NYSE specialist fees go down? I had seen some brokerages that had increased NYSE transaction prices or had fees for NYSE GTC orders. But look like new NYSE fees are not that expensive: Transaction fees on NYSE-listed equities will be based on a fixed rate of 0.00025 per share rather than the current variable fee schedule. And this prices effective Aug. 1. See press release: http://ir.nyse.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=129145&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=878156&highlight= Do you think that transactions and surcharges might go down? NYSE fee is just 2.5c per 100 shares.
