Knight Capital Group Inc. KCG: NYSE; Financials/Investment Services OTHER EXCHANGES: Paris, Paris, More » Brendan Mcdermid/Reuters Updated: Aug. 6, 2012 Knight Capital Group is a global financial services company, with headquarters in Jersey City, N.J. Knight Capital was founded in 1995 and went public in 1998 after quickly becoming one of the largest middle men, or market makers, in the stock market. Knight founded DirectEdge, a company that is now the fourth-largest stock exchange operator in the United States. Knight sold stakes in DirectEdge to other Wall Street firms and now owns only a minority stake in the company. On Aug. 1, 2012, right after the markets opened, a software glitch at Knight rapidly moved the stocks of 148 companies. The trades pushed the value of many stocks up, and the company had to sell the overvalued shares back into the market at a lower price. The New York Stock Exchange received most of the mistaken orders, but all of the nation’s exchanges executed trades for Knight and ...

That process has already begun. In particular, I have asked the staff to accelerate ongoing efforts to propose a rule to require exchanges and other market centers to have specific programs in place to ensure the capacity and integrity of their systems. And I have directed the staff to convene a roundtable in the common weeks to discuss further steps that can be taken to address these critical issues."

The New York Times Top Stories - August 2, 2012 Flood of Errant Trades Is a Black Eye for Wall Street By NATHANIEL POPPER An automated stock trading program suddenly flooded the market with millions of trades Wednesday morning, spreading turmoil across Wall Street and drawing renewed attention to the fragility and instability of the nation’s stock markets. While the broad stock indexes quickly recovered and ended the day slightly down, it was the latest black eye for the financial markets. The runaway trading suggests that regulators have not been able to keep up with electronic programs that increasingly dominate the supercharged market and have helped undermine investor confidence in stocks. Traders on Wednesday said that a rogue algorithm repeatedly bought and sold millions of shares of companies like RadioShack, Best Buy, Bank of America and American Airlines, sending trading volume surging. While the trading firm involved blamed a “technology issue,” the company and regulators were still trying ...
headline regarding the trading hick up caused by Knight Capital Group is of no surprise to me. The beginning of the apocalypse could easily start by the destruction of the stock market through deuling computer trading systems, kicking into a correlated trading algorithm which basically causes the flash crash of 2010, but much worse. No one should be putting their money in the stock market thinking that its a safe place for long term investment. It's only a place to put your money if you have a black box trading algorithm making taking those thousands of trades a second... (I'm working on mine...)
"Traders immediately pointed fingers at one of Wall Street’s most powerful brokerage firms, Knight Capital Group, speculating that a “rogue algorithm” kept buying or selling millions of shares of companies for 30 minutes, sending their shares soaring or plunging. The Jersey City-based company said in a statement that “a technology issue occurred” in the division of the company that uses computer algorithms to buy and sell stocks from other market participants."
