So the GS big yearnings report due Tuesday I think is on the top of the page at the NY Times web page. It would be really dirty pool of them to disappoint. The number is advertised at two billion plus. Which sounds like a lot but if it was taxed at 100% that would cover 3% of what Uncle Sam borrowed, last week.

What you gunna do

When the high frequency trading algorithm comes for you :ph34r:


Just as black holes leak energy, dark pools leak information.

Now the bigger a black hole the less energy is leaked per volume.

Therefore jimbo posits that the larger a dark pool is the less information will be leaked per volume of trades.

Therefore the largest dark pools will be the hardest to game by black box trading programs.

eg the information gained from larger dark pools will be harder to decipher - gives weaker signals to the algorithms at the heart of these black box programs.

Therefore what a large seller of buyer needs is good software that can break down and distribute a large trade amongst as many dark pools as possible.

Thus a virtual mega dark pool is created which leaks the smallest amount of information.

Actually this is probably a good business oportunity for some one to set up a gateway to all the darkpools that will take a trade from participating institutions and break it down and distribute it amongst all the dark pools. It could even aggregate its orders from multiple institutions - then break that aggregate order down randomly amongst multiple dark pools - like a multi layered dark pool - a multiple dark pool - a hybrid of a black box sitting between an agregation of institutions and an agregation of dark pools.

"June 19 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro, concerned that trading on private electronic markets may pose “emerging risks,” said the agency may require firms to disclose more information on their transactions."

So just as buyers and sellers of large blocks of stock are able to escape the vampiric effects of high frequency trading systems, the SEC is about to strip away their refuge from the shake down merchants of fall street - and hand these black boxes a goldmine.
