    How does anyone know this is because of HFTs? So quick to judge are you folks. Let's all get our torches and run to wall street and take down those HFTs!

    Every time something like this has happened it has been the HFTs. Oh and it did not used to happen before the HFTs.

    It is probably insider trading by the NSA that has caused the problem.

    Goldman didn't just cancel some trades....they cancelled the whole market! Is it too late to short TEPCO?
