Re: <nettime> High-tech trading, 2011 edition


The hits keep on coming. You just know one of these days, someone's going to find a way to root and loot all these high-speed trading programs, or else write a Stuxnet-type virus to crash them for a laugh.

The people running them barely understand them as it is. It'll be the IT guy who learns he didn't get a bonus that some idiot trader did and/or is getting the ax.
