Did you mean: 


being the hot topic of the day.


Certainly is practiced on electronic futures exchanges.


Seems to me that net impact on price movement would be to accentuate swings- if somebody can bait an order out, pull it and then frontrun you it would seem to just be an additional push in the direction of trend.


Bottom line, it is a huge pot of money (although nowhere near the size of the equity pot) and if somebody skms a few $billion off, does it matter? In my opinion, it matters as a matter of principle more than of money. Market integrity should be protected foremost.


Just interested, are there any commercial traders of sufficient size out there who have experienced seeing a block offered and then a split fill with the balance then moved on you?

If speedbumps were installed at the exchanges, thus making HFT untenable and leaving us with a lack of "liquidity."


Well, we'll just have to live without them. Too bad.
