Fox Business Channel - Aug. 3 - Pete Kyle, Charles E. Smith Professor of Finance, discussed the near collapse of Knight Capital in a live studio segment (video not available). His analysis summary: “The problem was not a trading algorithm which malfunctioned, but rather order-handling software which was not appropriately tested before implementation. As a result, it was entirely possible that Knight's customers submitted reasonable accurate orders into Knight's system based on their own trading algorithms. But the system may have malfunctioned, for example, by executing the orders too fast or executing the wrong quantities. Thus, this was probably more of an IT problem and not a problem with trading algorithms associated with, say, high frequency trading.”
