Flash Boys, Michael Lewis

After reading Liar’s Poker, I was in NYC bookstore and I couldn’t resist to buy this book.

I’m not an expert on the field, even I do not consider myself an amateur, just a surprised citizen that was around.

I knew what was HFT, the importance of latency, that the market volume was high for HFTs…

But concepts as dark pools, running-front,…. have been a great discovery for me. And anecdotes about real things that have happened to the different flash boys, is some of my prefer parts of the book.
