How did algorithmic trading play into the Sterling flash crash?
As the Bank of England investigates what caused the sudden "flash crash" of Sterling on Friday, plunging 6% in value in two minutes, many are pointing fingers to algorithmic traders. These so-called robotic automated systems have been on the rise - and now there are concerns surrounding oversight, and how to stop these crashes happening again. Matt Cox spoke to Ken Odeluga, a Market Analyst at City Index to find out more about algorithmic traders.

This is Money: Floored by Politics
A week is a long time in politics - UKIP; Fracking protesters; and the pound all got a pummeling, didn't they? Welcome to the This is Money podcast, produced in partnership with NS&I. This week, Share Radio’s Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and journalist Ellie Lawrie to take a look at the week’s biggest financial stories. And we start with the speech. Which speech? Don’t be silly. Theresa May capped off the Conservative Party conference with an entreaty for the Tories to be the Peoples Party, but more importantly for our purposes, the PM gave some strong signals of protectionism and increased toughness on Business. Energy, pensions, transport – few sectors escaped her view. And we’re in no doubt about a Hard Brexit now, so how are May and Chancellor Hammond going to navigate this one? To further complicate matters is a near-perfect negative correlation between a plunging Sterling and a soaring FTSE. What are we to make of this? We’ll also be admonishing you to get your affairs in order, that is write a will. Few things ruin a family quicker than money, and family disputes over inheritances are on the rise in this country. We want to make sure your estate is dealt with in the way you intend, without breaking up the home. We’ll also be looking at ways of spending a windfall, the hyper-hyper-inflation of the new £5 note, and … you hear that? The carols are here early, and it’s time for a look-ahead to the toys on every kids’ Christmas list this year. (Sorry, but you really ought to get started early this year, they’re not cheap). This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost, in partnership with NS&I.

Telecoms group TalkTalk has been slapped with a record £400,000 fine by the Information Commissioner’s Office because of a cyber attack last year.

Morning Money: “Economic forecasts have a low amount of credibility” – Jeremy Cook on the IMF's UK growth forecast
The International Monetary Fund has defended the grim warnings it made about the potential impact of the UK voting to leave the EU, with its chief economist saying it would have been “malpractice” not to have considered worst-case scenarios. The comments came after the fund nudged up its 2016 growth forecast for the UK but cut the 2017 forecast once again. Jeremy Cook, Chief Economist at World First, joined Share Radio to offer his view on the forecasts.
