Stock market rigged, says Michael Lewis in new book
Michael Lewis' "Flash Boys" reveals how a group of unlikely characters discovered how some high-speed traders work the stock market to their advantage

The U.S. stock market is rigged in favor of high-frequency traders, stock exchanges and large Wall Street banks who have found a way to use computer-based speed trading to gain a decisive edge over everyone else, from the smallest retail investors to the biggest hedge funds, says Michael Lewis in a new blockbuster book, "Flash Boys."

The insiders' methods are legal but cost the rest of the market's players tens of billions of dollars a year, according to Lewis, who speaks to Steve Kroft in his first interview about the book. Kroft's report will be broadcast on 60 Minutes, Sunday, March 30 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

High-frequency traders have found ways to use their speed to gain an advantage that few understand, says Lewis. "They're able to identify your desire to buy shares in Microsoft and buy them in front of you and sell them back to you at a higher price," says Lewis. "The speed advantage that the faster traders have is milliseconds...fractions of milliseconds."

Wall Street rigged, author tells '60 Minutes'
By Hal Boedeker
Staff writer
11:32 a.m. EDT, March 28, 2014

If you're a fan of author Michael Lewis, you'll be happy to know he's on "60 Minutes" this weekend.

You probably won't be happy about what he has to say.

In a new book, "Flash Boys," Lewis contends that "the U.S. stock market is rigged in favor of high-frequency traders, stock exchanges and large Wall Street banks who have found a way to use computer-based speed trading to gain a decisive edge over everyone else, from the smallest retail investors to the biggest hedge funds," CBS News says.
Steve Kroft is the correspondent. The news magazine is scheduled for 7 p.m. Sunday, although NCAA basketball could push back the start.

Lewis' other books include "Liar's Poker," "Boomerang," "The Big Short" and "Moneyball." But the focus in on "Flash Boys," and this is Lewis' first interview about the book.
