#1 New York Times Bestseller — With a new Afterword
"Guaranteed to make blood boil." —Janet Maslin, New York Times
In Michael Lewis's game-changing bestseller, a small group of Wall Street iconoclasts realize that the U.S. stock market has been rigged for the benefit of insiders. They band together—some of them walking away from seven-figure salaries—to investigate, expose, and reform the insidious new ways that Wall Street generates profits. If you have any contact with the market, even a retirement account, this story is happening to you.
Intrigue and Meat
Enough technical meat to keep my mind turning and involved and enough plot to make my arm hairs stand on end at the end.
A must read!
Entertaining, fantastic read. Many thanks to both the author and crew at IEX.
Read this and if you own stock; in your portfolio, 401K, or any where else; be angry - be very angry. If you believe holding the 1% accountable is class warfare this will confirm that belief, but in the opposite direction.
Do you pass by a penny when you see it on the street? This book documents how high-speed traders steal from you every time you make a trade, and there is nothing you can do about it. When the high-speed traders take your pennies their billions take care of themselves.
This is a page turner of a story. Once you start it you will want to keep going until you've accounted for all your pennies.
