High-frequency traders have been called many things, from masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators. Everyone in the business of investing has an opinion of speed traders, but how many really understand how they operate? The shadow people of the investing world, todayâ€™s high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile, until now.
The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 opens the door to the secretive world of high-frequency trading, the most controversial form of investing today; in the name of protecting the algorithms they have spent so much time perfecting, speed traders almost never talk to the press and disclose as little as possible about how they operate.
The Speed Traders Workshop 2012, led by Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insiderâ€™s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, reveals how high-frequency trading players are succeeding in the global markets and driving the development of algorithmic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to India, Singapore and Brazil.
Edgar Perez has been featured on CNBC Cash Flow (with Oriel Morrison), CNBC Squawk Box (with Geoff Cutmore), BNN Business Day (with Kim Parlee), The Street (with Gregg Greenberg), Channel NewsAsia Asia Business Tonight and Cents & Sensibilities (with Lin Xue Ling), NHK World, iMoney Hong Kong, Hedge Fund Brief, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Dallas Morning News, Los Angeles Times, Valor EconÃ´mico, FIXGlobal Trading, TODAY Online, Oriental Daily News and Business Times. He has been engaged as speaker at Harvard Business Schoolâ€™s Venture Capital & Private Equity Conference (Boston), High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum, CFA Singapore, Hong Kong Securities Institute, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, MIT Sloan Investment Management Conference (Cambridge), Global Growth Markets Forum (London), Technical Analysis Society (Singapore), TradeTech Asia (Singapore), FIXGlobal Face2Face (Seoul) and Private Equity Convention Russia, CIS & Eurasia (London), among other global forums.
