    Or any other exchange for that matter, it's got to be significant and I see deutsche bourse getting hit today as a result.

  5. anyone know what percentage is crossed up bollocks that is not genuine income earning volume??
  6. of the 20%?
  7. if 20 percent is genuine ( prop ) trading then thats just an exchange way of saying 80 % is crossed up algo bullshit.

    eurex are the biggest short of all shares out there along with the cme and nyse.

    this volcker rule has changed the game.

    i dont think people have woken up to this yet.
