The trading profits of SOES Bandits

SOES bandits are individual investors who use Nasdaq’s Small Order Execution System (SOES) for day trading. Their average profit per trade is small, but they trade dozens or hundreds of times per week. Bandits usually establish a position before most market-makers have updated their quotes, and lay off the position at favorable prices through Instinet or SelectNet. (Journal of Financial Economics)
