New York, NY, May 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The exact causes of Thursday’s stock market short-circuit remain unclear for the most part, but the lesson is unmistakable. It is time for the regulators and the major exchanges to have a critical look at current market structures, mechanisms and circuit breakers, so that the promise of electronic trading that can benefit all investors is fulfilled.
Limited tickets remain available for High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2010, "Innovating and Profiting from High-Frequency Trading in 2010 and Beyond", forum that will provide attendees with the most up-to-date and enlightening overview of the present and future of High-Frequency Trading. Recognized leaders and experts will provide you with the information you are looking for to profit in any market environment. Topics that will be discussed include access methods to venues, regulatory overview, technology key success factors, latency, co-location, proximity, fragmented market data, compliance and risk management.
A team of distinguished experts and practitioners will cover the most relevant and urgent topics for professionals 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?
- 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?
