August 4, 2010:

In the news today-

Proposition 8 has been rejected. (Though, as expected, it's being appealed.).

And the AIs are doing something... interesting.

The ask and bid prices are apparently public, but that's just the committed ones - an AI trader could easily be waiting to see the prices it was programmed to want rather than just offering stuff at a fixed price. (And probably would be - otherwise, why not just put the ask/bid out manually and not waste time paying for high-speed links?)

Or they could be using the market data as a covert communications channel. Paranoid? Moi?
