Présentation de l'éditeur

Michael Lewis, the Master of the Big Story, is back with Flash Boys



If you thought Wall Street was about alpha males standing in trading pits hollering at each other, think again. That world is dead.



Now, the world's money is traded by computer code, inside black boxes in heavily guarded buildings. Even the experts entrusted with your cash don't know what's happening to it. And the very few who do aren't about to tell - because they're making a killing.



This is a market that's rigged, out of control and out of sight; a market in which the chief need is for speed; and in which traders would sell their grandmothers for a microsecond. Blink, and you'll miss it.



In Flash Boys, Michael Lewis tells the explosive story of how one group of ingenious oddballs and misfits set out to expose what was going on. It's the story of what it's like to declare war on some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. It's about taking on an entire system. And it's about the madness that has taken hold of the financial markets today.



You won't believe it until you've read it.



'I read Michael Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. I'll never play like that. But it's good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like' - Malcolm Gladwell



'Probably the best current writer in America' - Tom Wolfe



Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics. He has written several books including the New York Times bestsellers Liar's Poker, widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s, Boomerang and The Big Short, 'probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written' (Reuters). Lewis is contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and also writes for Vanity Fair and Portfolio magazine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Brief Summary and Review 8 avril 2014
Format:Relié
The thrust: Over the past 20 years, and particularly in the past decade, the stock market has undergone some significant changes. The most visible change is that much of the action has now become computerized. For example, whereas stock markets used to consist of trading floors (pits), where floor traders swapped stocks back and forth, we now have computer servers where sellers and buyers are connected automatically. Now, on the one hand, this automation has led to some substantial efficiencies, as once necessary financial intermediaries have now largely become obsolete (this has led to savings not only because the old intermediaries earned an honest commission for their dealings, but because their privileged position sometimes led to corruption).

It is not that the new stock market has done away with intermediaries entirely. Take brokers, for example. Brokers are still used by large investors to help them move large chunks of stock where the market may not be able to fill the order immediately. The brokers take some risk in this action, and provide liquidity in doing so, since they help move capital to its most useful location, and thus brokers still provide a very useful service.

While brokers have always existed, the new stock market has also added a new breed of intermediary. This new breed of intermediary is known as the high frequency trader (HFT). The high frequency trader operates on speed, relying on location and advanced communications technology to learn about the movement of the market before others, and uses this knowledge to make winning trades.

To give you an indication of how important high frequency trading has become, consider that at least half of the trades now being made in the United States are coming from high frequency traders.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My first M.Lewis 24 juillet 2014
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
C'est le premier ouvrage de M.L. que je lis, et je n'ai pas été déçu.
Ce livre est très bien écrit
Il permet de se plonger au coeur de Wall Street, et de se sentir dans la peau d'un "Kind Wolf of Wall Street".
Les personnages, bien réels, débordent d'imagination et de talent, qualités requises pour élucider le mystère du HFT....
Je recommande aux passionnés de la finance, mais pas seulement.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Un excellent documentaire, mais trop long 11 juin 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Lewis nous met dans la peau des gentils : ils vont devoir découvrir la source de leurs problèmes, comprendre les subtilités des jeux des différents acteurs et imaginer une solution bonne pour eux comme pour la société.
Malheureusement, consacrer autant de temps à lire ce livre impose qu'on en délaisse beaucoup d'autres.
Lewis nous aurait autant appris et intéressés avec deux fois moins de pages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jubilatoire, et tellement choquant ! 17 mai 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Où l'on comprend pourquoi il n'y a rien a attendre de la finance américaine. Il faudra prendre les armes ! Et compter sur des héros improbables, avant qu'ils ne soient éliminés. Merveilleux livre.
