Close to Me

Carpenters - Close to You

adapted from The Carpenters (You Tube)

Why do HFTs suddenly appear  
Every time my stop-loss nears?
Just like you, they long to be
Close to me

Why do stocks crash down from the sky
Every time I’m long SPY?
Just like you, they long to be
Close to me

On the day that I was born
The algos got together
And decided that I was a dream come true
Now they slam the index every time            
My brown stochastic gets crossed by the blue

That is why all the quants in town
Follow my orders all around
Just like skin, they long to be
Close to me
