The Speed Traders Workshop 2012

2012年6月第二个交易日,上证指数因为特殊的波动引发市场关注。来自监管当局的消息称,交易所已经注意到了市场中的高频交易,但未发现有市场操纵行为。

将通过计算机控制的高频交易(High-frequency Trading,简称HFT)行为与人为的操纵市场联系到一起引人无限遐思。高频交易到底是加剧市场波动还是缩短市场波动?如何监管高频交易?是否应该像 对“粮仓中的老鼠”一样,限制高频交易?这都是摆在全球监管者面前的一道难题。尤其对于散户众多的中国证券市场,高频交易又会成为何种角色?

“美国各界仍在争论,焦点是该不该对高频交易有限制,高频交易到底是利大于弊还是弊大于利。”纽约华尔街一家全球宏观型对冲基金数量交易组的数量投资经理杨旭对财新记者表示。

Mr. Edgar Perez, Director of The Speed Traders Workshop

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。

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。

Alta frequência deve Girar 20% da Bolsa até o Fim do Ano na BM&FBovespa, Declarou Edgar Perez, Autor de The Speed Traders

Posted on February 7, 2012. Filed under: Event Announcements, Exchanges, Practitioners, Strategies, Technology | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Sao Paulo, From Brazil to South Korea to Malaysia to Qatar to Poland and Beyond

Edgar Perez, The Speed Traders Workshop 2012

Edgar Perez, Professor Adjunto da Polytechnic Institute, New York University e autor de The Speed Traders, foi citado em Valor Econômico. Perez está em visita ao Brasil nesta semana para apresentar 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 (http://thespeedtradersworkshopsaopaulo.eventbrite.com), 8 de Fevereiro.

Valor Econômico é o maior jornal de economia, finanças e negócios do Brasil; é fruto da parceira entre dois dos maiores grupos de comunicação do país, as Organizações Globo e a Folha de S.Paulo, e teve sua primeira edição lançada em 2 de maio de 2000. O Valor é reconhecido pela relevância de seu conteúdo, bem como pela profundidade com que aborda assuntos referentes ao mundo dos negócios, economia e finanças. Graças à força de sua marca, o jornal ganhou diversos prêmios e é considerado um dos três veículos mais admirados do país, na categoria Jornal.

“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.

'How Speed Traders Leverage Cutting-Edge Strategies in the Post-Flash Crash World' at São Paulo School of Economics, Fundação Getulio Vargas, with Edgar Perez, The Speed Traders Workshop 2012

São Paulo School of Economics, Fundação Getulio Vargas

Edgar Perez will deliver an exclusive presentation on ‘How Speed Traders Leverage Cutting-Edge Strategies in the Post-Flash Crash World’ to students, faculty and alumni of the Escola de Economia de São Paulo da Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV-EESP), Brazil, January 30th, 2012. Mr. Perez, the author of The Speed Traders, Modern Finance Bookof 2012, will review current developments in the algorithmic and high frequency worlds and opportunities and challenges for the industry moving forward.

São Paulo School of Economics (Escola de Economia de São Paulo) started the activities of its undergraduate course in 2004. Before that, the undergraduation activities of Fundação Getulio Vargas, in São Paulo, concentrated in the areas of public and private business administration. However, since the 80´s FGV already offered graduation courses in Economics at FGV-EAESP. Thus, aiming at enlarging the scope of its action, it created São Paulo School of Economics, encompassing the undergraduate course, the academic and professional graduate courses and the continuing education and specialization courses in Economics. In creating São Paulo School of Economics FGV had as its purpose the advancement of a centre of excellence in learning and research which contributed to the economic and social development of the country and to the pursuit of a national identity.

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.”

For Renowned Speed Trader, Humans Not Allowed Anywhere Near High-Frequency Execution System

Posted on July 27, 2011. Filed under: Flash Crash, Strategies, Technology | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

It took a while for Adam Afshar, 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, to believe that the markets were more or less efficient under normal circumstances and to realize that the analysts at most firms provided no value and sometimes a negative value. He says, “My first attempt at using the computer was to build a system to help traders have better information faster to enable them or their portfolio managers to make better decisions, a sort of hybrid system where the computers are helping the humans. But, in less than a year, I realized that discretionary human participation in selection, portfolio management , or trading was so deleterious that no amount of computer power or intellectual algorithms  could mitigate it.”

Adam Afshar

Adam Afshar, Renowned Speed Trader- Hyde Park Global Investments

He adds: “It’s very important to stress this point because if the system allows human discretion at any level (idea generation, portfolio management, or trading) and your machine does not have the human discretionary elements modeled correctly in its learning algorithm (which we claim is not possible at this time), what you are left with is simply a quantitative trader  that uses certain calculations to assist his or her trading. It becomes difficult or even impossible to assess whether the success or failure was due to the calculations, formula, or algorithms . Although we can argue on the pros and cons of humans as traders, we have to agree that this method is not and cannot be scientific. It is not scientific because it is not possible to backtest a model that allows any discretionary human intervention. For example, if you have computers  that are generating trades, but the execution is done by humans, then we would argue that you cannot determine whether the success or failure of the system was due to its robust artificial intelligence  or to a very good trader, and there is no way of testing and duplicating the results. Therefore, we would argue that any backtesting becomes essentially void.”
