There appears to be sparse books about market making and specialists. Any recommendations? I am not looking to be a market maker. However, I would like to know about market making for the sake of knowing more about market behavior and influence --really, just the basic market mechanics that are overlooked. Any markets will do. While I am at it, I doubt there are many books about market manipulation since this is usually a hush-hush topic, are there any kind of introductory material/report about this zany behavior without the conspiracy nuttery?
