    Dear Mr. Schwab
    I am currently participating Horizon Retirement plan (457 b) through LA County. The plan enables me to route my investments to Charles Schwab platform so I can choose my favorite securities (stocks). In the Platform I and very pleased with Street Smart Edge platform. In fact, I opened personal Charles Schwab account. I am currently invested in AMC Stock. In my personal account, I requested that my orders be routed straight through a lit exchange (NASDAQ, ARCA..ETC). I signed up for the direct access to enable my PCRA trust and personal account to place orders directly to the lit market. In my personal account venue drop down button, the NASDAQ and ARCA were added, however, in my PCRA trust account they were not added.
    Customer service informed me that I am unable to purchase securities to straight to the exchange and must route my orders to a Payment for Order Flow (PFOF) AKA Market Maker. My community (APE nation) has discovered that market makers like Citadel Securities LLC has been fined in the pass for trading violations.
    On July 23, 2021, in your quarterly Routing Public Report, Charles Swab reported the following; In Non-S&P 500 stocks 91.56 % orders were routed through market makers and 8.44% was routed straight to the exchange. 34.74% was routed through Citadel LLC and 27.61 % was routed through Virtu Americas LLC. ETC…
    My community has, Allegedly, discovered that the price action that appears on the lit exchange for AMC, (Who I am currently invested in long and will be buying additional shares of AMC in the future) is not the correct value of AMC and is being compromise through a few Market Makers.
    Therefore, I am respectfully requesting that my venue button on my PCRA account includes NASDAQ and ARCA lit exchange. By placing my orders directly to the lit exchanges our community feels that it is difficult for the market makers to manipulate AMC’S price actions.
    Thank you
