When in Rome, eh? I just don't see things that way, OK?
Aren't you here too?
I'm glad someone pointed that out.
I am with JWKirkland; agree to disagree ...
That is what I am here for ...
Absolutely am. However....my excuse.
I have 2K on ND to cover -1 and I want to make sure I win b4 I go out and spend it.
It is only 7.30 Pacific........I wont be hitting the bars til at the earliest 9.00
master of the subtle point-out.
In the pre market and post market except its not NYSE but usually
Instinet with the Best Bid / Offer
I do not have a program to do this but I set up a few pages
on my trading platform and try to narrow the spreads to under
25 - 50 cents ... on island ( or Redi ) for 100 shares
sometimes there is a program that goes best bid or low offer over mine so I go high bid or low offer over them
it seems the auto program usually stops at 6 cents
If anyone out there uses the IB platform you can set the
% key at 1 % ... that should help prevent
keystroke offers but there are no guarantees
Hammering at institutional fraud is one of the great services a trader can do in the marketplace.
May I point out that this is not the same thing as capitalizing on an individual's keyboard mistake?
Of course we can agree to disagree.
It is a dirty job; but someone has to do it ...
