For regular account holders this is a very nice price drop! ShareBuilder has gone from very average to offering some of the lowest stock and options trading commissions among all brokers.  For advantage account holders, this means commissions drop for you too, though the incentive to be an advantage account holder is now much less since you are no longer getting a better deal.
