Marketplace Tech is exploring investment technology as part of the Divided Decade project on the financial crisis of 2008. Brad Katsuyama started a new stock exchange, IEX, in 2012, with an aim to neutralize some impacts of high-frequency trading. He and his partners did that by slowing down stock data flowing through the system — by a whole 350 millionths of a second. In 2017, one of IEX's critics, the New York Stock Exchange, introduced its own speed bump. The following is part two of Marketplace Tech's look at IEX, an edited transcript of Molly Wood's conversation with Brad Katsuyama. He...
When you conjure an image of the stock market, it's likely the tumultuous floor on Wall Street with traders holding a phone to either ear, scrambling and yelling. But computer algorithms make most trades today, within fractions of a second, and you could say the real NYSE action is in Mahwah, New Jersey, where its data center sits. Marketplace Tech is exploring investment technology as part of the Divided Decade project on the financial crisis of 2008. In the first of two installments, we hear from critics of HFT and its effect on the markets overall.
High-frequency trading relies on algorithms,...
Here at Marketplace, we're doing a yearlong project on the 10-year anniversary of the financial crisis called Divided Decade. At the center of it, of course, were dodgy housing loans that were packaged and resold as seemingly solid investments. They were known as mortgage-backed securities. Here's where the tech comes in: Back in the '90s, a guy named Michael Osinski and his wife, Isabel, wrote software that made it super simple to bundle loans into a security. Osinski retired from Wall Street eight years before the recession to farm oysters on Long Island, where he rode out the financial collapse...
New digital copyright laws pushed forward by the European Parliament this week would make platforms like Google, Facebook and YouTube share more of their profits with creators, news organizations, musicians and artists. The laws would make them take more aggressive steps to filter copyrighted material. But critics, including YouTubers, say the law is so broad that it could lead to widespread censorship and even kill off internet memes. Molly Wood talks through the issues with Joanna Plucinska, a tech reporter for Politico Europe. The following is an edited transcript of their conversation.
Joanna Plucinska: What this law would compel is that more of...
We are still at least 15 years away from the first human mission to Mars — that’s at the earliest. But that hasn't stopped Hollywood from skipping ahead to the future. Hulu, the online streaming service, is out with a new series tomorrow called "The First." It's set in the 2030s and, as the name implies, it imagines the first human mission to the Red Planet. Now, in addition to getting the astrophysics right, the show producers had to get the future right. And, for that they called a futurist. Amy Webb is founder of the Future Today Institute. She...
Most people are looking at the new iPhones and thinking about the camera performance, the size of the screen, the notch situation. But we nerds here at Marketplace Tech will be thinking about the semiconductor. Yeah, many people will probably ignore the part in Apple's new gadgets announcement today about the A12 processor and what a big difference it's going to make for speed, performance and battery life. But these guts are actually what set Apple apart — and ahead — of other smartphone makers, because Apple designs its own semiconductors for all its mobile devices. Anshel Sag is a...
