I certainly agree that it's the large trading firms that make the market - what Pos or emiller or I do makes zero impact on the market. ( Rog)Hi Rog, Icy!There is no doubt that the big boys dominate the market, but to say the small investor has "zero" impact ( if indeed that is what is being said ) may be overstating the case a bit.IMHO, the small investor can have an impact in the small/micro/gnat cap arena. Indeed, many of the "big boys" are effectively prohibited from trading in many parts of this arena by size issues ( not allowed to purchase more than "X" percent of a given company's stock versus the size of an investment necessary to be "significant" from their standpoint, for example ).Of course, there are "medium/big boy" funds that delve into this arena, but, IMHO, they have less impact in this smaller pond than in medium/large caps.Just one man's opinion...with absolutely no math to back it up....and subject to correction by those with more/better info! ;-)Best regards,Murph
