That screen shot is from a segment on the Colbert Report on high-frequency trading. I think I was mostly struck by how similar the operations of high-frequency traders are to those of ticket scalpers. You can see the segment here:

    Automatic trading in my view is not really something I enjoy too much as it’s highly risky and there is only profit that can be the reward so if that does not come then we have nothing to look at and for me on personal note it’s silly to even think of automatic system because of OctaFX which has wonderful analysis service which is so accurate that following it (manually) is highly profitable and there is no fees or extra money charged on that.
