If anyone watching this tape closely for years, doesn't think there's something fishy going on with the HFT lately.....not sure what you're looking at.
Clearly, you see a genuine sell off in progress, then POOF the bid and ask are magically restored to higher ground not seen in half an hour.
I've seen enough sell offs to know when one is under way. I've seen enough of them stall out to know when you've got a sell off that stalled out.
But what I'm seeing here is not normal.
What is this, the Iron Curtain part 2?
S&P should have been down at least 25 points today.
But don't worry, the bots will back fire soon.
there can be 2 reason for this 6 pt upside in 2 mins at close , one is 4pm news somewhere which i cannot find but all the news are supposed to be released after 4 pm not few secs before.
other reason is that if there is something bad coming so they are buffering it up . it just manipulated the spy for 168 and now on light volume they can do whatever they like .
I don't think I've ever seen you post a correct viewpoint. One would think you could get something right now and then, simply via the Law of Averages. And all you ever post are slanted, controversial opinions using inflammatory language and end with a maniacal "LOLOL!"
WhTF is the matter with you?!?
