The two most dominant Market Participant Groups in the Stock and Options Markets today are Dark Pools and their counterpart the High Frequency Traders. Dark Pools is an ominous and dubious title for the giant Mutual and Pension Funds venues, where these giant Institutions buy and sell millions of shares of stock. Dark Pools are a benefit to both Independent Investors investing for their retirement, and for Retail Traders who are trading stocks for monthly income.
High Frequency Traders have been in the news, but most Independent Investors and Retail Traders are severely misinformed as to their role and true risks which they created. In addition Independent Investors and Retail Traders do not understand the role and benefits of the Dark Pools. Watch the Balance of Power webinar about Dark Pools and High Frequency Traders.
