First off, I've never had the volume to be able to use that in my favor so is there any other thing I can stand on to negotiate a lower rate with my firm? Right now, my commissions with fee's, trading NASDAQ, I'm paying ~.008 a share. My commissions are right around 75% of my profits. I look at the PNL thread and almost half the posts in there would be net losers if they where paying what I'm paying. So is there anything I can do or do I just have to suck it up till my volume picks up?
