I feel the use of computerized trading software and systems solely used to give a speed advantage over human investors should not be allowed.
The average Joe investor is relying on the SEC to provide market regulations that are fair and balanced so they may invest for retirement without being taken to the cleaners by those who just want to make a quick buck.
The United States needs regulations that provide stability in the markets.
