The following are links to stories mentioned in this week’s episode:

Tampa Bay Business Journal -> Tampa investment firm clients owe millions to broker-dealer that executed single-day trade, firm says

-Bloomberg via Crain’s Cleveland Business -> Wiped-out fund investors, represented by Cleveland law firm, seek to recoup losses from broker

Financial Times -> Nasdaq moves into ‘alternative data’ with Quandl acquisition

MIAX -> Court Grants MIAXs Motion to Stay Entire Nasdaq Litigation

Globe Newswire -> Dash to Acquire eRoom Securities

-Bloomberg via Yahoo Finance -> Bitcoin Options Bought for $1 Million Will Soon Be Worthless
