This 'Rigged Market' Just Keeps Making You Money: StockTwits

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- We're gonna keep today's wrap short and sweet, because the chart at the bottom is all that matters.

Traditional media outlets and everyone else continue to offer ad nauseum opinions about high-frequency trading -- not  thoughts on whether or not the markets are rigged, but on how rigged they are and how badly we're all getting screwed.

The stock market just keeps chugging higher, making money for buy-and-hold investors everywhere (otherwise known as "Main Street").

Excuse us as we shed no tears for the largest institutions -- many of which invested in high-frequency trading operations after noticing that their traditional source of skim (commissions) has been trending mercilessly towards zero.

Please carry on as you were, offering us little guys minute price improvements on our trades and otherwise not affecting much of us at all.
