I recently heard a gentleman on the radio discussing how there are traders on wall street that are hooked so tight into the market, that they can make a see trades several second before the average Joe sees the prices. This allows them to make quick trades before others, making a few cents per trade. They can execute hundreds of trades per minute. So after a thousands or so trades a day,at a few cents each, it is like taking candy from a baby. He stated that one trader was making as much in on day as the average American makes in 47 years. One trader told him, the longest he ever holds a stock is 2 seconds. In essence siphoning money right out of the market. I no nothing about the stock market, so I was just wondering if this was possible.
