The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Chicago: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX, with author Mr. Edgar Perez
Tuesday, October 9, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (CDT)
Chicago, United States
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 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.
The Speed Traders Workshop 2012, led by Edgar 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.
"Perez illuminates the world of speed."

"There is a new day in trading and speed is the key.
Edgar Perez is the poster child."
