Knightmare on Wall Street Tops Best Gift Ideas Lists for Last-Minute Holiday Shoppers Worldwide

Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders, and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop, Introduces Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, a Behind-the-scenes Look at Knight Capital’s 17 years of Tumultuous Existence as an Independent Company.

New York, NY, USA (December 17, 2013) — During the holidays you have a lot going-a lot more than usual, anyway. The addition of travel, family and year-end work quotas can make you feel like the stress is piling on. What can business executives and professionals can do to keep it all at bay? Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, the new book by Edgar Perez, former McKinsey consultant and celebrated author of The Speed Traders, is now available in his website http://www.MrEdgarPerez.com with immediate shipping now available at http://www.KnightmareonWallStreet.com.

Knightmare on Wall Street provides a fascinating account of what it took to elevate the firm to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, to end up ultimately being ignominiously bought up by a competitor. Readers will discover a thrilling minute-by-minute account of the terrifying hours following Knight Capital’s August 1, 2012 trading debacle, with news-breaking research regarding the firm’s 17 years of tumultuous existence as an independent company.

At 9:30 A.M. on August 1, 2012, right after the markets opened for the day, Knight Capital began issuing an unprecedented number of erroneous orders into the market, due to an error in installing new software. Knight Capital announced later a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert in the specialized area of high-frequency trading. He is author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, published in English by McGraw-Hill Inc. (2011), Published in Mandarin by China Financial Publishing House (2012), and Investasi Super Kilat: Pandangan Orang dalam tentang Fenomena Baru Frekuensi Tinggi yang Mentransformasi Dunia Investasi, published in Bahasa Indonesia by Kompas Gramedia (2012). Perez is course director of The Speed Traders Workshop, How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX (Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Warsaw, Kiev, New York, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai).

Tamera Nielsen Announces the Debut of Photo and Quote Book, “Perspectives: Words on Hope, Truth, and Integrity” Exclusively at Everybody Reads Books and Stuff at Cost

Tamera Nielsen announces the debut of her book, “Perspectives: Words on Hope, Truth, and Integrity” exclusively at Everybody Reads bookstore – at cost – in support of Capital Area Local First (CALF).

Tamera Nielsen, Author, Photographer, and Publisher of “Perspectives: Words on Hope, Truth, and Integrity” announces the book’s debut at Everybody Reads. “Perspectives” is available at cost exclusively at Everybody Reads in support of CALF, a Lansing-based organization whose mission is to educate the local community on the importance of buying from local proprietors first. Member of CALF and Proprietor of Everybody Reads, Scott Harris is an advocate for local authors and talent.

Everybody Reads offers its clientele more than books. Wearable items, edible treats, a community room, and a book trade – operating on the honor system are a few highlights of Everybody Reads located at: 2019 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing, MI. “Perspectives” is a colorful compilation of original quotes and photography providing observations on life. “Perspectives” is available at cost at Everybody Reads to support CALF and raise awareness for buying local, especially during this Holiday Season. “I wholeheartedly support Scott’s and CALF’s mission of buying local, and I’m honored to be among one of the local authors Scott has chosen,” Nielsen says. “Perspectives” has garnered worldwide attention and accolades via Nielsen’s social media and local outreach. Initial reviews from readers include local entrepreneurs, writers, artists, and photographers. “You bring such passion and emotions to what you say that one can’t help but be drawn to your kind words of affirmation, hope, and enlightenment.” ~

Raymond Burks, Writer “Your perfect quotes matched with your personal photographs are a wonderful prescription for pausing, refocusing, and redirecting one’s energy to positive paths forward. A great resource to help bolster a stronger tomorrow for every reader.” ~ Roy Saper, Owner Saper Galleries and CALF Member. “You have a gift for creating memorable and helpful sayings… as a writer I understand the machinations of capturing your creativity… coming up with a self-directed short phrase or two that has meaningful impact is a ‘horse of a different color’… I also enjoyed your photography.” Robert Sadler, Novelist-Essayist-Poet-Artist and Photographer According to Nielsen, “Perspectives” would not be available to the local Lansing community at Everybody Reads without the support of Harris and the mentoring of Okemos-based Talk Radio Host and Editor of “Sport” Lansing Sports Magazine, Jack Ebling.

“Each word in this book has emerged out of survival to overcome traumatic events in my life, and I created it to help others. I am most comfortable ‘behind-the-scenes’ supporting others, so sharing this book publicly is admittedly difficult for me. If however, it continues to help others; raises awareness for CALF and Everybody Reads, I will have accomplished my mission,” Nielsen says. About Tamera Nielsen Based in East Lansing, Michigan, Tamera is a self-taught, self-employed Business Development Consultant-turned-Life Altering Trauma Consultant.

Her 30-year career includes conceiving marketing strategies and writing for professionals and CEOs in virtually every industry nationwide. Her trauma consulting brainchild is a result of compassion for those facing and prevailing over traumatic adversity. She is an Expert Author on Ezine articles; published in Greater Lansing Woman, the Lansing State Journal, Entrepreneur, among others.
