An intriguing look at how technology is changing financial markets, from an innovator on the frontlines of this revolution

Nerds on Wall Street tells the tale of the ongoing technological transformation of the world's financial markets. The impact of technology on investing is profound, and author David Leinweber provides readers with an overview of where we were just a few short years ago, and where we are going. Being a successful investor today and tomorrow--individual or institutional--involves more than stock picking, asset allocation, or market timing: it involves technology. And Leinweber helps readers go beyond the numbers to see exactly how this technology has become more responsible for managing modern markets. In essence, the financial game has changed and will continue to change due entirely to technology. The new "players," human or otherwise, offer investors opportunities and dangers. With this intriguing and entertaining book, Leinweber shows where technology on Wall Street has been, what it has meant, and how it will impact the markets of tomorrow.

"..Leinweber helps readers go beyond the numbers to see exactly how this technology has become more responsible for managing modern markets.."

I really hate these sham books which seek to mislead and misinform! Really, High Frequency Trading (HFT) is neither responsible or a help to modern markets, simply the latest financial fraud tool. Ditto for proprietary trading, and fixed deals like the Abacus CDO designed-to-fail deal from John Paulson's hedge fund (and Alan Greenspan) and Goldman Sachs, and similar deals by Magnetar Capital, and so on. This book is a farce!
