Barclays Faces New York Lawsuit Over Dark Pool and High-Frequency Trading - WILLIAM ALDEN
-> http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2014/06/25/ ... ark-pools/

Quote:
The top law enforcer in New York State, Eric T. Schneiderman, filed civil fraud charges on Wednesday against Barclays over its private stock trading platform, contending that it favored high-frequency traders over other investors.

Mr. Schneiderman, the state attorney general, accused Barclays of falsely representing the concentration of high-frequency traders in its private trading platform, known as a dark pool. He also claimed the British bank had falsified marketing materials and misrepresented a service that purported to protect investors from predatory trading behavior.

The lawsuit, which was filed in New York State Supreme Court, seeks to compel Barclays to forfeit the profits gained through its actions and pay an unspecified amount of damages.

Parasite Turns On Parasite: HFT Sues Other HFTs For "Egregious Manipulation" Of Treasury Securities - -> http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-1 ... y-securiti

There was a time when those who dared to call out the massive Libor manipulation conspiracy (such as what Zero Hedge did with one of its first posts in 2009) for being a massive Libor manipulation conspiracy some 4 years before the "theory" became a fact, were branded as scaremongering, fringe voices, best to be ignored. Then, of course, once the "theory" became "fact" it suddenly was perfectly obvious to everyone in retrospect.

But the bigger question, and what stumped the so-called experts, is how could something so vast, with so many moving pieces, remain a secret for as long as it did.

The answer is extremely simple: everyone who was in on the "secret" was also benefiting from it: from the lowliest Libor rigger to the CEO of Barclays and every other major bank, they all knew what was going on, but also knew that if the information became public knowledge, the jig would be up, and everyone's benefits would evaporate with some even going to jail (at least in a hypothetical legal system in which bankers actually go to jail). In other words, it was merely a case where everyone's interest was aligned to maintain the conspiracy cartel as long as possible.
