Quote from TsunTzu:
Lowest October volume for six years. Eurex are quite happy to sit in their control room and watch the market be abused by algo's in breach of their own market code on a daily basis. If they don't care about market integrity, why should anybody else. Bring on the FTT, the sooner the patient flat lines the better.
The Algo's have driven away the old style Point and click human traders, those guys died with the dinosaurs.I used to maybe do around 50,000 spins a month, now however, I am maybe doing 1000 spins a month.Still clipping the same size but probably only do 1 or 2 trades a day ( and dont even trade some days ).Feel sometimes as its a waste of life, sitting on my butt all day just staring at prices waiting for a good position to put on-very unfufilling and extremely boring.
