Ding, ding, ding! Another real life TAKEDOWN of the market

I was recently asked, "how likely is the orchestrated market crash scenario portrayed in TAKEDOWN?" In the world of High Frequency (HFT) crack-induced market trading, the line between fiction and reality is thin: Apple and the risks of trading 29,000 times per second.

They called it a "glitch" and the HFT biz CEO said something went "haywire". Oh, the agony. He should have read TAKEDOWN . . .

UPDATE 3/26/2012: TAKEDOWN is on a free promo for one day.
