Short-selling algorithms

When Donald J. Trump announced he was offering his services as president...this BLOG examined...and...decided to support his bid...concluding as president...he would do his best to make America great again...remove linoleum and put marble down...so to speak...sweep away the "red tape, tax and spend" idiocy of the 20th Century NANNY STATE and usher in a 21st Century otherwise unhampered market...a place where never can be found an able-bodied pauper...indeed...a place where never can a would-be master with envious mob decree: "Our tears...your purse!"

Recently...the resultant blossoming commercial markets...markets kindled by the extraordinary leadership of  President Trump and his courageous Congressional Republicans...have been going up and down in 500 point swings. Siphoning off the extraordinary value such an up-and-down in burgeoning markets hold...computer-sellers and computer-buyers are gobbling up anything of value if there is some way to squeeze profit from the expected "swing".

When the 26,400 number was reached by the DOW...for instance...algorithms kicked into action to gain advantage. "Short-selling" algorithms began to buy-sell...looking for benefit...watching for differentials...and...executing trades* in micro-seconds.
