Here is a great article (considering it’s bbc) regarding the next pending flash crash of the markets no thanks to algo trading (High Frequency Trading – HFT).
Algo trading is also called automated trading, black-box trading, whitebox trading and robo trading. These trades have no human intervention and account for up to 70% of the markets worldwide. Scary stuff considering over $2 trillion is traded on forex… daily (this figure could be as high as $4trillion.. a day). A glitch in the matrix could have devastating consequences as we saw during the flash crash of May 6, 2010, affectionately called The Crash of 2:45

Washington chanting jingoistic American slogans, waving their flags like
the members of some cult, praising the death of another human being,
reveals yet another layer of this sickness we call modern society. Read more…
Perhaps the recent events of Thailand and Greece are the beginnings of the next phase in the NWO agenda.
In Thailand, the Thai people have become disillusioned with the political process that has been so called ‘democracy’, and want to depose their corrupt PM, as a result the gov’t are taking the stance; use deadly force to control the dissent. Over 85 dead and thousands injured. A class war, and possibly a civil war is on the brink of breaking out in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The majority of red shirts are rural farmers with little or no money.
Then of course we have Greece which has far wider ramifications, namely that the rest of Europe will soon follow suit. Ireland is another example of a country that’s gone to the dogs.
