    While I may talk to computer-controlled buys and wallets later, I am will rather here focus on FOREX and the difference between other markets in that domains. Sometimes, markets over reacts and acts in a "disconnected-to-the-logic" way, where they simply speculate too much on something that could happen but wouldn't reasonably happen. Now, some companies let control more wallets because algorithms sometimes yields better results than humans.


    The thing is, that, algorithms can easily act in a "disconnected-to-the-logic" way, and this, longer than any human could do, as long as the algorithm' logic is seeing a green light to acting that away. This is one of the problem that might happen. After reading few news about economy this morning, I wonder this: is this more happening in FOREX, because of the nature of the market being more "numbers-based"? Is FOREX more computer controlled than others markets, or this is just a feeling?
