Interesting ‘flash boys’ Michael lewis interview


Recommended Posts

Thought the below was really interesting and I’d recommend taking the time to watch. Think it shows brad in a very good light and I do believe what he has been doing for the last few years has been in the interest of a fairer market. 

William O'Brien who was the BATS Global Markets Presidents at the time comes off very poorly. This was filled back in 2014 and I’d love to see a recent interview with all three again to see what has happened and if anyone thinks differently. 

The youtube comments are are hilariously accurate and very similar which shows that this basic thought of mine above seems to be shared. 

"Notice how composed Brad and Michael are, while William O'Brien is so quick to interrupt, make accusations, and panicky remarks. It's clear he's back into a corner and he's spewing anything he can to get out."

"FYI, Will O'Brien was fired 4 months after this interview."

"I think the analogy of what happens to an animal when it's cornered by a predator, flailing and thrashing wildly in a last ditch effort to survive, applies perfectly to O'Brien in this segment. Michael and Brad have him cornered, and he's doing his best to thrash his way out of it by misdirection combined with fast, loud, and loaded arguments. This is just the beginning."

    • Charting the Markets: 4 October FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq breaking higher as bulls return to the fold. EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at Y145 again. And Brent crude oil and gold rally on falling US dollar and US natural gas prices.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • GBP/USD - PRICES, CHARTS, AND ANALYSIS Sterling rallying hard as gilt market turmoil subsides. There remain plenty of Sterling headwinds. A big shift in GBP positioning as net-longs are slashed and net-shorts jump. Sterling is pushing higher against the US dollar, and has made back all of its recent ‘mini-budget’ sell-off, as the greenback fades lower. The recent turn lower in US Treasury yields, sparked by fears that the US central bank is moving interest rates too high, too fast, has helped to stall the multi-month sell-off in cable. The pair are now back at the March 2020 swing-low around 1.1410, a level that stalled price action prior to the collapse   Oct 4, 2022  Nick Cawley, Strategist | DailyFX
