Good video, just finished watching it on youtube because the original link was not cooperating. Slightly biased documentary but interesting to here more about black box trading.

Here is the youtube links for those interested: YouTube - ‪Tegenlicht - FlashCrash - Financiele Crisis...‬‏
also here is a video I watched about Quant trading and the role CDOs played in the financial crisis
YouTube - ‪Quants: The Alchemists of Wall Street (Marije Meerman, VPRO Backlight 2010)‬‏

Check this story out. Apparently this guy was responsible for 20% of the sell orders the day of the flash crash.
