Flat-fee equities commissions, which under certain circumstances may be lower and more advantageous to larger-share-per-order traders, are primarily designed for use by individual traders who value execution quality and speed, and desire the highest level of flexibility with their execution costs. As such, the intelligent-routing algorithm may favor less expensive execution destinations including market makers.
