It was Goldman Sachs that took over Knight Capital's (KCG) positions following the software glitch on Wednesday, a faux-pas that ended up costing Knight $440M.

    I'll lend them $440 in cash, but I'm afraid it won't be enough. $KCG is up today on all the people willing to lend them $440 in cash.

    How in the heck does GS make $440M for covering 45 minutes of trading and KCG loses $440M in the same time? The SEC needs to investigate these goings on!!!!

    I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Goldman was involved in that glitch.

    Well, TD and Scottrade loses respect with resuming operations with such a scam.

     

    GS and BoA are looking to bid or take advantage. They all want in on the HFT technology and want more of it obviously. This is a disaster for people like me who try hard to make an honest buck.
