Today, Securities and Exchange Commission Chairperson Mary Jo White announced a whole slew of initiatives designed to tighten the leash on computerized high speed trading in the stock market. If you're playing the stock market and you're not a supercomputer, that's very good news.
As if stock markets of the world needed any more problems after the recent U.S. credit downgrade and the market catastrophe that followed. Yesterday, trading in seven Hong Kong stocks stopped after the exchange's website was shut down by an attack. Poor poor stock market guys.
