    Code of Conduct

    Trading (or stealing) on milliseconds

    This is mind-blowing: someone has exploited the difference between the speed of fiber-optic communications and speed-of-light communications to make a market killing! I'm not kidding:

    Last Wednesday, the Fed announced that it would not be tapering its bond buying program. This news was released at precisely 2 p.m. in Washington "as measured by the national atomic clock." It takes seven milliseconds for this information to get to Chicago. However, several huge orders that were based on the Fed's decision were placed on Chicago exchanges two to three milliseconds after 2 p.m.
    How did they do it? No one knows yet, but it's doubtful it was a slick technical exploitation of the speed of photons or electrons. My best guess is someone had a program ready to go to do the trading for whichever way things went, and somehow got the information to a second party so they could set it up to fall within that communications speed discrepancy so they could look innocent about was technically apparently legal but in truth an immoral exploitation of the system.

    Of course, there are other questions to think about, but I'm most interested in how they really did it.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Re: Trading (or stealing) on milliseconds

    1. Someone had prior knowledge through inside information.
    2. Someone had an inside link between Fed computers and theirs either through collusion or hacking.
    3. Someone made a lucky guess.


    Human interaction is simply not possible when you are talking milliseconds and I doubt number 3. Something sounds fishy. In addition to a press release and announcement, how else is the information released?

    ^ it's 1)

    while high-speed, low latency trading IS million market (they dish out big sums to get lines that are just 1ms faster than the previous one), there is no way that this happened purely due to a technical exploit.
