INTERVIEW - Knight CEO Tom Joyce Explains What Went Wrong And How His Firm Lost $440 Million In 30 Minutes

Knight Capital CEO Thomas Joyce on Bloomberg yesterday. Pretty impressive interview given that NITE stock is down from 13 to below 3 in 24 hours, clients and counterparties have deserted the company, and the $440 million lost in 30 minutes of program trading gone hellishly wrong represents 4 years of profits for Knight.

The culprit - a new piece of proprietary Knight software for the NYSE that was installed Tuesday night without being tested first.  As a result, in the worst-case scenario, Knight Capital might be forced to shut down.  And honestly, it couldn't happen to a more deserving and more corrupt market maker.  Fifteen years of constant bid/offer manipulation from these crooks.  I can say with complete confidence that there will not be many tears shed across the trading community if and when Knight disappears.

Here's the latest:

Obama’s Golf Buddy: ‘Businesses Doing Extremely Well’


A day after he left the Swiss bank, Robert Wolf appeared Thursday on CNBC's "Squawk Box," defending his golf buddy's attempt to win re-election to the White House.

There are many bright spots in the economy, he told CNBC, adding that for every Obama foe like Donald Trump, there's a supporter like Warren Buffett.

Wolf, 50, is an unabashed backer of the president and is among the top money bundlers for Obama.

In June, The New York Times reported that he had raised more than $500,000 for the re-election campaign.
