Bloomberg reporter leaves to write book
Nina Mehta, who covered exchanges and trading for Bloomberg News, quit her job on Friday to write a book about her beat.
“I left Bloomberg News to write a book about what I’ve been covering for more than a decade: the structure of U.S. equity markets and how it’s changed over the last 15 years,” said Mehta in a message to Talking Biz News.
Mehta had been with Bloomberg since January 2010. She wrote about U.S. market structure, equity and options exchanges, institutional trading, dark pools, regulatory topics, market making,
broker-dealers, wholesalers, electronic trading, algorithms, and technology.
Before that, she was a senior editor at Traders magazine, where she wrote about U.S. institutional equities and options trading, exchanges, ECNs, dark liquidity, broker-dealers, market-making, market structure, Reg NMS and other regulatory issues.
She was also managing editor of Derivatives Strategy from 1998 to 2001. She wrote about risk management, equity derivatives, the developing credit derivatives market, regulation, exchanges and the OTC markets, hedge funds and technology for the main U.S. monthly magazine for financial derivatives professionals. The magazine ceased publication in June 2001.
Mehta has a bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University and a master’s degree from Columbia.
