"Flash Boys"

"60 Minutes" did an excellent segment on "Flash Boys" a week and a half ago: http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/is-the-us ... et-rigged/

There was a bull session just after the book was released last week on CNBC: http://blogs.marketwatch.com/thetell/20 ... am-obrien/

It should be interesting whether the FBI or SEC are able to achieve any indictments against the high frequency traders or brokerages that have been implicated in front running, "skimming" or scalping orders.
