Isn't it time to curb computer trading before the markets and our economy are distroyed. The computer traders are what accounts for the violent swings in the market. Swings of over 200 points on the dow in an hour are dangerous and are killing the small invester who doesn't have access to a direct connected computer to an exchange.
I also think it's time to put limits on after hours trading. If more hours are needed then make the exchanges open at 0800 and close at 1700 like any other business. Not all investers have access to trading after hours.
It short lets level the playing field and add some sanity to the stock market before a real diaster strikes
