Knight Capital's Bad Week In Tweets



August 10, 2012 Last week one of the most respected and tech-savvy investment firms unleashed a new trading algorithm that went, in a word, haywire.

Traders inside Knight Capital had to scramble to undo the damage as managers sought emergency financing to cover the resulting losses of $440 million after 45-minutes of out-of-control trading. Advanced Trading has gathered the most pointed and revealing posts on Twitter about the Knight Capital debacle. It wasn’t pretty.
