Is The SEC Finally Standing Up To The Wall Street Fraudsters? | HFT Expert Joe Saluzzi


Recently I ran a replay video of my earlier interview with Joe Saluzzi covering how high frequency trading works — and underscoring how it disadvantages & preys upon the unsuspecting retail investor.

I ran that video because after years of seemingly turning a blind eye to the exploitation of our financial system by HFTs, the SEC has just proposed a sweeping set of rule changes designed to better level the playing field.

Since the SEC posted its proposed market structure reforms for public feedback, Joe has been busy plowing through all 1,600 pages of them to make sense of it

all for us.

In this video, we hear his assessment.

Unfair Markets: HFT Algos Are Fierce Predators & We Are The Prey


In last week’s interview with Bill Fleckenstein, he suggested we soon bring on an expert in high frequency trading algorithms (HFTs).

And from the resulting spike in comments, it appears that many of you viewers are strongly interested in this idea, too.

Well, you asked — and we’re delivering.

I sat down with market mechanics expert Joe Saluzzi for his latest update on how HFTs have changed the way markets operate (vs the old days when trading was done by

actual humans).

In Joe’s opinion, most of those changes have been unfair and at the expense of the regular investor.

HFTs now operate at sub-second speeds we can’t see or comprehend. Even the regulators are often blind to what’s going on.

As Joe states: HFTs are the predators in the markets these days. And we are their prey, whether we realize it or not.

For the details on the hidden universe of HFTs & how to protect yourself against them, watch our new interview with Joe Saluzzi.
