High-frequency trading (HFT) is the most controversial form of investing today, and speed traders have generally flown under the radar. In the name of protecting the algorithms they have spent so much time perfecting, they almost never talk to the press and disclose as little as possible about how they operate—until now.
The Speed Traders reveals how leading HFT players are succeeding in the global markets and driving the development of algorithmic trading at breakneck speeds.
The Speed Traders includes personal interviews with the masters of the HFT universe, who shed light on what HFT is, the essential role it plays in the world’s most active exchanges, and how they generate consistent profits at unprecedented rates and volumes. Among the HFT luminaries you’ll hear from are:
