Re: Promise of no more FIOS is merely convenient
For a portion of the market, that is correct. For a bigger section of investors, that is not true at all. I don't have a problem with algorithmic trading per se, after all, it does add liquidity to the market. When I start having an issue is when algorithmic (or any other active trading scheme) begins to manipulate the market unfairly in favor of a minority versus the broader market, e.g. the "flash crash".
So back to your original question, what exactly is the issue with companies needing to please their investors?
