Sunday Fun: Jon Stewart on High Frequency Trading

Jon Stewart is at it again. This time he is working the high frequency trading (HFT) angle. While we should not get our news and information from comedy shows (or from many of the MSM outlets either I suppose), Stewart does a good job here with Samatha Bee as the “cash cow” poking fun at the subject.

But, I do believe that by the time this type of news gets to the Daily Show, it is no longer news. HFT is something that has to be dealt with, but it is the flash trading that needs more attention by regulators.
