Submission + - Day traders convicted for tricking trading machine-> 2 2

While sympathy for the two day traders, and admiration for their triumph of of man versus machine, is widespread, "Christian Stenberg, the Norwegian police attorney responsible for the case, said any admiration for the men was misplaced. 'This is a new kind of manipulation but it is still at the expense of other investors in the market,' he said."
