Chicago feds crack down on high-speed trading
from Crain's Chicago Business
Federal regulators in Chicago raised the stakes for high-speed traders, with the first criminal indictment for “spoofing.” The U.S. Attorney's Office in Chicago indicted New Jersey-based Panther Energy Trading LLC owner Michael Coscia on 12 counts of fraudulent and manipulative trading, alleging that he profited illegally from an ultra-fast scheme to place, but then rapidly cancel, futures contract trades. The grand jury charges were filed in U.S. District Court for Northern Illinois.
