Joe Schifano recently joined Eventus Systems as Global Head of Regulatory Affairs. John Lothian News asked Schifano to offer a presentation on spoofing for our MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity series.

Presentations like this one are in addition to the ones presented at our July 22 World of Opportunity virtual event. John Lothian News will continue to offer additional non-event World of Opportunity presentations on subjects interesting to interns and newer employees, but also to the industry at large.

In this presentation, Schifano explains what spoofing is: fraud. And he walks us through examples of what spoofing looks like.

Anyone who is in the trading world should have a good understanding of what spoofing is and the tricks involved. Schifano’s World of Opportunity talk is a must watch if you want to learn more about spoofing.
