A Step By Step Guide How To Crash The Entire Market

So now that you know how to crash the entire stock market single handedly, please do. Because this is not a "market." As we said in July 2010,  "It's Not A Market, It's An HFT 'Crop Circle' Crime Scene."

And finally, this:

In addition to the Layering Algorithm, Defendants frequently manually "flashed" large-lot orders in a variety of lot sizes in the Order Book that were quickly canceled with no intention of these orders resulting in trades. At times during the Relevant Period, the Flash Spoofing was used with and to amplify the impact of the Layering Algorithm. At other times, Defendants' Flash Spoofing was used alone to benefit Defendants' trading strategies
