Better technology is not the answer to the stock market which is basically a gambling parlor Vegas style in microseconds. There will always be faster computers which will take advantage of the market in the future with nonosecond transactions AND THE ODDS WILL ALWAYS FAVOR THE HOUSE AND ALL OTHER INVESTORS WILL BE SHAFTED BY THE BIG BOY FAST COMPUTERS. Until you take out THE ADVANTAGE OF gambling SPEED from the stock market, you will not have a fair system for investors big or small.
The solution to the technological seeming paradox is to put in a time delay into all stock transactions so that when bids are placed they have to wait about a second or a few seconds before the transaction goes through. There should be a bid que during the bidding process where only the highest bid in the second TIME DELAY goes through and the rest are rejected. A time delay before a bid is accepted is the solution to computer software glitches in the stock market.
To avoid stock market crashes by the big boys who can sell a million or more shares in one transaction and intentionally lower or raise the price of a stock at a whim, the dollar amount of the trading transaction should be limited to about a million dollars. This will avoid money dumping and unjust manipulation in the stock market which favors the billionaires in this country and world!!!!!
