Lowest Non-Holiday Market Volume Since 2008 Market Crash

Somewhat ironically, up until the Texas Instruments news hit, NYSE market volume today was 3.2 billion shares. This is on par with the lowest non-holiday market volume since just before the market crash in September 2008. It seems not even algos and robots care to trade this market anymore. Any banks that may have been hoping to make some commission-based profits on a mythical jump in trading this uear will have to shelve such plans and continue to rely on the only proven money-making model: massively leveraged prop trading.
