Okay we all got long and we all made easy money today but the HFT manipulation on the bid was extreme to say the least. If your a intraday trader like me your eyes must've been hurt by all the flashing the nerds did, as if electronically masturbating because they made some money long. How can the exchange allow some nerd to put and pull almost a million orders day in day out and not class that as manipulation? How does that make sense to any of you? There are calls to ban them but we all know that is hot air. I know so many experienced good traders who have now been blown out by these nerds, and yeah they helped me make money today cuz i was long but it still leaves a sour taste in the mouth let alone my eyes. I just hope they have their nerd machines on if a major event happens. I'd like to see them keep puttin little orders if another 9/11 happened. They'd be the only ones buying whilst the market blipped 1000 Dow points. Unfortunately, for every HFT nerd that dies there is another waiting in the wings to slowly make money day after day until one day something happens and he loses his whole account.
