How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets 'RIGGED' by Wall Street's 'Flash Boys', High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools
Global scrutiny of high-frequency trading and whether it gives some investors unfair advantage has intensified amid government probes and the March 31, 2014 publication of "Flash Boys" by Michael Lewis. While those examinations have focused mostly on U.S. equity markets, such as dark pools run by banks and broker-dealers and exchanges owned by companies including Nasdaq OMX, IntercontinentalExchange Group's NYSE Euronext and Bats Global Markets, high-frequency traders are active internationally in futures, FX and fixed income markets, as they also run multi-asset strategies.
High-frequency traders have been called many things, from emerging masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators and thieves. 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, the first and most comprehensive initiation to the world of high-frequency trading, opens the door to the secretive world of computerized low-latency 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 try to disclose as little as possible about how they operate.
The Speed Traders Workshop covers the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil. The “flash crash”, the suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital's trading malfunction and NASDAQ's Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with participants.
