"Karl Marx's body lies a-mouldering in the grave,
His soul's marching on."

#2 I'd like to see a tax or fee charged on every order placed on Wall Street (etc.), whether filled or not; that would put an end to the computerized pump & dump games.

#3 NO IT WOULD NOT.

It would mean the orders would be emplaced for larger more sudden movements.

If you want to cut speculatory positions then there's only one way, and that's to lower the volume of credit.

#4 The programs post zillions of simultaneous buy and sell orders, at all prices, never intending to actually fill the orders, but rather to create an artificial level of activity, and seek out the best 'real' price, which they then do fill. It's a legal-ish scam.

#5 It's got nothing to do with buy or sell orders. It's got to do with taxable revenue streams.
