Ouch: Thomson Reuters "Second(s)" Guesses Itself

Suspends Early Peeks at University of Michigan consumer confidence survey

Peter Lattman:
"The controversy over the Thomson Reuters practice highlights the prevalence of high-speed trading in the nation’s financial markets. More than half of all American stock trades are now executed by firms that rely on computer algorithms to execute thousands of orders a second. These traders can get an edge by obtaining market data even milliseconds before their rivals."
Damage done. This is damage control. Credibility at stake.

Business reputation takes hard gut-hit.
