When I used to put stock order trades out, I used to put my real limit order trade on the market and then quickly put a very large limit order trade on the other side, which was 10-20% from the market price...then move it slightly closer to the market price, until my real trade was completely picked up. My real trade would get taken quickly by the market-maker computers, because they also saw the huge demand from my other big-order-bait, then I'd simply cancel the other bigger order. You can manipulate the market maker algorithms with really large orders that are somewhat far away from the market price.

These two anchors are rude and condescending to their guest.

Basically Michael Lewis is saying that a retail investor has no chance day trading. The small guy should only invest or at the very least hold on to shares for a year or so. That way if you get the short end by a fraction on your initial buy it will be negligible to your overall profit/loss over such a length of time. Fractions are everything in day trading and if you get the worst of it every time you open/close your position you have zero chance. This is the downside of capitalism. You get told that the only way to get ahead of the game (or at least have your savings stay ahead of inflation) is to have a stake in capitalism itself and buy some stock rather than put it in a bank account. But even then you get ripped off for doing the right thing. These institutions with all the dough take zero risk because they are just basically skimming off every retail investors trade but you have to do it because there is no other option. Even if you avoid managed portfolios which are basically a rip off, you still have to use a broker. What they take for what they do is not justified. The woman here is also right, the quotes they give you have been doctored. It probably occurs when you search for the stock symbol before executing the trade (which they make you do on the brokerage platforms). Complete con

Why is HFT legal? If insider information is illegal because it gives you an unfair advantage then why not HFT which gives you an unfair advantage.

the reporters are vested in the idea the market is fair becuz their livelihoods depend on its continual operation no matter how rigged it truly is.

Michael Lewis is spot on-- Wall St is rigged against retail traders and investors .Eric and Stephanie at Bloomberg are shamefully defending Wall Street because their jobs depend on Wall Street.

He doesn't want an intermediary like he explains in the end. Im assuming he doesn't know what blockchain is cause blockchain could be his answer.

So we should abandon the brokers (aka the middle men)? Also is he saying day trading is rigged, while investing long term in the stock market is fine?
manictiger (15 days ago)
He's saying HFTs are the middle men. He wants brokers to trade with other brokers with no one in between to scalp. They have that though. It's usually really shitty stocks on OTC and PINK that do that. The amount HFTs make per trade is fractions of a penny. That being said, his talk about HFTs paying brokers to delay information is interesting.

2 Million dollars guy explaining how's is really done, and a group of crack heads digressing from the main topic--very typical of mainstream media to keep the masses in the woods.

The Right-Wing Neo-Liberals and their media stooges will see the Trump Wall from space.....A reminder of their sociopathic disconnect.......The Transatlantic Trade and Partnership Deal that would have destroyed pay and conditions for millions binned by President Trump, LOL........No more kicking in McDonalds windows by anti globalization protesters, LOL......The look of shock and awe on the faces of the Davos crew who believe borders and taxation are a huge inconvenience.....When Donald J Trump became elected President..........Media moguls and their stooges apoplectic with rage......The Like or Dislike button!! .......From the comfort from your own home or Starbucks, LOL LOLer.........

New information. It is rigged. Buying what you guess is the long term bottom over time not all in one buy is your only chance. You must hold.

Everything today is fraud, ponzi schemes, lies and scams. Most people today live in a fantasy world or they are invested in something they are going to tout. Mutual funds have a dozen hidden fees; not just one. More bad info in this video. Average citizens are the pawn in these games and are always left holding the bag.

That is how I trade I think the stock market as a crap table roll the dice but one thing is this that he is partially wrong the fundamentals r still in play to find hidden gems he is wrong about u don't really need to be near wall St to beat it's game just do small trades to do it computers can't pick up small trades like they do in large trades no matter how much they tweak their hft computer they still can't pick it up

Mike Lewis is a fraud- his books are really novels where the plot never changes: an upstart band fights evil dark forces in a landscape that only a few really know. It’s cheaper to buy and sell stocks then it ever was- no thanks to Mr. Lewis.

He is totally off on the way the markets work. He’s a traditionalist in his understanding as are most analyst. Using quantum mechanics over a period of 100, 200, 400, and 800 years one can KNOW exactly where we stand in the markets. Fundamentalists are nothing more than a cog in a gear. Fundamentals don’t cause market action they are enveloped in a larger function and are the result of the physics.

TBH I read 3/4 of Flash Boys, and at no point in this interview did they actually talk about trades getting hijacked do to higher speed predatory trading. Which is what the book is about. It's too bad because what they were stupidly arguing about was far less interesting.

Is just me or does it really look like the interviewers are trying their best to argue against and embarrass Michael Lewis? The whole thing reminds me of when Cathy Newman tried to embarrass Jordan Peterson in an interview with him and only succeed in embarrassing herself.

These reporters are really fighting for the exchanges, that it isn't rigged. It's so simple. When you send a trade, they have programs that will make a trade before your trade goes thru. Not hard to understand.
Nic Arnold (4 months ago)
Blockchain technology will revolutionize the trading in the stock market. There will no longer be, as stated by Michael, unnecessary transactions between brokers and other intermediaries. Exchanges will be strictly a place where buyer meets seller and the information on the exchanges won't be controlled by a broker or other intermediary looking to profit from flash trading.

ask yourself just a question about who are big investors in various online trading platforms? search it. you will be shocked. its rigged.

Lewis, isn’t capable of understanding what’s going on. Pay for order flow is simply 3rd party traders working the bid/ask. If you don’t place your order “at the market”, they don’t make money and you get your fill if it’s available. Another huge blunder of Lewis, was his conclusion about why the housing market collapsed. I was selling my home in 2005 and was shocked at how many homes were sitting vacant. They were vacant because FreddyMac was giving loans and bridge loans to high risk people and those people were trying to flip and straggle Realestate..

Mathematician Von Neumann(one of the brilliant minds) contributed a lot to Game Theory, Stability Analysis and some other things. All gambling places use theories that are built to profit themselves and not the customers/traders/investors. It is so obvious that its rigged.
Michael is talking to idiots who pretend as if they know in and out of Stock Market.

This is why trading stocks is tough. You need to trade futures, not stocks. Are there HFTs in futures markets? Sure. But, a futures market's plumbing is very, very different from a stock market's plumbing.

Thank goodness we have cryptocurrecnies that allow us to do just that now. It will literally swallow up wallstreet once companies turn their stock into trad-able assets that can be exchanged in their store for a discount or simply traded for gas or anything. This world is happening and I pray people do some more research on this. Don't research on investor/news sites, look up Andreas Antonopoulos.

If all Brokers and Account Managers can be sincere like Frank Robert i think no trader can be suffering losses all the time, as nice as he is telling one the truth at the right time with his awesome strategy taking traders challenges upon himself, i am blessed in trading with him as my Account Manager, right with him my weekly winning is always 25k usd, he is so nice to everyone that comes his way.

Bloomberg, in general, confuses their unfounded opinions with fact. They're incapable of holding an intelligent conversation about anything related to the financial markets.
