I feel these silk suited mafia types should land in jail and rub elbows with their own kind, even if they are the dregs that steal small amounts. The amount makes no difference, its the act that makes the difference. If you are a thief of any amount, you are classless and soul-less and have no business rubbing elbows with real Human beings. You belong in the prison system and should never be let out until too old to start over again.
Sorry, just another thing that makes me mad. This team does a good job of reporting on complex market issues and they make it understandable for the average person such as myself. I appreciate their work and want to encourage them to never give it up. Listen to this video and read and then you decide.
Keiser Report: Institutionalized Stealing: High Frequency Pension Larceny ~ International Banking Cabal Must Be Disgorged!
Posted on April 7, 2014
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss high frequency fraud, picking prices and then filling in the trades to get to that price. In the second half, is the ‘second half’ of Max’s interview with Jim Rickards about his new book, The Death of Money. In this ‘second half’, they talk more about mutually assured financial destruction, the US dollar and the danger of insolvency.The list of markets where big players are cheating the rest of us (and each other) keeps growing. First there was the Libor interest rate, then foreign exchange, then gold. And now comes high-frequency trading (HFT), where Wall Street banks use supercomputers to monitor incoming stock market orders, analyze their likely impact on prices, and place orders ahead of those trades to capture a bit of the price impact.
In an HFT-dominated market, individual investors get fractionally-less-favorable prices, which they seldom notice, while in the aggregate billions of dollars are siphoned each year from retail investors, pension funds and even some hedge funds to big Wall Street banks.

Since this practice adds absolutely nothing to the efficiency of the equity markets, and since “front running” is clearly illegal, HFT is a crime without offsetting social benefits.
But Wall Street gets away with it — and will continue to get away with it — because the major banks and exchanges make a lot of money from it and donate sufficiently to both major parties to buy a degree of immunity.Because HFT is the topic of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book Flash Boys, and Lewis is showing up on mainstream outlets like CNN and Good Morning America where he explains the con in layman’s terms, the powers that be now feel compelled to appear to investigate it.
Like the ongoing probes of Libor, foreign exchange and gold, the result will be more show than substance. A few fines will be paid and possibly a few mid-level quants will be sacrificed, while Wall Street’s bonus pool stays deep and wide.
So HFT’s exposure, rather than being that big a deal in and of itself, should be seen as part of a pattern of systematic corruption, yet another brick in the wall that separates the financial/political/con artist class from the vast bulk of people who are being harvested.

Total Supply Of Maxcoin is very low, almost equal to Bitcoin.
Max interview starts at 3:40min on the time bar.
When a critical mass of people start behaving this way the big systems are starved for capital and begin to fail. Banks go bust, governments run out of money, the currency collapses, etc. That day appears to be coming, and HFT may have given the trend a little added momentum.
