    OT - A.I. Trading Systems

    On low volume days like today it's both fascinating and frightening to watch the A.I. trading systems battle each other in the absence of any humans trading. With a line of bad code a stock could double in seconds on just a few shares moving, or it could fall to zero on just a few shares moving back and forth. One article I read said that these flash crashes and flash spikes occur a couple of dozen times each day.
