Greenwich Associates (and I) have for the most part stayed out of the recent high frequency trading debate. Thankfully the discussion has gone (somewhat) beyond whether HFT is good or bad and has moved towards a broader debate around the best market structure for US equity markets. To that end, I participated in this conversation on Bloomberg TV about how best to regulate the equity markets. I voiced two main points: (1) investors are better off today than they've ever been even though (2) the market is way more complicated than it needs to be. For more check out the whole interview (or contact us to discuss).
