Sorry...I found out it was not Chartist or aliases. It was a start of mid-week jokes. Your turn guys! BTW MM = a broker-dealer firm that accepts the risk of holding a certain number of shares of a particular security in order to facilitate trading in that security. Each market maker competes for customer order flow by displaying buy and sell quotations for a guaranteed number of shares. Once an order is received, the market maker immediately sells from its own inventory or seeks an offsetting order. This process takes place in mere seconds (Investopedia)
