Goldman Becoming Bored Exploiting Current Regulation

With the scrutiny on high frequency trading increasing every moment Chuck Schumer is awake, the head of electronic trading at GS, Greg Tusar, is calling out regulators to bring it on.

"The reality is our inter-market routing has become highly technical and highly complex and it's not a bad idea to step back and take a look at it. We need to find out if there is anything we should change and where the gaps in regulation should be closed."

With Goldman being one of the leaders in the nanosecond timing market, it appears they've become tired of having others come up the regulation gaming learning curve and nipping at their heels. Given the thorough, air-tight history of trading regulation, finding a way around whatever electronic trading plans make Schumer sleep better at night should take GS about as long as executing one of their trades.
