Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    I love Felix Salmon’s article title on ML goofy drama on HFT. “High Speed Journalism.”

      This is just one journalist sneering at another. Professional jealousy? Lewis has produced an “entertainment” with a serious purpose. Sure it’s replete with theatrics but his case is sound and any reasonably knowledgeable person can look beyond the bits of stagecraft. And Salmon is wrong. Small investors are being harmed by front running, quote stuffing etc.

    More than once during the morbidly fascinating ‘pay-no-attention-to-the-man-behind-the-screen, little girl’ CNBC shoutfest the day after the 60 Minutes segment, Lewis said in effect that the issue needs a bit more time to dig into than is typically afforded on today’s ADHD Tee-Vee … well, this is an hour you won’t regret. Send it along to your less-than-nerd friends and family, and then contact your broker and ask what he is doing to ensure fair markets.
