The Event

Despite the economic downturn, high frequency trading has emerged as a highly reliable market approach, accounting for the unexpectedly impressive profits of industry giants. Domestically, medium to high frequency trading achieved its best year on record, and the opportunities for growing profits is tremendous, especially with the capabilities direct trading tools possess to hone in on dark pools of liquidity not yet exploited.

High frequency trading now accounts for more than 70% of trades on NYSE and is growing rapidly in foreign exchanges. Critics believe that HFT is creating an imbalance in the system with far reaching implications to both the practitioner and the retail trader. Also, the SEC’s growing interest in regulating high-frequency trading may change the playing field for traders, especially any engaging in flash trades.

The High Frequency Trading Summit delivers the strategies of those with the most successful high frequency trading platforms and examines how the market can react and get in the game. Sessions address many of the hot-button issues including flash trades, regulation and market imbalance as well as identify actionable strategies for evaluating your firm’s infrastructure to identify the most efficient, cost-effective path to moving into this space.

Presenters discuss how to leverage high frequency trading platforms to uncover dark pools of liquidity and delve into the more granular aspects of portfolio management when it comes to FX, Futures and Options.
