What do you fellow traders guys & gals think about this?

Personally, I don't like it. A LOT more volatility in recent years, the market landscape has changed. I mean volatility in short term;lot more shake outs, and vacillation that human traders making human decisions could not do.

Seen a few pundits on CNBC saying it doesn't matter, their just going for "pennies"; i don't buy it.

EVERY transaction impacts price behavior! Not to mention outright fraud with "quote stuffing" etc.

Quote stuffing is not fraudulent, it may be frowned upon, but nothing more.
Front running is much closer to fraud, although yet again its entirely legal
if the exchange actively facilitates it :LOL:
