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

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。
