2013-02-01 18:06:09 - Golden Networking hosts the World’s Most Influential High-Frequency Trading Conference Series, High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 (http://www.High-Frequency-Trading.info) "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges", London (March 21) and New York City (May 30)
(February 1, 2013, New York) Felix Salmon links to an animation that shows how much trading has taken place across all of America's stock markets. The data shows that the volume of trading has increased dramatically and that it is not clear that this correlates with any real gains or growth in the stock market. What is clear though it the out of control networking that is expected at High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, this time in London (March 21) and New York City (May 30).
According to Salmon, it’s fair to say that if you take a long, five-year view, then you can see a clear rise in trading activity. But it’s also fair to say that there’s something
quite literally out of control going on here. Just as the quants at Knight found themselves unable to turn off their machines for 30 long minutes last month, the HFT world in aggregate seemingly has a mind of its own when it comes to trading patterns. Or, to put it another way, if there’s a pattern here, it’s one incomprehensible to human minds.
The stock market today is a war zone, where algo robots fight each other over pennies, millions of times a second. Sometimes, the casualties are merely companies like Knight, and few people have much sympathy for them. But inevitably, at some point in the future, significant losses might end up being borne by investors with no direct connection to the HFT world, which is so complex that its potential systemic repercussions are literally unknowable.
High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 ( hft-leaders-forum.com
), How Knight Capital's 'Knightmare on Wall Street' Could Transform the Regulatory Landscape and Impact Investors, Speed Traders and Brokers", will provide attendees in London and New York City with the most up-to-date review of where this ever-changing industry stands and how new technology and regulatory developments will impact it.
