45. Pre knowledge of market disruption is not necessary for a high speed trader to make money.

When you have machines running trading programs that can make thousands of trades a minute, any volatility is profitable.

To keep the richest investors happy, all Trump has to do is move the market one way or another.

For example, one day he can say he has reached a trade deal with China. Market jumps up. One week later, he announces another round of tariffs on Chinese goods. Market drops. Either way, the computers take advantage of the movement.
