R/Superstonk Live - Dave Lauer - May 5, 2021
Added: 1 month ago
This is the official AMA (Ask Me Anything) live stream for Dave Lauer, who joined u/jsmar18 on Superstonk Live for a one-on-one discussion, with questions influenced by and taken directly from the reddit post on www.reddit.com/r/Superstonk.
A message from our guest:
Hi, I'm Dave Lauer. I built low latency trading systems, and then worked as a high-frequency trader at Citadel and then Allston Trading. I left about a year after the Flash Crash (2011), disturbed at the impact of HFT on markets. I have since testified before the US Senate, worked with the SEC and CFTC, helped institutional investors understand market structure, represented them in DC, and quantitatively analyzed their brokers' order routing algorithms. I worked with IEX early on, and sit on the board of Aequitas NEO in Canada. I also sit on FINRA's Market Regulation Committee. The last 2 years I've focused on novel applications of AI, both in finance and beyond, and am also on the founding editorial board of the Journal of AI and Ethics.
I'm talking to the mods about doing an AMA and am looking forward to it! I've seen some questions about the effects that limit orders might have on stock price and stock loan mechanics, so I posted some thoughts here: https://reddit.com/r/Superstonk/comments/mzpyfq/do_gme_limit_orders_impact_the_stock_price_not/
TLDR; there's little to no impact on the stock price from limits orders that are far from the NBBO. I'm not sure about the stock loan question, but I doubt it matters.
Note that Mr. Lauer will obviously not be able to answer any sensitive questions directly concerning any of his previous employers or their practices and strategies.
Please note... This channel is not monetized, nor will it ever be (screenshot this and hold us accountable), and is strictly for education and discussion as it relates to r/Superstonk topics and the interests of the community. The idea was approved by the mod team, and the channel was created and is administered by u/redchessqueen99. The stream itself will be handled through a third party service with many live-editing features (omitted for security's sake) that allows a stream through Youtube.
Finally, we made the choice to create this platform because AMA guests seem to prefer the live stream method, since they don't always have a reliable platform to stream from. This allows us to offer them a choice of platform, and also a means of discussion with our members LIVE, that ultimately will cater to the interests of r/Superstonk and this community of diamond handed apes.
