NY AG reportedly probing dark pools

  • Goldman Sachs (GS -0.2%), Barclays (BCS -1%), and Credit Suisse (CS -1.2%) are among the banks NY Attorney General Schneidermann has requested information from about their use of dark pools, reports Dow Jones.
  • Dark pools are systems set up by the banks to allow clients to trade large blocks of stock outside of the major exchanges.
  • Earlier this year, Goldman sent out checks to clients after discovering errors in trades in its Sigma X dark pool - the world's largest -  from back in 2011. It was also reported that Goldman was considering selling Sigma X, a move management has denied.

    It is about time to shutdown those dark pools that have enabled front running by those HFTs.
