Steve Lofchie comments in IFLR magazine about claims that the speed at which high-frequency trading (HFT) can digest what happens on one exchange and react on another by buying or selling at a different price can lead to market distortion and front-running:

"Or is it the result of the SEC establishing a structure that pays exchanges for sharing market data and forces market participants to look at the bids and offers on every exchange and give them priority even if they have a very limited space in the market?"
