FINANCIAL MARKET COURSES

High Frequency Trading (HFT)

This course describes how the growth of automated trading and changes in market regulation have led high frequency trading (HFT) to the forefront of new and innovative trading system design and implementation. While such developments have undoubtedly had a positive impact on financial markets, some practitioners argue that they are nothing but a disaster waiting to happen in an already fragile marketplace.

 

The course also outlines some key algorithmic trading strategies, with a focus on liquidity provision and technical trading since these are the most commonly implemented strategies by HFT firms.

 

A number of exciting developments and innovations in information technology, communications, and data processing that are required to meet the ever-developing HFT landscape are also discussed.
