I think Jan.24th is when the NYSE will open the Specialist's book to the public. Will it have the same affect as Level II did for Nasdaq trader's? That remains to be seen, I hope it does. The specialist's job is to manipulate stocks and he is able to see order flow, something we trader's can't. I hope this levels the playing field because the specialist would rape his own mother for a penny. The monolpoly which the NYSE has needs to be broken up like Michael jordan's marriage. By the way, I think the whole Enron saga should be a lesson to all those investors and employees who were repeatedly sodomized by the board of directors. Do you think they used condoms? LOL, what a bunch of morons, and the US gov. pretends like they "had no idea" -- lol. How funny is that?
