The Wall Street Code | VPRO documentary | 2013

#Battle of the quants #The Algo Arms Dealer #docu #Alchemists of Wall Street #News & Politics
A thriller about a genius algorithm builder who dared to stand up against Wall Street. Haim Bodek, aka The Algo Arms Dealer. After Quants: the Alchemists of Wall Street and Money & Speed: Inside the Black Box. This is the final episode of a trilogy in search of the winners and losers of the tech revolution on Wall Street. Trading on the financial market is not longer dominated by humans, but by super fast computers and algorithms. The result of this digital revolution on Wall Street is a complex and fragmented financial system that is hard to understand and overseen. A system that we are all connected to. The only people who understand the system a bit, are the people who built it.
Haim Bodek started his own high frequency trading in 2007 and built a from his point of view perfect and fast algorithm. One day it just stopped working. Profits disappeared en he went looking for the cause. He decided to go public with his search to display the rotten system..

"A lot of people copy me, sure, but thats ok, it moves the world forward"

by Patrick Mercader 1 year ago

For those who want to dig further into what is now known as the "order type controversy", I have posted links to the major news articles and associated media on my web page. It has been a long slog since the news first hit in early 2012! Quick Update (4/2016): Bats/ Direct Edge settled the order type allegations with the SEC in Jan 2015. It was the largest fine against an exchange in US history.

At ~34:15, it mentions the sheer amount of money that "evaporated" during the flash crash in 2010. Wealth does not evaporate. That wealth was transferred to the people shearing the sheep.

Makes me long for the good old days when pirates used swords and cannons, rather than algorithms.

Those people and their mad trading machines are nothing more than parastes on real life.

by Dragan Stankoviฤ‡ 1 year ago

I spent five years trying to figure out how to trade for a living. Eventually, I honed in on a hedged options-selling strategy that returned 20% every year for three years...then I burned out from the stress of worrying about the volatility that I'm convinced is the result of algorithmic trading--enough of the quants have the same ideas, so that intraday moves are exaggerated by them all piling onto the trend. This documentary, and all of the insiders who participated, really prove what I already knew (to some extent). I can say for certain that this is no conspiracy theory, because I spent enough time trading to know that the markets are, in some ways, rigged.

Same old saying goes here: The less transparent the market and the more complicated the securities, the more money the seller is going to make on you.

This is an amazing documentary. It is a must watch for all financial professionals and those who are fascinated by financial wizardry.
