I found this 50 minute documentary about the rather hidden world of high frequency trading and genius algorithm builder Haim Bodeg (also known as The Algo Arms Dealer) very interesting.

I think Thomas Peterffy is a really cool guy. I really like his mellow, intelligent style. And how can you not like someone who’s spending millions of dollars of his own money to broadcast ads warning against creeping socialism? It’s way too late for that in the United States and the money was therefore completely wasted but I certainly admire his effort.
