Who will cover the most relevant and urgent topics for all practitioners in the High-Frequency Trading and Alternative Investments worlds:

  • Profitably Running a High-Frequency Trading Operation in 2010 and Beyond
    Traders are leaving high-frequency trading shops to start their new firms; they quickly plan to scale up to 100 million shares a day. Few months later, they are struggling to stay in business. How to profitably run a high-frequency trading firm? Which considerations are important in the setup stage? How to protect intellectual property when an employee leaves? How to set up initial relationships with key exchanges? How to leverage your prime broker for capital introduction services?

  • Successfully Implementing Killer High-Frequency Strategies
    High-Frequency Trading generates returns through the rapid turnover of many small positions in one or more financial instruments. These strategies are considerably less risky than traditional low-frequency trading in market risk, credit and counterparty risk, liquidity risk, and operational risk categories. Yet, managers of high-frequency shops are delivering positive returns. How are these managers beating low-frequency traders? How to successfully apply information arbitrage and deviations arbitrage? How to make sure there is a level playing field?

  • Technology Infrastructure to Enable Ultra High-Frequency Trading
    High-frequency trading is a sophisticated automation of functions traditionally performed by traders. Implementing ultra high-frequency trading strategies requires careful planning and scrupulous implementation. Would you be able to buy all the necessary infrastructure rather than build it? In which cases would you need customized work? How could you enhance speeds through hardware acceleration? How expensive are co-location services? How to improve processing capacity of the servers running the trading programs?

  • The Future and Challenges of High-Frequency Trading
    Despite drawing the unwanted attention of regulators and members of Congress, high-frequency trading has quickly leapt into the spotlight and gained immense popularity, thanks to record profits. Which are going to be the most important high-frequency trading strategies moving forward? Which types of firms are most likely to include high frequency trading into their trading strategy? What are the long-term implications on the market? What to expect and what to request of the regulators?
