I know what you are talking about regarding the "change price fee" since I get these messages all the time. I have to be honest that I have not looked (or noticed) any dramatic increase in trading fees (still a lot less expensive than Ameritrade). Interactive brokers is so much better than Ameritrade on almost all areas but their weakest part is charting so I nowadays only use Ameritrade to plot charts (especially after the total screw over when Ameritrade covered my shorts (It was not a margin call and I still think that is was an Ameritrade in-house trader that screwed me). Tip to all Ameritrade customers- call and complain that you had problems connecting to them during this past week and they will give you 10-20 free trades) but even better would be to look into IB since their system don't collapse like Ameritrade. The IB signup process sucks but it is just a one time thing so I would gladly endorse IB.
Absolutely! This is more than just Quality tankage.
I was actually thinking on Wednesday of adding to my puts if it was going to hang around 20 for a few more days. The put premiums were starting to go down a bit. Ah well, what can you do... my existing FED puts are doing nicely, can't complain.
