I found out today...as usual the hard way...that IB now forces professional subscribers to subscribe to every exchange that you wish to trade on. Until today, I was able to subscribe to the NASD only, yet trade NYSE or AMEX issues - without receiving quotes. I was told in January that the minimal subscription was NASD only. I had no problem not receiving quotes as I get them elsewhere. Now, if you are a pro subscriber and wish to trade anything on the NYSE/AMEX (not routed to an ECN), then you are forced to subscribe to all of them - $200 a month - for nothing. No quotes - no exchange trading. Once again, I have to find this out by having a trade get rejected then having to call IB to hear the new policy. This is typical now. Sad, very sad indeed.
