      This doesn’t make sense, almost anyone can say the exact same thing about your Representative or Senator of choice.
      Example, I’m sure if we somehow magically threw Ted Cruz in her seat people would say the same.

      She belongs because they people in her district, state or etc says she belongs by voting for her, it is what it is.

    The whole thing is one of the communally-dumbest events in history, except for DFV. People don’t even understand that Robinhood actually HELPED people not allowing them to buy too much of a pump n dump. First, you have hedge funds shorting stock that doesn’t even exist. Then you have individual/retail investors loosing millions after the pump n dump was over. Newb investors want the freedom to try and get rich quick from the pump and then be reimbursed when they are bag holding

    funny how everyone is all of sudden skeptical of Robinhood and their “free” model for retail investors….but the same people have been likely using Facebook for “free” for years and likely have no clue how they make money…..If Robinhood isn’t really free as stated by Rep AOC then Facebook isn’t either….yet how many people deleted their Facebook accounts….it’s difficult to regulate something that you don’t really understand….looks like a lot of political posturing to seem tough on Wallstreet….It’s common sense that if two orders come in with same size they will not come in at the same time. One will get better execution regardless even if that’s due to microsecond difference. Order 1 of 100 hit the bid when supply was 50 and price was 50, Order 2 hit the bid when supply was 200 and 49.90. Who got the better price? In simple terms both orders won’t be executed at the same time. The order executed first will affect the execution of the second even if we’re talking in terms of microseconds. The price that the second order gets will reflect the change in supply/demand as a result of the first orders execution.

    Reps have likely never seen an orderbook…..in the example above demand of 50 at $50 means there exists figuratively 50 people looking to buy at $50 if Order 1 hits the bid, or sells 100 into this demand it can only fill 50 of the order at $50 and must fill the second half at $49.90.

    There’s supply of 200 at $49.90. When Order 1 gets completed there will only be 150 left. When Order 2 gets executed to sell 100 it has to be done at $49.90 because that’s where demand is. So that person/institution will get a price of $49.90 for the entire order because Order 2’s supply didn’t exceed demand at that price. Order 1 got a price of $50 for 50 shares and $49.90 for 50. If another Order comes in to sell, the cycle continues and that’s how the market moves in general.

    So who will get the better price, if the size is equal, it depends on execution; which order will get executed first and what’s the supply/demand ratio. This is what Ken Griffin was trying to explain. He said that it was economics(i.e. supply and demand which is economics 101) but he underestimated the general public’s understanding of the topic.

    These congressional hearings are pointless. Not picking up for anyone here, but the limited time doesn’t allow anyone to give a straightforward yes or no because some of the questions can pigeonhole someone into an answer that requires more depth and context before the answer can be judged. Take for instance at 2:34, the guy at Citadel is explaining WHY one sale would get preference over the other. I think it’s important to note before he says which party gets preference as it could make it seem like Citadel is being shady.

    Again, not advocating for anyone, but a hearing is where people should be heard, not shut down because someone needs to reclaim their time.
