scrutiny of high-frequency trading and whether it gives some investors
unfair advantage has intensified amid government probes and the March
31, 2014 publication of "Flash Boys" by Michael Lewis. While those
examinations have focused mostly on U.S. equity markets, such as dark
pools run by banks and broker-dealers and exchanges owned by companies
including Nasdaq OMX, IntercontinentalExchange Group's NYSE Euronext and
Bats Global Markets, high-frequency traders are active internationally
in futures, FX and fixed income markets, as they also run multi-asset
traders have been called many things, from emerging masters of the
universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even
predators and thieves. 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, today's
high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile, until now.
The Speed Traders Workshop,
the first and most comprehensive initiation to the world of electronic
and algorithmic trading, opens the door to the secretive world of
computerized low-latency 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 try to disclose as little as possible about how they operate.
The Speed Traders Workshop
covers the latest research currently available and reveals how
high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and
driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from
the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil. The "flash crash", the
suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital's trading
malfunction and NASDAQ's Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones
in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with
"Edgar Perez is THE expert on high-frequency trading."
