Goldman Sachs Admits Its Software Can “Manipulate Markets in Unfair Ways”

Goldman Sachs says that its program trading software can be used to manipulate markets:

The bank has raised the possibility that there is a danger that somebody who knew how to use this program could use it to manipulate markets in unfair ways.

(and see this).

Given that Goldman obviously knows how to use its own program – which it paid many millions for – isn’t that a virtual admission that Goldman has been manipulating markets?

  • I heard of a guy a few years ago that went on record about a software that could manipulate and HIDE traces of market manipulation. he is out of job now and dirt poor- he was fairly rich and succesfull business manager untill he found this software to be doing something illegal and reported it to his boss.. it's a long story, a MP3 audio file, maybe someone know what i am thinking of?

  • Read somewhere that GS controls about 40% of all NYSE trades. Maybe it's time to restore Glass-Steagall.
