reason to have any cash at the advisor level other than to now pay this lousy $1.00 a month. The money I pay every month in commissions to IB is not enough, so now they need an extra lousy $1.00 a month from me and the rest of the futures traders that want the ICE/NYBOT data feed.
