I learned something about dark pools for exchanges. I'm starting to look loser to instances like October 2015 Scottrade hackers database breached. Many investors who trade through online brokerage accounts assume they have a direct connection to the securities markets. But they don't.

Interesting, knowledgeable people discussing important issues, spoiled by constantly moving from one to another without giving anyone a chance to finish a thought, and even more by spinning images and flashing lights, literally making me ill.

What it tells me that the little guys just can't compete with the super machines. Hedgers have it all wrapped up with a golden bow. And then you have the flash crashes that actually no one knows what the heck happened. Only the computer and it's autopilot know the truth. Poof! HFT, Algorithmic and dark pools?! Oh! My! All in the name of who? Only the sharks can smell the blood in the water. The Ghost Exchange is in my book a must see Documentary. Eye opening for sure. Please have more coming.

I believe that many of the folks interviewed in this article could have given more to their presentations if they were given a longer opportunity and more technically focused questions. For someone unfamiliar with the rapidity with which changes in computer networked markets have occurred, this level of presentation is perhaps appropriate. I was glad to see that the issue was being raised although I expect that the breadth of coverage and understanding will be limited. I worked as an application developer back in the early days of computer networking when Arpanet was evolving into the early internet and conservative institutions like banks still relied on separate channels for wire transfers and serial communications for reliable interconnections between terminals and hosts. In those days I was able to start with a marketing system for "Short Term Commercial Paper" which relied on actual certificates presented to customers and then redeemed at maturity via a "cash window." and transform it into one with serial communication based purchase and maturity confirmations and supporting automated wire transfers. The per transaction estimated cost of operating this system to the corporate issuer was taken from $40-45 per trade to $5-7 when the automation was rolled out. This one application hosted an outstanding balance of $27 billion dollars for the financial institution which at the time would have qualified as the world's fourth largest bank. One technical failure of a device called a "MUX" which was the only failure in five years of operation, caused the issuer to have to resort to manual wire transfers based on a printed report.Read more ›

I just finished the Finance portion of my MBA studies. This is a very good documentary regarding the impact of high frequency trading using algorithms and how it has changed the basic structure of the stock market from what it was just 20 years ago. The complexity of the financial markets is astounding, and this documentary gives some insight. I really enjoyed it.

Obvious problems were with the production values. The sound was horrible. Background music competes directly with experts talking. You feel like you're in a loud cafe with a friend trying to talk over the din. The backgrounds were distracting. Why is a CEO of a hedge fund sitting in an empty warehouse? Why is the camera panning from left to right as he's talking? This film does little more than scare the financially illiterate without informing them of how the system works today. For instance, we're led to believe that Knight Capital lost over $400 million because of a "rogue algorithm." That's false. The problem was traced to a failed deployment of its new software. The technician deployed the software manually and only 7 of 8 servers were updated. The problem was not discovered or fixed in time to stem the losses. The film doesn't tell us that Knight's stock collapsed and was bought by another firm. So many things were not told to us in the film. That's because experts get cut off and are edited into quick sound bites and the whole context gets lost. It would have been nice if they explained the abuses of HFT. It's when I sniff the exchange network looking for buy orders, take advantage of my proximity to that network to slip a buy order ahead of others, and then sell to them at a higher price all within a few milliseconds. If the trade doesn't go my way I can just cancel it. This creates market inefficiencies at best and erodes investor confidence at its worst. The irony here is that the fast-paced, abrupt, quick sound-bite feel of the film is itself a mirror of the very thing it seeks to criticize. Maybe this film, like computerized trading, is a symptom of our culture where few people have attention spans longer than a few milliseconds.

Well done and interesting... also unfortunately, something we should know about. The book "Flash Boys: a Wall Street Revolt" will also give you an fluid and compelling insider glimpse into this situation.
