It’s ridiculous that this was ever legal. Nothing of value is created from high frequency trading. So how can money be made from something that doesn’t create value? It simply doesn’t work. Something MUST break. Anyone who didn’t see this in the beginning was making money from it.

How could this have ever been legal? High frequency trading produces nothing of value. Making money from nothing is little more than robbery. The value has to come from somewhere and it’s not coming from the trader, so someone is getting robbed.
