Recently I received the below communication from IB regarding their NYBOT data feed, this was just a few weeks ago. Now they are telling me to disregard the message and cough up 'substantial' $75/month fees for NYBOT instead. So what's the deal here, do they have rebates for actual traders, or don't they? "Effective January 1, 2012, the InterContinental Exchange (ICE) will be instituting a new market data policy whereby they will charge a substantial fee for "View Only" subscribers, but provide a rebate for actual traders. In anticipation of this new policy, we will be discontinuing your current InterContinental Exchange and New York Board of Trade feed and implementing two new feeds: InterContinental US / New York Board of Trade 75 USD InterContinental Europe 75 USD The 75 USD fee is reduced to 1 USD should you execute a minimum one lot trade during calendar month of subscription. If you still wish to receive the market data at the new tariff, please subscribe on or after January 1 through Account Management / Trading Permissions / Market Data Subscriptions. A full listing of market data subscriptions is on our website under Fees / Market Data & News. If you have any questions regarding these changes, please create a ticket via the Message System also within Account Management.''
