Wyatt Research Week-in-Review: May 5-11

We contemplated the secret to beating high-frequency trading. And we shined the spotlight on the real hero of “Flash Boys,” Brad Katsuyama.

We also continued to give away free copies of “Flash Boys” to our loyal readers. To get a copy of your own, click here.
