http://traderupdates.nyse.com/2012/07/nyse_and_nyse_mkt_retail_liqui_1.html Do you have to basically be a GETCO or a Knight to be putting in price improved orders for retail liquidity? I currently send 0 orders to the NYSE and don't even have a port there, either through a broker or directly. Anyone familiar with this program at all? FWIW, I'm a nobody liquidity removing prop trader trading my own money, so I don't ever interact with exchanges. I just want to know whether it's worth firing off a whiny e-mail to my tech provider about how my life is being ruined without access to this liquidity.
