Sandbox effect on finance markets

One of Asia's top trading firms is shutting down a large chunk of its US business

Rick Gould, CEO of CLSA Americas said that the firm had always focused on providing US and global investors "differentiated insights on US stocks."
"While we succeeded in this regard, the economics of providing US equity research have become increasingly challenged," he said. "Our focus now is to continue to provide our clients access to liquidity and best execution.”
Thus is a story of human insight vs bots. The company wants the bot business, they wanna be in the sandbox.
