2010 Summit on High Frequency Trading & Quantitative Strategies
Exploring How Recent Regulations, Technological Innovations and the New Breed of Trader are Impacting the US Market Structure
May 17-18, 2010 • New York, NY

Recently, the U.S. equity markets have undergone a considerable transformation. One of the most significant developments is the advent of High Frequency Trading. Traders who engage in this strategy are employing methods such as co-location and trading center data feeds in order to facilitate high-speed trades. These recent and arguably controversial trading practices have led the SEC to conduct a review in order to assess whether the current market structure is advantageous to both long- and short-term investors.

The High Frequency Trading Challenge!

In this unique event, we bring together leaders and innovators to share their insights and expertise. In addition to covering traditional topics such as defining the high frequency trading space and focusing on the technical and quantitative issues, what distinguishes this conference from the others is that it also analyzes the impact these strategies have had upon the overall market. Industry practitioners will examine the proposed SEC regulations concerning high frequency trading and other quantitative strategies, how they will affect all market players and whether or not these policies are justified. Finally, experts will help the audience to better understand the latest technological innovations and advancements in high frequency and quantitative trading and what this means for you.
