HTFs shouldn’t be legal. Here’s why:

High Frequency Trading is when a firm or someone uses a very powerful computer to buy millions and sell millions of shares at once.

Lawmakers need to outlaw this because the average investor does not have anywhere near the resources large hedge funds have to purchase such equipment.

In a single sitting, a stock’s price can be up 5% and down 5% if manipulated hard enough by an HTF.

Here’s the rule I’m proposing: if it can jerk off faster than me, it shouldn’t be allowed to use on the publicly traded stocks!

Now is a great time for $AAPL (Apple) to buy back shares to become cash neutral.

After Chairman Powell delivered not so good and not so bad news, stocks tumbled. $AAPL went from $122 to south of 118.98 at a point.

One thing is certain, Apple is still the richest tech company in the United States. The facts and the figures show that the majority of smartphone users now use an Apple phone.

This is a great time to buy back their stocks from investors as a way to increase the value of their company. If they do, Warren Buffet would maintain a 5% hold on the entire company, rising Berkshire Hathaway’s net value by roughly $200B by just sitting there.

Apple stocks flooded the market. With 29 million as of opening hours, to now 139 million half an hour before closing. Great time, Apple.

After serving two-years of his prison sentence, an unnamed German man has been released from prison. His crime? Installing malware on numerous computers and utilizing their power to mine over 1700 bitcoins (estimated to be worth $60,000,000).

For two-years, the German police tried hard to crack the man and obtain the password. However, he remained silent. He has since been released, but the question remains — will his silence pay off?
