Wall St whistleblower launches fusillade at NYSE

NYSE Wall Street

Whistleblower Haim Bodek now wants to cut the Big Board down to size — and he has a fighting chance with regulators in his corner, say Wall Street veterans.

The New York Post reports that the former Goldman Sachs and UBS trader-turned-high-profile-mole last week launched a fusillade at the already battered New York Stock Exchange, saying the exchange’s latest gamble on high-speed reforms should be stopped.

Bodek last went this ballistic back in 2011, when he went directly to the Securities and Exchange Commission to accuse exchanges of giving turbo-charged electronic traders an unfair edge over the little guy.

Bodek, 43, of Stamford, Conn., had run a high-speed-trading firm after his Goldman and UBS gigs. The SEC is said to be quietly probing his charges, but declined to comment.
