Something @5min OCD speculator said in the deflation thread got me curious.

What exactly are 'algos'? (Algorithms, yes)  I assume they are purely software? Who writes them? I've seen reference to them scanning headlines, so can easily be gamed.  Are they built into another system or run as a standalone programme?  Do we know just what data sources they look at?

Trading floors are dead......it's all computerised now...

Interesting thing I picked up on regarding Robinhood.....they sell customer order info to hedge funds who 'front run' their orders! And this is not illegal!! O.o

Whole thing is a massive scam.....addictive though buying these share thingies eh? xD
