  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) October 05, 2012 - Director Jay Scoggins, Securities and Exchange Commission, and Commissioner Bart Chilton, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, will present this fall to Golden Networking's High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, ""How Knight Capital's 'Knightmare on Wall Street' Could Transform the Regulatory Landscape and Impact Investors and Speed Traders"".

    This conference will provide attendees in Chicago and London with the most up-to-date review of where this ever-changing industry stands and how new technology and regulatory developments will impact it. Recognized experts, regulators, and strategists, will return to High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 to provide the information practitioners are looking for in an open and unbiased environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.

    Mr. Scoggins is Assistant Regional Director for the SEC Division of Enforcement's Market Abuse Unit, which pursues nationwide investigations into large-scale insider trading networks, large cap market manipulations, system-based and platform-driven trading violations such as front running, collusive trading, best execution and abusive short selling violations as well as other systemic, institutional regulatory violations, internal control violations and other abusive market practices.

    Mr. Scoggins joined the SEC's Denver Office in April 2000, where he leads a team of attorneys and accountants who bring significant enforcement actions involving public company accounting and financial disclosure, broker dealer regulation, and investment adviser regulation. Prior to joining the Commission, Mr. Scoggins was a prosecutor for Colorado's 17th Judicial District. Mr. Scoggins is a 1997 graduate of the University of Denver School of Law and a 1993 graduate of North Carolina State University, where he received his bachelor's degree in psychology.

    Mr. Chilton is the author of ""Ponzimonium: How Scam Artists are Ripping Off America"". In his new book, Commissioner Chilton contends that financial scam artists are ripping off Americans more and more according to recent government figures. "We thought all the frauds and Ponzi scams were horrific in the wake of the Madoff scandal, but it is even worse now," says Commissioner Bart Chilton. While federal, state and local law enforcement are going after the con artists more than ever before, there are basic precautions consumers should take before they part with their hard-earned money. Commissioner Chilton lays it all out in a new book. In Ponzimonium-How Scam Artists are Ripping Off America, he tells the fascinating stories of ten such Ponzi scams that took place in 2009. "These are real cases, real fraudsters, with unfortunately, very real victims," Chilton writes. The book also captures, in words and pictures, a behind-the-scenes look at the lifestyles of the schemers.
