"In 2002, 85% of all stock market trading happened on the New York Stock Exchange and some human being processed every order.[77] The New York Times estimates that 50 percent to 70 percent of all trading in 2014 is done by “traders” who live in server parks by computers that run on Algorithm that executes trades in a fraction of the time that it takes to blink "

Mr C - here's a question: for some whose technique involves (if I correctly remember), using volume etc as confirming signals for price action, has the growing importance of dark pools or other off-exchange venues had an impact on your own style?

No, not at all. I don't actually use volume in the accepted way popular among amateur traders as the way they use it is extremely unreliable.

HFT moves are so fast, milli-seconds, and for such tiny amounts, they make no difference to a "home" trader.
Of course the fact that HFT moves are millions of times a day generate the large profits for the companies and funds.
