Title

The Present and Future of High-Frequency Trading

Event Description

Synopsis

The U.S. and European capital markets have been through a number of developments, from the implementation of sophisticated trading technology to the evolution of their regulatory frameworks, which have fostered the emergence of High-Frequency Trading strategies. Despite the controversy surrounding high-frequency trading, speed traders will continue finding alpha-generating opportunities by trading new asset classes in new geographies employing more sophisticated tools than ever. While in U.S. equity markets, High-Frequency Trading has decreased to 53% of stock-market trading volume (from 61% in 2009), in U.S. futures markets, High-Frequency Trading now accounts for 28% of the total volume (an increase from 22% in 2009), and on foreign-exchange, roughly 30% as of 2010 (compared with 13% in 2004). Similarly, High-Frequency Trading accounts now for around 15% of Asia-Pacific equity trading volumes, 45% in Japan, 6% of Brazil’s BM&Fbovespa’s total volume and 25% of orders in India’s Bombay Stock Exchange; all in all, penetration levels way below U.S. and European levels, which represents an area of opportunity that has not been lost to financial institutions, hedge funds and traders.
