美高频交易专家: 速度与策略决定成败

The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World2008年金融危机以来,许多对冲基金纷纷倒闭,投资者们也谨慎地捂紧钱袋,然而,有一种交易模式却在不断扩张,以它为商业模式的基金也如雨后春笋,这就是高频交易(High-Frequency Trading)。这种盈利模式的核心竞争力在哪里,前景又如何?

2008年金融危机以来,许多对冲基金纷纷倒闭,投资者们也谨慎地捂紧钱袋,然而,有一种交易模式却在不断扩张,以它为商业模式的基金也如雨后春笋,这就是高频交易(High-Frequency Trading)。这种盈利模式的核心竞争力在哪里,前景又如何?

近日,美国高频交易专家、《交易快手:透视正在改变投资世界的新兴高频交易》作者埃德加·佩雷斯(Edgar Perez)接受第一财经日报《财商》记者专访。他表示,实现毫秒或微秒交易的速度是高频交易的核心竞争力。目前,在发达的市场如美国和欧洲,高频交易已 占到交易量的一半以上。而假以时日,中国有望成为世界上最大的高频交易市场。

埃德加·佩雷斯小档案

“唯一成就大事的方法是做你热爱的事。如果你还没有发现它,就继续寻找,不要气馁。当你找到它的时候,你的心会让你知道。”埃德加·佩雷斯告诉记者,这是他的座右铭。

对于佩雷斯来说,金融领域是他热爱的事业。在获得哥伦比亚MBA学位后,他曾任花旗银行副总经理、麦肯锡公司的顾问。作为事业的高潮,他撰写了《交 易快手:透视正在改变投资世界的新兴高频交易》。该书的英语版本由麦格劳 – 希尔公司出版(2011年),今年,中国金融出版社(2012年)把它翻译成中文,目前,该书的印尼语和葡萄牙语版本正在翻译中。

《交易快手:透视正在改变投资世界的新兴高频交易》对高频交易进行了独到的分析。这到底是一种什么样的曾经“令人充满恐惧的技术”?它如何搞乱市 场?如何在两年前“闪电崩盘”中推波助澜?这本书告诉读者,媒体曾经渲染的股市“算牌”的现象已经改变。高频交易完全独立于“巴菲特式”的长期战略,它们 运作于完全不同的时间框架,并对长期投资组合产生的利润影响非常小。

佩雷斯对于高频交易的热爱并不止于写书。为了让更多的人了解这一金融市场的新趋势,他创立了交易快手工作室,并任课程主管,讲解高频率交易者如何利用有利可图的策略,来寻找股票、期权、期货和外汇中的阿尔法 。在此之前,他是纽约大学理工学院的兼职教授,教授算法交易和高频财务。

佩雷斯对中国等新兴经济国家有着浓厚的兴趣。2009年,他创立了致力于金融社交活动的黄金网络公司,并建立25000人的数据库。公司定期在纽约为金融人士举办针对中国等新兴经济体的聚会或者讲座,受到热烈欢迎,并被《纽约时报》等报道。他曾经多次接受中文媒体的采访,甚至在他Linkedin上的简历,也使用了中英双语。

Edgar Perez, The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Shanghai, Covered by China Business Network (CBN)

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012, How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FXEdgar Perez援引数据介绍指出,目前在美国证券市场中的整体成交金额中有56%来自高频交易,而这种交易手法也是伴随着科技的发展、市场的竞争、以及监管政策的变化,在证券市场中自然演进所出现的。 高

频交易研究专家Edgar Perez近日在与第一财经采访时表示,高频交易是一种专注于“速度(speed)”的投资方法,主要以先进的电脑技术和设备寻求在极短时间内的获利,然 而这种投资方法与巴菲特的“价值投资”哲学并不矛盾,亦有助投资者能跳出经济周期和宏观大环境的制约,寻找到不为外界环境所左右的“阿尔法”值(即超出市 场基准的收益回报)。

Edgar Perez援引数据介绍指出,目前在美国证券市场中的整体成交金额中有56%来自高频交易,而这种交易手法也是伴随着科技的发展、市场的竞争、以及监管政策的变化,在证券市场中自然演进所出现的。

高频交易主要以电脑完成交易,数据处理可以在毫秒(0.001秒)之间,人力根本无法与之匹配,因此该种交易主要依赖先进的科学技术和电脑算法。高频交易的主要策略包括电子化交易、趋势追踪、相对价值套利、流动性监测、新闻解读分析和投资基金方法等。

与现有主流的投资方法不同,Edgar Perez介绍,高频交易并不关注宏观经济和行业公司基本面,亦不关注其技术走势,高频交易中盈利的关键就在于速度,“只要你比别人快,就能胜出”。此 外,决定高频交易胜败的还在于“买”与“卖”的决定。因此简单来说,想要倚赖高频交易盈利,最为重要的,就是比别人更快地“买入”或“卖出”。

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012, How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FXAs reported by Bloomberg, Facebook Inc.’s $11.8 billion initial public offering will cement the status of 27-year-old Mark Zuckerberg as one of the world’s richest men and put his social network among the highest-valued companies in the U.S. Facebook is offering about 337.4 million shares for $28 to $35 each, according to a regulatory filing yesterday. At the upper end of that range, the co-founder’s stake would be $17.6 billion, making him richer than Microsoft Corp.’s Steve Ballmer and Russian steel billionaire Vladimir Lisin, who are both twice his age, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Zuckerberg, who began the service for Harvard classmates as a 19-year-old in his dorm room, built Facebook into the most popular social-networking site in the world, topping 900 million users last quarter. Now he has to prove he has the leadership skills to deliver enough growth to justify the company’s valuation, said Paul Saffo, managing director at Discern Analytics in San Francisco.

Edgar Perez, The Speed Traders Workshop 2012

Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, and presenter at upcoming The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Kuala Lumpur: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX, April 12th, was recently featured by BFM 89.9, Malaysia’s top business station; the podcast can be downloaded at http://www.bfm.my/2012-04-09-speed-traders-edgar-perez.html and http://podcast.bfm.my/podcast/e?file=assets/files/Resource_centre/2012_04_09_Edgar_Speed.mp3&t=High-FrequencyTrading.

Trading of equities on Bursa will be a new ballgame once computer-driven ultra-high frequency trading is introduced, said Mr. Perez, author and former Citigroup vice president. He added that high-speed trading already makes up six per cent of trades on the Bursa derivatives market and the stock exchange operator was reported to be gearing up for the introduction of ultra-fast trading of equities.

“Perez, who is conducting a workshop on HFT in Kuala Lumpur on April 12, also said that in order to minimize the latency of the trading systems, co-location is an inherent part of HFT. ‘As speed traders try to reduce any latency, they will want to trade from computers hosted on the exchanges themselves,’ he said. While such fast trading might not seem to appeal to long-term investors who focus on company fundamentals, Perez said that those with a long investment horizon are adapting some of the techniques HF traders have pioneered.”

Mr. Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent speaker and networker in the specialized area of high-frequency trading. He is author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, published by McGraw-Hill Inc. (2011) and currently being translated into Chinese and Portuguese, course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2012, How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX (Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Seoul, and Kuala Lumpur).

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012, How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX

Edgar Perez, The Speed Traders Workshop 2012

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, today’s high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile, until The Speed Traders Workshop 2012: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX. Mr. Edgar Perez, course director, will bring his well-attended workshops to Seoul, South Korea, March 28, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, April 12.

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. This workshop, led by Mr. Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’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.

“A clássica proposição industrial na qual a máquina substituirá o homem tem pouco a ver com a realidade da invasão dos robôs na BM&FBovespa. A nova fase de expansão dos computadores equipados por algoritmos matemáticos capazes de realizar operações ultrarrápidas no mercado nasce a partir da gestação de fatores bem humanos. Sob acirrada corrida dos investimentos em infraestrutura tecnológica, uma mão de obra cada vez mais qualificada nas corretoras e a disputa por clientes garantem a expectativa de que os negócios via alta frequência (HFT, High Frequency Trading na sigla em inglês) dobrem de tamanho rapidamente. ‘A nova plataforma será capaz de processar 200 milhões de mensagens por dia e oferecerá uma média de latência de 1,1 milissegundo’, declarou Edgar Perez, professor do Instituto Politécnico da Universidade de Nova York, em conversa com o Valor antes de viajar a São Paulo onde será palestrante de seminário sobre o tema nesta semana.”

“A colaboração mais direta da BM&FBovespa em propagar a alta frequência foi dada por meio dos descontos em emolumentos (custo cobrado pela bolsa para negociação) baseados em volume negociado. ‘Embora o HFT ainda tenha muito a avançar no Brasil para alcançar volumes de mercados desenvolvidos, o crescimento tem sido impressionante, graças à combinação de expansão dos acessos de alta frequência e políticas de descontos de custos, resultando em um aumento do volume negociado’, afirmou Edgar Perez. ‘Custos podem quebrar os modelos de negócios em alta frequência, já que as margens da maioria das estratégias são muito pequenas’, acrescentou.”

Operadores de alta frequência foram chamados de diversas maneiras:desde mestres do universo e pioneiros de mercado, para exploradores, hackers de computador e predadores. Todos  que trabalham no mercado de investimento, possuem uma opinião sobre os operadores de alta frequência, porém quantos realmente entendem como eles trabalham? Os operadores fantasma do mundo do investimento mantiveram suas técnicas escondidas de todos, até agora. The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 (http://thespeedtradersworkshop.com), ministrado por Edgar Perez, autor de The Speed Traders, Um olhar interno sobre o novo fenômeno que está transformando o mundo dos investidores, revela com que frequência os players estão obtendo sucesso no mercado global e desenvolvendo novos algorítmicos de alta velocidade, desde os EUA e Europa até Singapura, India e Brasil.

Quem deve participar de The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 São Paulo: Como Estratégias de Alta Frequência Utilizadas pelos Operadores para Aumentar os Lucros pode Encontrar Alpha em Equites, Opções e Mercados Futuros?Analístas de commodities, investidores quantitativos, analistas de creditos de derivativos, mercado de capitais, analístas de fundos de cobertura, opções, bancos de investimento, operadores de algorítimos, derivativos, operadores de alta frequência, engenheiros financeiros, operadores de capital, escritórios familiares, operadores de commodities, fundações, operadores de derivativos, futuros investidores, operadores de derivativos internacionais, gestores de carteiras, operadores virtuais, gestores de risco, produtos estruturados, instituições investidoras, tecnólogos da informação, investidores de capital e vendedores de derivativos.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 (http://www.TheSpeedTradersWorkshop.com) abre as portas do mundo secreto dos operadores de alta frequência: a maneira mais controversa de se investir na atualidade; Os operadores buscando proteger os algorítimos que eles passaram tanto tempo aperfeiçoando, quase nunca falam com a imprensa ou revelam detalhes sobre como eles funcionam. The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 São Paulo começa uma série de apresentações pelo mundo, nos mais importante centros financeiros: Seoul, South Korea, março 28; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 11 de abril; Doha, Qatar, 18 de abril; Warsaw, Poland, 11 de maio; Kiev, Ukraine, 18 de maio; Singapore, 26 de maio; Shanghai, China, 6 de junho; Jakarta, Indonesia, 13 de junho; Mexico City, Mexico, 27 julho; Hong Kong, 4 de agosto, e Moscow, Russia, 4 de agosto.

High Frequency Trading in Brazil, Mirage or Miracle? Find out at The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo, February 8th

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo

Christian Zimmer, Head of Quantitative Trading and Research, and Hellinton Hatsuo Takada, Quantitative Trader, of Itaú Asset Management, compare the term high-frequency trading (HFT) to ‘Cleopatra’– sexy and mysterious and everyone is keen to know more about it. But the term HFT speaks for itself, so is it wasting time to go over it again? Probably not for the attendees to The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX, February 8th, BM&FBovespa, to be led by Mr. Edgar Perez, Adjunct Professor at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University.

Zimmer and Hatsuo suggest at FIX GLOBAL TRADING to look at the underlying trading strategies. The incentives an exchange should create to attract flow must be adjusted to the strategies that are really needed. Each strategy deserves a different set of policies and this will help the diversification of the traders’ strategies.

A trader using a market maker strategy can live with exchange fees as long as the bid-ask spread is sufficiently high. If the spread narrows, the costs become crucial and the exchange must lower the fees in order to keep this client in the market. On the other hand, a directional trader has different issues; if the fees are high, a trader must wait longer for a relevant price move so that they can capitalize on their position. Contrary to the market maker, the directional trader loves to see narrow bid-ask spreads. There would be no need to lower fees when the spread is close. The same is true for the statistical arbitrage traders.

When looking at the third party analyses of HFT in the international markets, Zimmer and Hatsuo see that the most common strategy is the market maker approach. This fact is strongly influenced by market fragmentation, which they do not have in Brazil. Fragmentation creates new intermarket trades, which could qualify as arbitrage trades, but not necessarily as market maker trades. Fragmentation also makes exchanges and other venues compete for the customers that provide liquidity and, as a result, give incentives to market makers. As mentioned above, Brazil does not have a fragmented market and BM&FBOVESPA does not see it necessary to ask for more liquidity. At least not as long as international capital flows are strong and increasing. Liquidity is needed in second tier shares and below.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo, led by Edgar Perez, author, The Speed Traders,  will reveal 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. The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo kicks off a series of presentations in the world’s most important financial centers: Dubai, January 25; Seoul, South Korea, March 28; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, April 11; Warsaw, Poland, May 11; Kiev, Ukraine, May 18; Singapore, May 26; Shanghai, China, June 6; Jakarta, Indonesia, June 13; Mexico City, Mexico, July 27; Hong Kong, August 4, and Moscow, Russia, August 10.

Why Emerging Markets Represent the Future for HFTs at The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo, February 8th

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo at BM&FBovespa

Emerging markets are an inviting target for high-frequency traders going forward, proclaims Advanced Trading’s Justin Grant. He contrasted it to a suggestion by Utah Senator Orrin Hatch to institute a tax on high-frequency trading. One of these key markets is Brazil, where Mr. Edgar Perez, Adjunct Professor at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, will lead The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX, February 8th, BM&FBovespa.

Earlier this year, the note continues, India’s Bombay Stock Exchange predicted computer based-trading in its $1.5 trillion stock market will double over the next three years. Meanwhile the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) is planning to debut the ASEAN Trading Link next year, which would electronically link exchanges in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia are also slated to link their exchanges to ASEAN Trading Link in 2012. Liquidity in those markets will undoubtedly surge as they mature, making them an enticing target for high-frequency trading firms.

Brazil probably represents the best opportunity for high-frequency traders over the near term. Earlier this month it lifted a financial transaction tax of its own for foreign investors and the BM&FBovespa has been aggressive in its efforts to boost trading volumes and attract liquidity.

So even as lawmakers in the U.S. and Europe weigh the merits of a Tobin Tax, a world of opportunity awaits high-frequency traders overseas. Perhaps the CBO is wrong in its assessment. The U.S. doesn’t need a tax to diminish its role as the premier market. Seems that’s happening anyway.
The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo will reveal 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. The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo kicks off a series of presentations in the world’s most important financial centers: Dubai, January 25; Seoul, South Korea, March 28; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, April 11; Warsaw, Poland, May 11; Kiev, Ukraine, May 18; Singapore, May 26; Shanghai, China, June 6; Jakarta, Indonesia, June 13; Mexico City, Mexico, July 27; Hong Kong, August 4, and Moscow, Russia, August 10.

Burj Al Arab, Dubai - The World's Only 7-Star Hotel

Burj Al Arab, the luxury hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates managed by the Jumeirah Group and built by Said Khalil, characterizes itself as the world’s only “7-star” property. Why? It features the tallest atrium lobby in the world at 180 meters. It is formed by the building’s V-shaped span, which dominates the interior of the hotel, and takes up over 1/3 of the interior space. It is one of the most expensive hotels in the world. The cost of staying at a suite begins at $1,000 per night. The Royal Suite is the most expensive, at $28,000 per night. Such hyperbole is not unlike terms employed to describe high-frequency trading, topic of Edgar Perez’s The Speed Traders Workshop 2012Dubai on January 25.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2011: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX

2nd Private Equity Convention Russia (CIS) & Eurasia, Sofitel London St James

Edgar Perez, Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop 2011: The Present and Future of High-Frequency Trading (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), will present at the 2nd Private Equity Convention Russia (CIS) & Eurasia (http://www.gdforum.co.uk/index.php?page=11&id=7), ‘invitation-only’ event exclusively designed for leading International Investors and Limited Partners (LPs) to meet the highest-quality General Partners (GPs) operating in Russia, CIS and Eurasia. Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), will participate on the discussion ‘Is “Silicon Valley” Unique and Can it be Reproduced in Eurasia?’, with Yury Frantsuzov, Strategic Business Development Manager with Intel, Peter Loukianoff , Managing Partner  with Almaz Capital Partners, and Dr. Jan Dauman, Director and Senior Partner, Russia with CET (Central Europe Trust).

The aim of this convention – “meeting of minds” is to bring together leading names in private equity from across the largest and the most interesting continents on the planet and discuss the issues and opportunities in the private equity industry, acquire new business contacts in a relaxed and comfortable environment. Three out of four BRIC countries (Russia, India and China) are located here, plus a score of other extremely interesting emerging markets and “old economies”. The potential for growth in the private equity on this continent is immense. Some discussion groups “skewed” towards Russia and the CIS private equity industry. Nevertheless, Russia is the country that lies both in Europe and Asia and a huge market in itself. We strongly believe that the most interesting opportunities lie on the borderlines of interests, discussions and in the forging of personal relationships.

2nd Private Equity Convention Russia (CIS) & Eurasiawill be held at the stunning Sofitel London St James, located in the former home of Cox’s and King’s bank in the very heart of London, England. This sympathetically renovated building is English heritage grade II listed and now houses one of London’s most unique five-star hotels – combining traditional British design with a contemporary style that is unmistakably French. Sofitel London St James has one of the finest addresses in London, right on the corner of Pall Mall and Waterloo Place. The hotel lies in the heart of St. James’s, a prestigious and lively district of London, within walking distance of St. James’s Park and Buckingham Palace. The hotel is also less than a five minute stroll from Trafalgar Square, city centre theatres and the fabulous shopping on Regent, Piccadilly, Oxford and Bond streets.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2011, led by Edgar Perez, will reveal 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.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2011: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX

The Speed Traders Workshop 2011 Hong Kong

Edgar Perez will lead The Speed Traders Workshop 2011: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), in Hong Kong, December 12, 2011. Mr. Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), will reveal at The Speed Traders Workshop 2011 Hong Kong  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.

Charles Li, Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEx), published on 26 July an article in Chinese on HKEx’s market reform; in the article, he pointed out that the enhancement of their infrastructure was a top priority in the Strategic Plan.  They had begun upgrading their trading and information systems to the next generation, building a new data centre in Tseung Kwan O and developing hosting services.

In addition, he indicated that he didn’t not agree with the view that enhancing their IT infrastructure favored high frequency traders or the large brokers.  Building the IT infrastructure was for him like building a highway: “We should not abandon highway construction just because a few do not want to invest in new cars or a few fear accidents.  We believe Hong Kong’s current market framework, which includes stamp duty, effectively limits high-frequency trading, just like a highway with many toll booths discourages speeding.  Besides, even if we don’t build the highway, we cannot prevent others from doing so and diverting liquidity, leading to market fragmentation.” No doubt it won’t long before high-frequency trading races on Hong Kong’s fast information highways.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2011 Hong Kong (http://thespeedtradersworkshophk.eventbrite.com) 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 2011Hong Kong will reveal 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 will lead The Speed Traders Workshop 2012: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), in Dubai, January 25, 2012. Mr. Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), will reveal at The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Dubai 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.

Dubai’s gross domestic product as of 2008 was US$ 82.11 billion. Although Dubai’s economy was built on the back of the oil industry, revenues from oil and natural gas currently account for less than 6% of the emirate’s revenues. It is estimated that Dubai produces 50,000 to 70,000 barrels (11,000 m3) of oil a day and substantial quantities of gas from offshore fields. The emirate’s share in UAE’s gas revenues is about 2%. Dubai’s oil reserves have diminished significantly and are expected to be exhausted in 20 years. Real estate and construction (22.6%), trade (16%), entrepôt (15%) and financial services (11%) are the largest contributors to Dubai’s economy. Dubai’s top exporting destinations include India (US$ 5.8 billion), Switzerland (US$ 2.37 billion) and Saudi Arabia (US$ 0.57 billion). Dubai’s top re-exporting destinations include India (US$ 6.53 billion), Iran (US$ 5.8 billion) and Iraq (US$ 2.8 billion). The emirate’s top import sources are India (US$ 12.55 billion), China (US$ 11.52 billion) and the United States (US$ 7.57 billion). As of 2009 India was Dubai’s largest trade partner.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Dubai 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.

Mr. Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), was featured on Channel NewsAsia, Asia Business Tonight, on the upcoming roll-out plan of ASEAN Trading Link.

The roll-out plan of the ASEAN Trading Link will see the collaboration of seven major stock exchanges in Asia, and experts have warned stock exchanges to approach the plans with deliberation. Announced on Thursday, the first stage will have the Singapore Exchange and Bursa Malaysia connected by June 2012. However, experts said there could be challenges along the way.

The Speed Traders author Edgar Perez said: “It’s been difficult in regulating markets individually – the US markets and specifically European countries’ and each country in Asia. Imagine what is going to be the case whenever you have different exchanges that are totally interconnected? At this moment, we are living in a world where… any change in any part of the world can easily be transmitted to other exchanges. Therefore, the potential for trouble exists there and it’s probably higher than in the past.”

The Speed Traders Workshop 2011, "The Present and Future of High-Frequency Trading"

The Speed Traders Workshop 2011

Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World (http://www.thespeedtraders.com), will present first ever The Speed Traders Workshop 2011, “The Present and Future of High-Frequency Trading” (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), in Hong Kong, Chicago, Sao Paulo and Singapore. The Speed Traders Workshop 2011will be extremely helpful for all delegates who are working in finance and investments, from financial institutions, investment banks, hedge funds, pension funds, broker dealers, consultancy groups, prime brokers, solution providers and exchanges, who wish to gain a thorough understanding and practical knowledge of high-frequency trading.

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, today’s high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile, until now. The Speed Traders Workshop 2011 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 2011, led by Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, will reveal 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. Highlights of The Speed Traders Workshop 2011 include:

  • The first and most comprehensive initiation to the world of high-frequency trading
  • Study materials provided by Edgar Perez, the author of the latest book on the subject of speed trading, and a well-known presenter in America, Europe and Asia
  • Latest update on high-frequency trading in the world and current regulatory initiatives
  • Techniques to detect high-frequency trading in the markets
  • Key enablers of high-frequency trading in the U.S., Europe and Asia
  • Proposed regulatory initiatives after the “flash crash”
  • Up-to-date review of the future of high-frequency trading

The Speed Traders, published by McGraw-Hill Inc., is the most comprehensive, revealing work available on the most important development in trading in generations. High-frequency trading will no doubt play an ever larger role as computer technology advances and the global exchanges embrace fast electronic access. The Speed Traders explains everything there is to know about how today’s high-frequency traders make millions—one cent at a time.

For Industry Veteran, High-Frequency Trading is going to get Bigger, Stronger and more Prevalent

Posted on August 3, 2011. Filed under: Event Announcements, Flash Crash, Technology | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

For John Netto, one of the leading high-frequency traders featured in Edgar Perez’s The Speed Traders: An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, high-frequency trading is going to get bigger, stronger and more prevalent. “There are potential regulatory changes that might impact the growth of high-frequency trading; that is always a possibility. They have talked about co-location and proximity legislation but who knows how it all shakes and if the desired results from this legislation are accomplished.”

Netto is the Founder and President of M3 Capital. Mr. Netto has worked with buy-side firms, sell-side firms, and technology providers on more efficiently combining structure, strategy, and personnel to increase trading profits. Mr. Netto has presented on behalf of Eurex, CME Group, The ICE, ISE, Interactive Brokers, Thomson Reuters, Profit-Loss Forex Conferences and Golden Networking as well as appearing regularly on Forex TV, Fox Business Channel, The Money Show Video Network, and many other media outlets.

Mr. Netto sees more traditional investment managers expanding into high-frequency trading; more managers are using technology as in means of investing. Similarly, he sees more institutional investors allocating part of their asset base to quantitative trading strategies. He adds: “I think at this moment the future is more than just technology, as it is already very robust; it would be more about the adoption of the technology which will determine how fast things go. Not every exchange has the same technology or robust infrastructure; I think what we will see is that more and more firms, more and more exchanges around the world get caught up and then it will be about the interchangeability of the technology. And not just from a hardware standpoint but also from a software standpoint. Issues such as ‘what exchange trade data can we give up to another exchange trade data’, and ‘how that data gets aggregated’. Considering the current environment, the future will be more about data aggregation and data processing, and getting that data in the hands of the right people than who will build the fastest server.”

High-Frequency Trading is just Automating the Routine Tasks that Traders have been Performing for Decades, Says Infinium’s Aaron Lebovitz

Posted on July 24, 2011. Filed under: Event Announcements, Flash Crash, Practitioners, Technology | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

For Aaron Lebovitz, one of the leading high-frequency traders featured in Edgar Perez’s The Speed Traders: An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, high-frequency trading is just automating the routine tasks that traders have been performing for decades. He adds that there is a misconception that  high-frequency trading is about making money at the expense of end users. “In fact,  high-frequency trading is about innovating with  technology to reduce market frictions. When Walmart figured out how to use technology to improve logistics and reduce costs, who benefitted? The consumer. Who didn’t benefit? Sears, K-Mart, the other stores that were trying do the same thing but with a higher cost structure. The analogy is not perfect, but you get the point.”

Aaron Lebovitz

Aaron Lebovitz, Infinium Capital

Mr. Lebovitz built the Algorithmic and Event Driven Trading department at Infinium Capital Management, a proprietary capital management firm with offices in Chicago, New York and London, into an exceptional force in the industry. Infinium was founded in Chicago in 2001 and built by a core team with decades of experience in trading, software development, and financial modeling. As most  high-frequency trading firms, Infinium has no outside investors and only manages its own money. Infinium has a long history of partnering with exchanges to launch new products, increase participation in existing products and solve technology issues.

Mr. Lebovitz concludes: “The facts are that our industry has historically been secretive about its activities, for various reasons. Some of this has to do with safeguarding intellectual property, but it also has to do with the creative destruction that this technological revolution has catalyzed. Some very established, very powerful industry players saw high-frequency trading as a threat to their distribution channels, or to their trading desks’ ability to get paid for providing liquidity. That created a disincentive for high-frequency traders to advertise their presence. Now, it has become quite clear that there is a lack of information out there regarding the activities and contributions of high-frequency traders, which has in turn led to some misinformation filling the gaps. As practitioners, we have a responsibility to change that.”
