One Response to “The Trading Profits of High Frequency Traders”

    This is an interesting piece after just reading the “Why People fail at Trading”. It is arguably the reason I keep “stuffing the mattress” instead of entering trading. While not the financial caliber of the type of clients BR takes, I do have cash on the sidelines. This piece is one of the reason I prefer to keep it there. Reading corporate data is not a shortcoming having worked in corporate law (the easiest law) and filing SEC docs ad nauseum with basic math skills.

    Of course, critics like Nanex put this data on full display. For the “amateur” trader that would read this (me), it turns me off knowing that my bid is already being pillaged in milliseconds before I manually execute the trade. No?
