Summary

Dark Pools is the pacy, revealing, and profoundly chilling tale of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots – many so self-directed that humans can’t predict what they’ll do next.
It’s the story of the blisteringly intelligent computer programmers behind the rise of these ‘bots’. And it’s a timely warning that as artificial intelligence gradually takes over, we could be on the verge of global meltdown.

Much better than Flash Boys

As a participant in the field of automated trading over the last 15 years, I found this far more balanced, interesting, accurate and less emotive than "Flash Boys".

Educational insight

An interesting insight into the very technical world of quant trading that so many retail day traders struggle to understand. A great read if you know nothing of algo trading.
