As we were reminded on Monday, all of the recommendations emanating from the 2010 Flash Crash were ignored. Wall Street's stooges in government doing what they are paid not to do. The stoned Idiocracy took this latest meltdown as a buying opportunity...
Following the Flash Crash of May 6, 2010 investor confidence was shaken. Congress launched an inquiry, books like the one above were written and nothing changed of course. The Idiocracy doesn't believe in accountability. This year, they finally arrested a single day trader living in the basement of his parents' London home, because he alone caused a $1 trillion dollar meltdown.
The even bigger Flash Crash that just occurred on Monday, just led to buying recommendations all around.
