There's been a lot of talk lately about high-frequency trading, both good and bad.
Although Jim Cramer believes that individual investors can generate better returns than the pros, even pros involved in high frequency trading, he doesn't like the practice of high-frequency trading, in the least.
In fact, Cramer compares high-frequency traders to mosquitoes. "There is no positive case to be made for mosquitoes," he said in his explanation of the analogy.
But even if they are a blight on humanity, as Cramer alleges, the "Mad Money" host also doesn't expect the Securities and Exchange Commission to crack down on high-frequency trading anytime soon.
Although nobody knows exactly what's being said privately inside the SEC, Cramer has come up with three reasons why he thinks the SEC hasn't come out against so-called HFT.
