The whole thing seems very odd.
Surely if he had that much access to cash to create a move of that size then he would have invested in more than a semi detached.

A judge decided today not to lower the bail for the guy that was arrested for having caused the flash crash. Bail was set at 5M pounds, and apparently he couldn't cough that up, so he asked the court to lower it.

If he really is unable to pay 5 million, they definitely have the wrong guy :lol:

They have frozen all of his funds haven't they? I think its absolutely disgraceful that this guy might be put in jail whereas banks are just fined for fx/libor manipulation and the traders get away with it...

The court forced him to disclose the whereabouts of his money and was told he had funds of more than £30m, £25.5m of it in Swiss accounts.

Not sure if this has been posted but really good write up on the HFT, looking to change a few of my programs now.

(The bit on cancel rates is interesting as well)
