    So much to say on this and yet no comments ? With all the worlds country’s in debt , one would presume a taxing of these millisecond profits ( and past profits) the world over might be implemented ASAP? If the owners of these industry’s are keeping there books closed ( if there are such accounts) they should not be allowed to profit. Why these practices are not illegal …..match fixing is in kindergarten compared to this… . Anybody who has worked with computers has known the power and speed that transactions can be done…let’s write the laws and more importantly ( however impossible) lets regulate them…or close them down. Or maybe we should all get together and build our own boxes ….I mean who would stop us?

      What the hell??

      Who are you to say we should tax these people? Leave them alone. You are not in charge of them.

      Regulation and laws will be the destruction of the free market.
