Episode 359

­Every week Max Keiser looks at all the scandal behind the financial news headlines.

In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss high-frequency trading being declared ‘beneficial’ by a scientist working for the UK government, while on the other side of the pond a US regulator blames it for wild volatility and compares it to ‘Texas Hold ‘Em – Time to Fold ‘Em.’ In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to tax expert Lee Sheppard about high-frequency trading, a financial transaction tax and how siphoning gasoline from a neighbor’s gas tank doesn’t make you a market-maker.
