High-frequency trading (HFT) is a broad term without a precise legal or regulatory definition. It is used to describe what many characterise as a subset of algorithmic trading that involves very rapid placement of orders, in the realm of tiny fractions of a second. This book provides an overview of HFT in the equities and derivatives markets regulated by the SEC and the CFTC. It also examines the Flash Crash of 2010 and the role that HFT may have played, as well as recent regulatory developments.

High frequency trading has swept Wall Street in the past year, creating stunning profits for top tier banks and specialized trading firms. Given the success, many hedge funds and other types of trading firms are implementing or expanding high frequency strategies. As competition increases, existing strategies will become less profitable and new high-frequency strategies will be developed. In High Frequency Trading Models + Website, Dr. Gewei Ye describes the technology, architecture, and algorithms underlying current high frequency trading models, such as rebate trading, arbitrage, flash trading, and other types of trading, which exploit order flow imbalances and temporary pricing inefficiencies. He explains how to develop a HFT trading system and introduces his own system for building high frequency strategies based on behavioral algorithms. Finally, he discusses how to improve current institutional HFT strategies and suggests directions for new strategies.

In the last four decades, technological progress led to an electrification of stock tra-ding systems. It was realized that the profitability of trading strategies could be increased by employing computer algorithms to trade autonomously. This led to the implementation of High Frequency Trading (HFT). Theoretically HFT should increase efficiency in financial markets but it seems that, at least under certain circumstances, it causes market instability. The aim of this paper is to discuss the effect of HFT on market quality and why HFT cannot be fully explained by the neoclassical theory of economics. Therefore, the controversial positions in literature will be presented and discussed. It is especially referred to the influence of HFT on liquidity, price discovery and volatility. Primarily, its negative effect on volatility seems to contravene the modern finance. Furthermore, in the course of this work it will be illustrated that, by employing strict regulation of financial markets, this negative impact cannot be reduced to a suf-ficient extent in order for HFT to be characterized as market optimizing, accor-ding to the neoclassical theory of economics."

This comprehensive examination of high frequency trading looks beyond mathematical models, which are the subject of most HFT books, to the mechanics of the marketplace. In 25 chapters, researchers probe the intricate nature of high frequency market dynamics, market structure, back-office processes, and regulation. They look deeply into computing infrastructure, describing data sources, formats, and required processing rates as well as software architecture and current technologies. They also create contexts, explaining the historical rise of automated trading systems, corresponding technological advances in hardware and software, and the evolution of the trading landscape. Developed for students and professionals who want more than discussions on the econometrics of the modelling process, The Handbook of High Frequency Trading explains the entirety of this controversial trading strategy. Answers all questions about high frequency trading without being limited to mathematical modelling Illuminates market dynamics, processes, and regulations Explains how high frequency trading evolved and predicts its future developments

Research on the impact of high frequency trading (HFT) on commodity markets is scarce. This thesis investigates a dataset containing high frequency quotes in the gold and silver future market hosted on COMEX. Analysing the relationship between the number of quote updates and variance ratios I find that a higher number of quote updates is associated with price series that are more similar to a random walk. I also discover that the pattern of the frequency of quote updates differs significantly between the two markets, likely reflecting a higher degree of financialization of the gold future. I also discover that short term returns of the gold and silver future calculated from best bid and ask midpoints are on average less efficient than the returns of US small cap stocks.

Global capital markets have undergone fundamental transformations in recent years and, as a result, have become extraordinarily complex and opaque. Trading space is no longer measured in minutes or seconds but in time units beyond human perception: milliseconds, microseconds, and even nanoseconds. Technological advances have thus scaled up imperceptible and previously irrelevant time differences into operationally manageable and enormously profitable business opportunities for those with the proper high-tech trading tools. These tools include the fastest private communication and trading lines, the most powerful computers and sophisticated algorithms capable of speedily analysing incoming news and trading data and determining optimal trading strategies in microseconds, as well as the possession of gigantic collections of historic and real-time market data. Fragmented capital markets are also becoming a rapidly growing reality in Europe and Asia, and are an established feature of U.S. trading. This raises urgent market governance issues that have largely been overlooked. Global Algorithmic Capital Markets seeks to understand how recent market transformations are affecting core public policy objectives such as investor protection and reduction of systemic risk, as well as fairness, efficiency, and transparency. The operation and health of capital markets affect all of us and have profound implications for equality and justice in society. This unique set of chapters by leading scholars, industry insiders, and regulators discusses ways to strengthen market governance for the benefit of society at whole.

The debate about high frequency trading (HFT) has been raging since around the beginning of 2010, after a couple of years of record profits in 2008 and 2009 were reported upon by the press with a generally negative tone. But, it was manageable. Regulators were making careful, but mostly correct moves to fix what needed fixing. Until it all came crashing down. With the release of Michael Lewis's latest best-seller, Flash Boys, potential progress was dramatically and possibly irrevocably set back. This e-only book will provide a close look at the topic of high frequency trading in its various aspects: what it is, how it's done, why it matters, and whether we should have concerns.

High-frequency trading uses algorithms with the purpose of executing financial orders in split seconds and without human intervention. I develop a game-theoretical model in order to investigate the decision-making of high-frequency traders concerning the investment into HFT technologies and the choice of manipulative quote stuffing. I find that HFT investment can constitute a prisoner's dilemma for both collective investments (e.g. fiber optic cable) and individual co-location services. This might lead to a socially wasteful arms race that can be prevented by regulators artificially increasing the investment costs. Moreover, I find that a non-manipulative equilibrium cannot exist due to individual incentives to deviate. Hence, regulatory authorities are highly requested to minimize the negative externalities generated through quote stuffing and HFT in general.

In Flash Boys, Michael Lewis alleged that the entire U.S. stock market is rigged. This is an extraordinarily serious accusation. If it is true that a conspiracy of stock exchanges, banks, regulators and high-frequency traders has rigged the market, this has profound implications for every aspect of our financial system. It's rather surprising, then, that this book alleging a vast high-frequency trading conspiracy included no high-frequency traders. Flash Boys lacks a single insider's account, and it shows. Electronic trading is extremely complicated, and if you neglect to talk to any electronic traders, you're probably going to get it wrong. Flash Boys: Not So Fast, written by a former high-frequency trading executive and regulatory compliance expert, provides the missing insider's perspective on today's stock market and answers the question of whether or not Michael Lewis is right. Not So Fast reviews the alleged scams described by Lewis and applies the same rigorous analysis that real trading strategies are subjected to, methodically walking through them step by step and explaining what is actually possible in today's markets and what is not. Extensively researched and documented, Not So Fast provides a clear, accurate picture of how today's markets operate, including what works, what doesn't work, and what changes need to be made.
