“Flash Trading” may perhaps be no more, luckily.

By: Greg Jackson

Flash orders give a number of traders an advantage in the purchase or sale of their stocks. The benefit is only a instant lead, but it is enough to get the interest of the SEC.

For the next 60 days, the transformation will be up for public commentary and could be adopted by the SEC following that time.

Flash orders are one of those things that from time to time happens in the trading world. They really have started to turn out to be quite a hot issue on Wall Street though due to people asking questions about equality on the Street.

A flash order refers to evident members of exchanges — frequently large corporations — buying and selling information about ongoing stock deals milliseconds preceding to that information being made public. Quite a few big banks and fiscal businesses, using high-speed PC programs, can get a quick, sneak glance at how additional investors are trading, giving them a short-lived peep into the direction of the market.

The further rule up for discussion includes more transparency from credit rating companies. For its position in the subprime mortgage jumble, the industry that performs credit ratings has been mortified. The practices of these businesses (which is made up of Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Service, as well as Fitch Ratings) will be able to be percieved by the public and will also be subject to restraints.

It is not just when some corporations have the capacity to trade before the general public is allowed to do so. When there are specially high speed computers and business information and reports on hand, then of course they will have an tiny advantage. I do not believe that the flash ordering has been accurately helpful to a lot of companies on Wall Street because if you look at how many businesses have performed over the past a small number of months and particularly when you look at the last year, you can tell that they are not exactly doing great. A lot of the banks and fiscal institutions have only remained open only by the kindness of our taxpayer dollars.

I am glad that they might no longer be helped out by any of the cash that I pay the government. I know that the general public of the United States is ready to go after the boards of many of these companies because of all the bonuses that they seem to be bringing in every couple of months; and I have to agree with the population on this one.

These regulations can be seen at the MSNBC article I’ve linked below. I would like to see what the SEC does with the general public commentary over the subsequent two months. In 60 days, we will see how the economy is doing and I am sure that will have some impact on the SEC’s conclusion as to what it is going to do with the new regulations.
