Comments on: “Flash crash” report shows how, er, crashes happen http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2010/10/04/flash-crash-report-shows-how-er-crashes-happen/ Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: thedots http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2010/10/04/flash-crash-report-shows-how-er-crashes-happen/comment-page-1/#comment-3967 Tue, 05 Oct 2010 13:11:33 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/columns/?p=4219#comment-3967 The stock market is being manipulated or even hacked. You want to see who caused the flash crash look at the trades coming from Russia and/or China that day. What no one wants to admit is… just like any computer network, the nyse can be compromised. I believe this is a kind of cyber and economic warfare. This will keep happening and the press will keep blaming it on high-frequency trading. This has yet to be verified and according to this report was not the main cause of the flash crash.
