Dark Pools

Dark PoolsI’ve been reading Dark Pools, by Scott Patterson over the weekend and I’ve got to say that it has been the most thoroughly educating introduction to the wild and confusing world that is electronic equity trading. I’ve really had my head in the futures and options sand for way too long. No longer.

The whole experience has inspired me to spend my weekend working on writing an Interactive Brokers adapter to SD Gatekeeeper. When it’s finished, my customers will be able to trade a HUGE VARIETY of financial products instead of just futures and options, provided of course that they open an account with IB. More details to come when it actually launches!
