High frequency trading betrays the main purpose of stock market that is to provide public companies with the capital. Also, it put small investors who are the main long term force of the markets in unequal position compare to short term speculators. I believe, it's the time for market regulators to put an end to trading strategies compromising the main purpose of stock market. Also, I think that non-institutional investors all over the world should join forces against HFT proponents.
