Posted by Larry Doyle on January 6th, 2012 10:17 AM |

This commentary is a little lengthy, but for those involved in the markets as a trader or an investor I believe it is a great read. Please share it. LD

If you are an active trader or an investor, I STRONGLY recommend you read this commentary. If you merely care about our markets and economy, I also STRONGLY recommend you read it.

From the Archives: High Frequency Trading Debate: Mano a Mano

In light of the structural problems displayed in the market yesterday, I believe it is timely to repost a commentary from last July:

In the spirit of continuing the dialogue on high frequency program trading, please view this ‘mano a mano’ debate on CNBC.

In one corner is Joe Saluzzi of Themis Trading. In the other is Irene Aldrige, Managing Partner of Able Alpha Trading.

Please let me know how you score “the fight.”

Additionally, for those interested in further pursuing information on structural issues in the marketplace related to high frequency trading, here is a link to my Review of Sense on Cents Interview with Joe Saluzzi on High Frequency Trading from last August.
