If yes then that was a poor rate since you can use it yourself to buy tickets at a value of 1.5+. They give back up to 500k points so you would need to have points in excess of ~1.43m for it to become less valuable than 1.5.
Uhm yes, because brokers pay the redemption value

Is MT projected to be worth less then .06 because of their redemption changes? Sitting on a few accounts with 100k, wondering if now is the opportune time to cash out.

If I transferred MR points to my FF account (BA), would brokers not be willing to buy, or pay less?

IMHO points/miles are constantly being devalued because of various factors. It certainly won't be getting higher than it is now; might stay the same, might not. If you have no plans for future use then now is as good a time as anywhere in the future to sell.

 Do you think AMEX points are going to become more valuable or less valuable to people that are still able to sell their points? After the lack of being able to transfer to new users for 2 months goes in effect?
