There are times when I'd like to share something with you but my Voice in the Garden site does not seem the appropriate place, thus, this blog.

There are experiences, thoughts, views... and for anyone lurking/waiting to pounce (as has occurred on several occasions), please do not attempt to turn what I post into a political statement. This is NOT a political site, but IS about occurrences, reality, and personal opinion concerning what I see in the world around me and my family. There are many excellent writers whose works "speak" to me, and I shall include some of them. At times it may be
something I think you would enjoy or simply whatever ails you (me).

Stock Market Algorithmic Trading

If you think someone is entering buy and sell orders all day in the stock exchanges, think again. Nearly 75% of all decisions are being made by a machine, not by humans. The stock markets are ruled by machines and algorithmic trading, HFT (high frequency trading), automatic programs. Comforting knowing this?
