Barclays Dark Pool Lawsuit and the ‘In Bed with Wall Street Conspiracy’

Posted by Larry Doyle on June 27th, 2014 9:49 AM |

The lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman against Barclays for ‘pernicious fraud’ in the operation of its dark pool sent shock waves through Wall Street yesterday.

The equity valuations for a number of large Wall Street banks declined significantly under the premise that this lawsuit will impact their own business operations in a negative fashion.

Beyond that, though, many might think serious allegations of lying, blatant misrepresentations, fraud, self-dealing, predatory practices aka high frequency trading, investor abuse, and the like mean one thing: just another day on Wall Street.

Let’s play hardball today and navigate a little deeper. (more…)

Thank You Readers and Happy New Year 2014

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 1st, 2014 6:38 AM |

Having just completed my 5th year of writing Sense on Cents, I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to all those who come here and join me in navigating the economic landscape.

I never could have possibly scripted what a fabulous ride it has been over these last years. The people whom I have met, the relationships I have developed, the knowledge I have gleaned and shared are all truly priceless. I would not trade any of these experiences for anything. So I thank you the readers for making this all real. In doing so, I wish you, your families, your businesses, and your pursuits all the best for a great 2014.

I am especially excited for all that this new year might hold. As I embark on 2014 and my book, In Bed with Wall Street, is set to be released next Tuesday the 7th, I take the efforts that have been concentrated here at Sense on Cents to an entirely new realm. I hope you will not only join me in my fight to bring meaningful transparency to a system that badly needs it but will share word of my fight detailed in the pages of the book with your friends, families, and colleagues.

I will keep readers apprised of my schedule regarding book events (signings, interviews, speaking etc) via postings here at the blog. Additionally, if you have relationships with media representatives (print, radio, TV) whom you might think would be interested in my work and the book, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or connect them to me via my email,

I hope that I might have the opportunity to meet — and thank — many of you personally in the weeks and months ahead. Until then and as always . . . navigate accordingly.

Naked Short Selling: A “Wall Street Conspiracy”?

Posted by Larry Doyle on April 17th, 2012 7:54 AM |

Do readers recall Dick Fuld, then CEO of Lehman Brothers, railing against hedge funds that were attacking the once venerable firm by aggressively shorting its stock? Fuld maintained that these aggressors were engaged in a practice known as ‘naked short selling’ and that they brought Lehman to its knees in the process.

The last four years have brought us plenty of intrigue and innuendo about a host of illegal and illicit practices on and off Wall Street, but we have heard and seen little about this practice. Why? What questions need to be addressed on this topic?  (more…)

Mortgage Settlement Pisses Into the Wind

Posted by Larry Doyle on February 12th, 2012 5:34 PM |

In a nation now all too familiar with a “too big to fail” banking system, a heavily manipulated and high frequency dominated equity market, and an incestuous financial regulatory system, we should not be surprised with a mortgage settlement that does little more than ‘piss into the wind’.

Pardon my cynicism, but one does not need to look too deeply into the recently announced mortgage settlement to understand there is little in the way of meaningful justice embedded in this contrivance. (more…)
