The rise of high-frequency trading helps explain why activity on the nation's stock exchanges has exploded. Average daily volume has soared by 164 percent since 2005, according to data from NYSE. Although precise figures are elusive, stock exchanges say that a handful of high-frequency traders now account for a more than half of all trades. To understand this high-speed world, consider what happened when slow-moving traders went up against high-frequency robots earlier this month, and ended up handing spoils to lightning-fast computers.

 

 

I dunno, the more and more you look at it the markets seem to be like playing at a Casino......

cnbc is divisionII

 

If they bothered to look at the massive fluxuation in currencies vs the dollar, they'd have an idea what was happening...

 

but no, they will continue to compartmentalize equities and "astound" themselves and their audience with flashy jargon ...

 

what a joke...

 

hint - anyone watching the BRL and the MXP vs the USD?

 

Here's agood one - they can also look at adr and gdr dividend hangs, but they won't because that would require an ounce of effort.

Thats part of what got us so screwed.

 

 

Lots of new regulations being talked about, hopefully the casino style will be phased out by some of them.
