Quants, HFT and the Flash Crash

Here are a few of my favorite documentaries on  quants, HFT and the flash crash.

“A quant is a person who specializes in the application of mathematical and statistical methods – such as numerical or quantitative techniques – to financial and risk management problems.” wikipedia

At around the 24 min mark Haim Bodek explains the real advantage that those in the know have.

An interesting look at the flash crash.
