Knight Capital, the firm founded by Kenneth Pasternak and Walter Raquet back in 1995, had seen its fortunes change as U.S. regulators made a series of changes in the structure of financial markets and computers were progressively expanding their share of trading. The Flash Crash, the infamous 1,000 point drop of the DJIA on May 6, 2010 (the largest one-day point decline in history), illustrated how market structure problems could almost instantaneously cascade from one market participant to the rest. On December 19, 2012, the board decided to accept an acquisition proposal from GETCO rather than Virtu Financial. For GETCO, acquiring Knight Capital represented a gigantic fast forward step. For Knight Capital, it was the end of its wild ride as an independent entity.

Edgar Perez's Literary Sensation Knightmare on Wall Street Best Reviewed Kindle Book on Amazon in 2013

Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders, and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop, Introduces Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, a Behind-the-scenes Look at Knight Capital's 17 years of Tumultuous Existence as an Independent Company.

New York, NY, USA (December 26, 2013) -- Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, the fascinating account of what it took to elevate Knight Capital to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, is now the most favorably reviewed Kindle edition book on Amazon in 2013, with an average rating of 5 out of five stars.

As reviewed by Seeking Alpha's Sanjeev Sharma, the plot of Knightmare on Wall Street (http://www.KnightmareonWallStreet.com), revolves around the story of one large financial firm, Knight Capital Group. The author gives the details of firm's operations and depicts the efforts and ambitions driving the firm's success. He gives a minute by minute detail of the famous incident and explains the reasons and events behind it.

"The company was nearly bankrupt after it gave mistaken U.S. equity orders due to an improperly installed software that later malfunctioned. The erroneous trading caused volume to dramatically spike and prices to wrongly change in more than a hundred securities listed on the U.S. stock exchanges. Knight could avoid bankruptcy as six Wall Street firms, GETCO, Blackstone, Jefferies, Stephens, Stifel Financial and TD Ameritrade, provided a capital infusion for its solvency after the mistake. The author's style is imaginative, and keeps the reader's interest alive throughout the book. It will surely be interesting and useful, particularly for those who follow or are interested in the world of finance. I think the book is a great read, and would recommend it."

The firm, founded by Kenneth Pasternak and Walter Raquet in 1995, had seen its fortunes change as U.S. regulators made a series of changes in the structure of financial markets and computers were progressively expanding their share of trading. The Flash Crash, the infamous 1,000 point drop of the DJIA on May 6, 2010 (the largest one-day point decline in history), illustrated how market structure problems could almost instantaneously cascade from one market participant to the rest.

Thomas Joyce, CEO of Knight Capital since 2002 and an unapologetic advocate of electronic trading, had been scornful of those companies that struggled to keep up with ever-changing stock markets. So it was certainly shocking that at 9:30 A.M. on August 1, 2012, right after the markets opened for the day, Knight Capital began issuing an unprecedented number of erroneous orders into the market, due to an error in installing new software. No rogue trader or regulatory change; operational risk was passing the bill to Knight Capital and becoming the biggest risk in the financial markets.

Knight Capital announced later a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

While Knight Capital was back in the game, its limping recovery quickly prompted hungry competitors to bid for the entire company. On December 19, 2012, the board decided to accept an acquisition proposal from GETCO rather than Virtu Financial. For GETCO, acquiring Knight Capital represented a gigantic fast forward step. For Knight Capital, it was the end of its wild ride as an independent entity.

Knightmare on Wall Street Said to Scare Bitcoin Digital Currency Market From $1000 to 10 in 2013

Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders, and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop, Introduces Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, a Behind-the-scenes Look at Knight Capital's 17 years of Tumultuous Existence as an Independent Company.

New York, NY, USA (December 24, 2013) -- As indicated by The New York Times' Nick Bilton, bitcoin, the digital currency that has captured attention around the world, exploded. By November, it had skyrocketed from a fraction of a penny to $1,242, roughly the price of an ounce of gold. It has been a wild, wild ride: up and down, down and up. Everyone seems to be wondering what this crazy new thing might mean. The end of government control over money? The start of an international crypto-currency? Is Knightmare on Wall Street coming for this market?

Bitcoins are mined according to a set of algorithms. Essentially, computers solve some math problems and generate bitcoins. The coins are stored in, and traded among, digital wallets. People can buy real things with them, at least from people who accept them, or, as many people seem to be doing, sit on them in hopes the price will keep rising. Per the algorithms, mining bitcoins becomes more difficult over time. Only about 21 million of them can ever be created — which is why so many people have been chasing after them. Bitcoins are now accepted as payment at almost a thousand retail outlets and websites, including OKCupid, Reddit, and Pizza Rodi in Montreal. But what has really grabbed attention is how volatile the price has been. The value has gyrated wildly. In the last month alone, the bitcoin market capitalization has swung between $14 billion and $7 billion.

However, Mark Williams of Boston University has insisted that the value of a Bitcoin will pop, falling as low $10 next year. Others say it is all just another bubble. Is the bitcoin market reaty to experience its own version of a Knightmare on Wall Street? This is the new book by Edgar Perez, former McKinsey consultant and celebrated author of The Speed Traders, now available in his website http://www.MrEdgarPerez.com with immediate shipping now available at http://www.KnightmareonWallStreet.com.

Knightmare on Wall Street provides a fascinating account of what it took to elevate the firm to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, to end up ultimately being ignominiously bought up by a competitor.

Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and Edgar Perez's Knightmare on Wall Street Step up Top Marketing in 2013

Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders, and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop, Proudly Introduces Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, a Behind-the-scenes Look at Knight Capital's 17 years of Tumultuous Existence as an Independent Company.

New York, NY, USA (December 23, 2013) -- Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber both appealed to a wide audience of tweens and their parents. As indicated by Business Insider, benefitting from the Disney marketing machine, Cyrus was Disney TV character Hannah Montana, a regular singer on the Disney channel, a concert performer that recorded albums, and the namesake of the a clothing line launched by Disney in 2007; what worked for the Hannah Montana crowd was not going to work for 20 somethings. The target audience, or lock, had changed so Miley needed to come up with a new edgier image, or key, to remain relevant.

Justin Bieber's mop-top silky blond hair and boyish smile became his signature, and it worked really well with his target audience, tweens and parents who preferred their kids emulate the wholesome, innocent-looking Bieber over the other choices in the pop world. Similar to Miley, as he approached 20 and his loyal fans grew with him, he needed a new image to fit his changing audience.

Neither of them could ever go back to being cute 15 and 16 year olds again. The best they could do was go after an older, edgier audience and keep their PR machines going. Knightmare on Wall Street, Mr. Edgar Perez's latest book, a thrilling minute-by-minute account of the terrifying hours following Knight Capital's August 1, 2012 trading debacle, followed the same marketing philosophy by after his first book, The Speed Traders.

Knight Capital announced a staggering loss of $440 million, after issuing an unprecedented number of erroneous orders into the market, at 9:30 A.M. on August 1, 2012, due to an error in installing new software. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, CEO Thomas Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap. While Knight Capital was back in the game, its limping recovery quickly prompted hungry competitors to bid for the entire company. On December 19, 2012, the board decided to accept an acquisition proposal from GETCO rather than Virtu Financial. For GETCO, acquiring Knight Capital represented a gigantic fast forward step. For Knight Capital, it was the end of its wild ride as an independent entity.

Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert in the specialized area of high-frequency trading. He is author of The Speed Traders, An Insider's Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, published in English by McGraw-Hill Inc. (2011), Published in Mandarin by China Financial Publishing House (2012), and Investasi Super Kilat: Pandangan Orang dalam tentang Fenomena Baru Frekuensi Tinggi yang Mentransformasi Dunia Investasi, published in Bahasa Indonesia by Kompas Gramedia (2012). Perez is course director of The Speed Traders Workshop, How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX (Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Warsaw, Kiev, New York, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai). He contributes to The New York Times and China's International Finance News and Sina Finance.
