    Wait...."Nobody is bluffing" in the market? What about spoofing? What about layering... What about the 2010 flash crash, in which various forms of "bluffing" were determined to be a primary trigger - with a pot to the tune of a trillion dollars?...,What about the crypto market, where you can watch bluffing going on in realtime 24/7 on virtually any exchange?...I know, it's supposed to be illegal, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen all the time. As the old poker saying goes: "A Smith & Wesson beats 4 aces."
