What's with AMEX?

  1. I think I'm going to stop trading on AMEX. Seems I get the worst slippage there and have the longest wait on trade execution.

    Today I waited over 25 minutes to have a market order executed on AMEX. In that time the price is dropping and there are plenty of trades going off.

    This seems par for the course with AMEX. Seems completely fcked up.

  2. You are correct, sir. People in the know call it the SCAMEX.
  3. I've tested my systems with and without the AMEX stocks, and it doesn't make a huge difference. It's not enough to make me want to continue trading the AMEX.

  4. AMEX is a complete joke. Almost as bad as trading the pink sheets.

    Save your time, money, and sanity....leave that rinky dink exchange alone.
