Here is a very good explanation…..http://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2015-spoofing/

High frequency traders have the abitliy to spoof the stock market especially in high volume marketplaces like SP500 futures, eurodollar, bond futures,and some forex.Although, you need to have the technology, a trader has to be very astute and have a quick eye to spot certain entries to execute quickly and swiftly. The way I see it, high frequency trading has its pros and cons, its a two-way street in the open free market environment. Obviously, retail investors/traders have the low end of the stick, but if you can see and read the right patterns in any given time frame it would be a great catalyst to virtually any level of skill a trader has but with the right mindset.
