Tyler Durden's picture

If the market's are not 'rigged' by HFT teasers front-running any 'real' flow that happens to take its chances on the public stock exchanges, then please - - someone explain this chart.

As Nanex shows, the massive bulk of oddlot trades on most of the major US equity markets are 1-share-lots! (the spike in the far left of the scale)

Paging Mary White - stil convinced there's no 'rigging' going on here.
