NEW YORK, April 15 (Reuters) - Shares of Virtu Financial Inc , an electronic market maker that postponed its IPO a year ago amid the furor over Michael Lewis' book "Flash Boys," are slated to begin trading on Thursday in a possible sign that public angst over "high-frequency" trading is waning.

Virtu, whose stock will trade under the symbol "VIRT" and list on Nasdaq, priced at $19 a share, the upper end of the range, according to a source. Virtu is offering 16.5 million class A shares and raised about $314.1 million.
