Nasdaq Officials Are Sorry About The Whole…Y’Know

They’ve reviewed the tapes and it appears an apology is in order.

Robert Greifeld said he and other Nasdaq Stock Market officials “owe the industry an apology” for the exchange’s technical problems that marred Facebook highly anticipated stock offering last month and left traders and investors frustrated and confused. In his first one-on-one interview about the social-networking company’s initial public offering, Mr. Greifeld, chief executive of Nasdaq OMX Group Inc., said Wednesday that he and his staff have undergone “an entirely clinical, analytical” review of the events of May 18 in order to calculate trading losses caused by the IPO. “Clearly we didn’t succeed here,” Mr. Greifeld said in his office at Nasdaq’s MarketSite in New York’s Times Square.

    Greifeld, you better lawyer up, asshole. Because I'm not coming back for some paltry settlement. I'm coming back for your whole bullshit exchange.

    Rumor they are going to make up the diff to market makers by knocking off future bills. Problem with that is nobody will have a bill there to discount….

    I'm reiterating my previous call: Facebook's market slide has nothing to do with its fundamentals and everything to do with exchange technical problems. Getting in at anything less than $200 per share is a bargain.

    I don't understand the need for an apology. Other than that I have no concerns.

    Thank you for sharing your find. I really hope it finds a superb residence that will cherish. I’m a member from the Studebaker family and just adore images in the cars that past generations of my relatives have produced. Shame of folks pondering less of it since of it really is history. That’s element on the historical past of my generation like it or not! Fantastic luck!
