Hi-Freq Now 77% Trading in Europe at High-Frequency Trading Experts Workshop 2011 Attendees to Golden Networking's High-Frequency Trading Experts Workshop 2011, New York, March 3 & 4, Sydney, March 14 & 15, Singapore, March 16 & 17 and Mumbai, April 7 & 8, Who Register by February 7 to Receive an Apple iPad®. (January 26, 2011, New York) -- High-frequency trading is catching on world-wide; according to Tabb Group LLC high-frequency trading now accounts for 77 percent of transactions in U.K. markets. Golden Networking’s High-Frequency Trading Experts Workshop 2011 New York, March 3 & 4, Sydney, March 14 & 15, Singapore, March 16 & 17 and Mumbai, April 7 & 8, will provide a thorough understanding and practical knowledge of high-frequency trading for executives and professionals working in finance and investments, from Financial Institutions, Investment Banks, Hedge Funds, Pension Funds, Broker Dealers, Consultancy Groups, Prime Brokers, Solution Providers, Exchanges, ATSs, ECNs and MTFs. Orders from long-only funds that bet stocks will rise, hedge funds and retail investors account for 23 percent of activity in continuous markets, the group said in a report today. High-frequency trading, in which firms may transact thousands of times a second, accounts for the rest. The practice makes up 35 percent of the 3.9 trillion-euro ($5.3 trillion) U.K. turnover when over-the-counter transactions and other non- continuous trading is included, Tabb said. Tabb’s data covers what it calls continuous markets where trades occur electronically, including venues where prices are publicly displayed and dark pools, where they aren’t. Over-the- counter trading, conducted away from exchanges and alternative systems, isn’t included, Tabb said. The U.K. makes up about 21 percent of all European trading, Tabb said. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is examining potential new restrictions on high-frequency computerized trading after the May 6 crash that temporarily wiped out $862 billion of stock-market value in less than 20 minutes. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which oversees brokers and their firms, is investigating manipulative activity that may rely on automated trading strategies. In Europe, which hasn’t had a similar crash, the European Commission is seeking comment on whether it should set limits on the number of orders that high-frequency traders can place, and whether to require such traders to tell regulators how their computer algorithms work. High-Frequency Trading Experts Workshop 2011 is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs, investors and diplomats, founded by former McKinsey consultant and Columbia Business School MBA Edgar Perez.
