Bot jockeys

    I need someone way smarter than me to explain how the bot jockeys make any money, as far as I can make out the volume is going round in circles and even in a falling market you need buyers to sell to as you force the price down and hope to buy back cheaper, anybody with an ounce of sense knows what is happening here so why would you buy when you know the price is going to be cheaper tomorrow.
    If you were a holder and wanted to get out I am sure that you would not wait until we had a positive announcement and sell into a falling share price, so it points to a few bots spinning the shares around, so I ask again how do they make any meaningful profit.
