Well, a nice evolution is going on in the marketplace. Island's share in volume for the QQQ grew from 5.9 % in january 2001 to 28.73 % in january 2002. Same thing for the S&P futures. ALready 40 % is done electronically when adjusted that the E-mini is 1/5 of the big contract. The Forex market is the last to jump on the train, but the train is already moving. Hoera, for a fair market place without those crooked market makers !
