I watched level II all day and I mean all day .throughout the day the the shares bid were from 2 to 10 to 1 ask and it took for ever to move to the next penny. ex.I watched a bid of 7000 and an ask of 500 shares and could not affect the price. on the other hand when this ask was slightly higher it would drop the price quickly and multiple cents . It seems like the mms have a hand in why this happens and if so how? I know markets can be minipulated is that what was happening.
