Best comments from our readers

"If you are a long-term investor, you can simply ride out the volatility. No one compels you to trade when volatility spikes. All the author can claim is that algo trading increases volatility; no one can prove it alters an asset's underlying value, or that the market price does not converge on the intrinsic value. Buffett is not bothered if an algo shakes his stock price up and down."
By Newyorker2014 on Markets: Can they really be tamed?

"Having resigned from four companies in the last decade (two of them blue-chip, two of them start-up), I've never once had an exit interview. Such a missed opportunity. As with customers, your most valuable are the ones who are dissatisfied. It is a very old-fashioned British attitude that assumes management have nothing to learn from their staff."
