Most investors know that over 90% of the New York Stock Exchange and other exchange trading is done by robots, not people. These are not just electronic order matching systems for individual trades; those have been around since the 1990s. These are actual robots that make the trading decisions and decide when to enter trades with no human intervention at all.

These robots work off of large databases and use artificial intelligence to decide when to act. The AI is fed by news scanners that look for key words in particular sequences to interpret the news. This key word scanning and automated order entry work at microsecond speeds; much faster than any human could possible read the news and decide what to do.

This is why markets seem to overshoot in both directions. All of the robots read the same news at the same time and react the same way. The result is a rush and crush to buy or sell without any humans who are smart enough to sell into strength or buy into weakness to mitigate the damage.

As if that’s not bad enough, this article reveals that automation has just become a lot more dangerous. Not only do the robots read and act on their own, they’ve begun communicating with each other.

This article refers specifically to retail pricing but the same issue applies to stock trading. The robots are colluding and acting like a gang to push markets around. This amplifies their power and their “deep learning” algorithms reinforce this behavior so you get more of it with the passage of time.

This will all end in a one-way flash crash where there is mass selling, no buying and no way out of the abyss.

Institutional investors can schedule a proof of concept with the world’s first predictive data analytics firm combining human and artificial intelligence with complexity science. Check out Jim Rickard’s company at Meraglim Holdings to learn more.

 

 

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

HERE’S ANOTHER ELITE WITH ANOTHER PLAN TO TAX AWAY YOUR WEALTH

The elites never rest when it comes to devising new ways to take your money through taxes, inflation or outright confiscation. The latest Trojan horse the elites are riding to take your money is climate change. The climate does change over long periods of time for reasons that are not well understood except that they

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
