I read in Trader magazine that Goldman Sachs has gotten to the point of matching up 50% of the NYSE trades. Like, are they going to take over the NYSE? It appears that they get a bird's eye view of the orders coming and going. Who regulates them? Are they a bunch of glorified thugs in three-piece suits pulling down civilization-depleting 9-figure annual paydays? Where are the market check(s) and balances here? I can all-but-guarantee you that their top earners, collectively, are not providing value to the globe commensurate to their compensation.
