Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt

Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt40. Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt by Michael Lewis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If you invest in the stock market or want to know more about how it works, you should read this book.

It's an inside look at how messed up the market is, mostly by design and who's designing it. You'll learn about dark pools, high frequency traders, and the value of milli- and microseconds.

You'll also learn about some men from Wall Street who actually have consciences and a desire to fix the market so it's fair. Look into trading via IEX for an experience that's not rigged against individual investors.

    1. It's well written with a lot of stories to explain the technical nuances and how people figured them out. Definitely worth the time. :)
