As you read this, I’m somewhere on the road between central Oregon and Seattle. We’re on another big road trip, the family 4Runner packed and both Mrs. Concord & Mini-Concord in tow. Such is the magic of auto-publishing.
I wrote this newsletter last week. It isn’t time sensitive. But today’s topic is still incredibly important — probably more important than the usual macroeconomic stuff we discuss. This is about the very structure of the markets on which the whole world trades.
I’ll get to all that in just a sec, but first, follow me on Twitter if you haven’t yet. I’ll tweet a few pictures this weekend of the Concord family doing something cool in downtown Seattle or the Oregon coast. Also, if you have a suggestion on something fun for the family to do while we’re in the Northwest, hit me up on Twitter for that too. Or use our speedy contact form.
Honestly, I’m not very good at Twitter. So the good news is that I won’t clutter up your feed. But it’s a great way to get news and have quick conversations in the public space. Now that I’ve figured out how to filter the signal from the noise, I really enjoy it and love how Twitter compliments the different ways that I use Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram. I’m a slave to shiny new technologies, though, and an undying optimist when it comes to the ways technology can make the world a better, or at least more interesting, place.
Let’s get to it with today’s action-packed double title!
A Book Review of Dark Pools by Scott Patterson
Or, a rant about high frequency trading and a few things we can do to solve the problems created by HFT.
To cut straight to the chase, the book is fantastic.
