Whistleblower award for NYSE fine goes to HFT critic

Eric Hunsader (Nanex) gets payout from the SEC

"Eric Hunsader, a vocal critic of high-frequency traders, said the Securities and Exchange Commission is sending him a $750,000 whistleblower award.

On Jan. 15 the SEC confirmed it would pay “more than $700,000” to a whistleblower that had provided the “independent analysis as well as independent knowledge of securities law violations” that led to a $5 million fine for the New York Stock Exchange in 2012. Hunsader showed MarketWatch a letter from the SEC that confirmed the approval of his award and told MarketWatch he was the recipient of a pending award for the tip that led to the NYSE fine. By law, the SEC does not publicly identify the whistleblower’s name or the company that was subject to the order. The notice to Hunsader on Monday also said the time period for all other potential claimants to appeal the SEC decision on the same issue had expired.

A spokeswoman from the SEC declined comment on the whistleblower award. "

A nice step and now hopefully there will be others that come forward in the future.

Hunsader has been described as the 'nemesis' of HFT. He posts multiple tweets per day about it, often detailing why certain HFT companies are gaining what is seen as an unfair advantage, especially in the equities space.

Thanks for this great thread and info @xplorer. Sorry I missed it when you first threw it up.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.
The steed of this Valley is pain; and if there be no pain this journey will never end.

Hey no problem Ron. I follow the guy and he's good. Sometimes though I think he tweets way too much about one specific issue, and that has the risk of making him appear negative. Quality tweets nevertheless.

I don't really think one can turn off or otherwise somehow mask or camouflage "feelings" just because of a "data driven" approach. Pretend doesn't exist, yep. All of life pours through the filter of self. Next thing you know the loaf of bread shuns the baker....lol.

But still great stuff. We all have our issues.
