The Fear Index

Fictional Thriller Tackles Dangers of High-Frequency Trading

This is an excellent Paul Solman NewsHour piece on both high frequency (algorithmic/machine) trading on Wall Street and the author Robert Harris’ new book The Fear Index. Fascinating and scary and you know a movie is going to be made or is in the process of being made. Robert Harris wrote the book The Ghost Writer which was made into an excellent movie directed by Roman Polanski.

By the way, if you’ve not seen the movie Margin Call I recommend it highly.
