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

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.

Mr. Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, and Adjunct Professor at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, will lead The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Dubai: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), on January 25, 2012. 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. The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Dubai 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.
