    • andyk80: Downtrend resistance sitting at about $500 and dropping daily. We will find out real soon if we can break out of downtrend. I doubt it.

    • Perkins Cove: Do you only use HFT...?

    • Jayson Derrick: Yes, I won't hold for long periods of time, depends on the stock though. Trade can last 1 second-2 hours. take small profit, repeat.

    • Perkins Cove: Prompt....thank you for your openess. HFT has a bad rep with some, as I'm sure you know. It's kind of been "The Dark Side"..

    • Perkins Cove: The more open HFT's become, the less threatening they are. And am I wrong that reg traders like me, and HFT's can co-exist?

    • Jayson Derrick: yes the market is big enough for everyone. How much do you trade per day? Who is your broker?

    • Perkins Cove: I am but a little guy. Limited trades, not much cash. But I do have a plan (that does not include trading) to get to the next step.

    • Perkins Cove: I bumped this thread up to the Stocktalk crowd....so you now have a much larger audience. Tell us something we should know about HFTs. PLZ.

    • Jayson Derrick: A lot of HFT traders (5mm+ shares) make money from liquidity/exchange rebates which is boring but profitable. Not much glamor really lol

    • Perkins Cove: Thanks for identifying yourself as an HFT trader. Took guts.....Kudos.

    • Jayson Derrick: 5 years ago it was 'prestige' today not so much, it's a business and hard to make money, like any other job. Made $600 today not bad.

    • Perkins Cove: Again, thanks for your openness. You gut cred in my book.
