HIFREQ TRADE is a must attend event for involved parties to keep track with lighting fast developments and changing environment of these technologies. Nevertheless, the profits it made during last year in the peak of financial crisis sparked the need for discussion of HFT strategies.
High frequency trading is a rapidly growing phenomenon that has recently become the center of a heated discussion among traders and investors for its potential to bring high profits in today's uncertain and volatile markets. According to some estimates, HFT represents the half of all trades on the market, and supposedly only 2% of traders are using this technology. Nevertheless, the returns it brought in the peak of the financial crisis proved that it is an alternative trading strategy choice for leaders in electronic trading.
On the other side, traditional investors blame HFT for its potential manipulation and distortion of markets giving them a disadvantage and supposedly making bogus volume. It is also under the scrutiny of regulatory bodies in both US and Europe for its controversial features such as flash orders, rebates, naked access, and the question of volume creation and also its market impact is still not clear.
HFT has brought the definite change in to the trading arena including boosting the volume and bringing the liquidity on major exchanges. Trading simply became the technology arms race and the higher the frequency or the speed of trades and orders usually means higher profits to the involved parties.
