or will it? One of the reasons I follow AIWierdness so closely is it's an exploration of what happens when you push an algorithm out of its comfort zone. The figure that gets bandied about is 80% or so of the stock and bond markets are HFT Markov bots; their time horizon is microseconds. If someone upsets the algos by dumping, all the algos will dump and they will dump right away. And then they will buy and they will buy right away. And then humans will freak out and then the market will no longer be 80% algos, it'll be 80% algos whose humans are trying to figure out if their training data covers the current conditions and all of a sudden the past 15 years of volatility that's been drowned in dark pools full of robots will rise to the surface at once and shit's gonna get interesting.
