comparable to liar's poker
By: Antonius B.
Michael Lewis is a journalist that’s just not beatable when it comes to financial journalism. That’s why this book is only comparable to his magnum opus, Liar’s Poker. This book, Flash Boys, chronicles the rise of High Frequency Trading, or robo-trading. In it he reviews the controversial practice of electronic front-running, in which HFT firms exploits latency in investor’s stock order.
This book suits people who are interested in the stock market and the current structure around it. Also read this book if you are interested in Investor Exchange(IEX), the firm that promises to execute investor’s orders transparently.
