I would disagree that the market is like a regular auction.

Most of the trades are speculation, people trying to guess what everyone else is doing.


And that's also why the average trades are so small - ES ~4, NQ ~1.6, YM ~1.4 contracts per trade at the moment all
day long during the RTH. Most orders simply exist in order to "ping" the market and find out if a minimal increment
triggers a move or not.
