by Dr. Jeffrey Lewis, Silver-coin-investor:
High Frequency Trading or HFT is a form of rapid algorithmic trading performed by computers and executed directly into financial markets, typically without human intervention.
Recent estimates have indicated that upwards of 70 percent of futures and equities trading volume is now being executed by algorithmic trading programs that are often run by large fund managers and financial institutions.
The Big Money is Behind HFT
HFT programs now have enough money behind them to destroy real wealth or productive capital in a microsecond if they simultaneously deal in large enough volume to cause a flash crash in a market they are permitted to operate in.
