    It depends on what stocks you trade, and whether you take or provide liquidity. If you trade Naz stocks and mostly provide liquidity, you probably want unbundled. If you take liquidity in Naz stocks, you probably want bundled.

    Best way to find out is to make a spreadsheet of your trades and add formulas to figure out your commissions under each system.

    At least that's what I do when comparing commissions.
