Sticky Sweet Danegeld ....... An Art of CyberWar Stabilising Staple
"What we see with the new ultrafast computer algorithms is predatory trading. In this case, the predator acts before the prey even knows it's there.
"There are relatively few things that an ultrafast algorithm will do," Johnson continued. "This means that they are more likely to start adopting the same behavior, and hence form a cyber crowd or cyber mob which attacks a certain part of the market. This is what gives rise to the extreme events that we observe. Our math model is able to capture this collective behavior by modeling how these cyber mobs behave".
Fundamental Correction: There are relatively few things that an ultrafast algorithm will not do.
Oh, and good luck, Johnson, with "Our math model is able to capture this collective behavior by modeling how these cyber mobs behave"
Do you work for a bank and can you shed any light on the use of high-speed banking algorithms? Get in touch in confidence and let us know.
Is that El Reg requesting intel on how to crash high-speed banking and allied high frequency trading systems and the markets/fiat capitalism? Bravo, El Reg, …. boldly going into new fields of novel journalistic endeavour which is sure to attract spooky attention to Greater IntelAIgent Game participation/partisans/artisans should they have what it takes to exercise future remote virtually anonymous autonomous lead[s]. :-)
I suppose you do realise that one can earn and be worth an absolute fortune in an instant by simply agreeing to not disclose the key precursor program elements and be active as a sort of poacher turned gamekeeper watchdog in the field.

I hope you do not condone such an attack. We need banks. They also pay well if you work for them. I am all for the banking system myself. I would hope you are too. What do you want, to keep your money in mattress in your flat? Get real.

The problem with banks is that they do not presently employ the best intelligence in their operations, CE. And that causes them untold unlimited problems for which they have no solutions ...... Stagnation and petrification in status quo situations and systems are a result of the wrong folk and their support machines being in charge of events at the top of the supply and administration tree. ..... http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2013/09/13/continuous_delivery_can_it_really_join_up_ops_and_dev/#c_1957680

Do you suggest that a corrupt and corrupting perverse system should be immune from attack and constructive disruptive change, CE? Methinks that be not wise.
