Book Description

Only a day trader can understand the adrenaline rush that comes from jumping in and out of the market all day long, watching instantaneous stock prices stream across the computer screen, taking a position and minutes later dumping it. They live a life of high-octane excitement, shaving an eighth of a point here, six cents there, and hoping to finish the day ahead of where they started.

Nick Anthony is the owner of a firm in San Diego called Market Makers, where he rents out work stations to a bunch of these trading junkies. When Fed intervention brings the markets to a screeching halt, pummeling the value of world stocks and throwing the economy into a deep recession, several of Nick’s best people are hurt badly and may face bankruptcy. Nick not only agonizes for damage he sees done to these good people, but he decides to do something about it. All of a sudden the idea of trading on inside information, which is strictly illegal, begins to have a great deal of appeal.

From the office of Market Makers the conspiracy is hatched. This uniquely trained and educated group, armed with varying degrees in law, finance, and Information Technology, along with years of experience in the securities markets, sets about to build a worldwide network of corporations and trading accounts to make their activities in the securities markets untraceable. The plan takes a serious detour when the group fronts a transaction for a character in whom the FBI has an interest.

Nick does a juggling act between running Market Makers, being a devoted father in a split marriage, and promoting his love interest with the beautiful Sarah Palmer. In Diamonds and Cubes the action takes place on the trading floor, across the globe, on-line, and the bedroom.
