    The Future of HFT at Tech2Trade Expo 2013 New York City, London, Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt

    Golden Networking brings Tech2Trade Expo 2013 (www.Tech2TradeExpo.com), World's Most Influential Alternative Investments Conference Series, including High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges," New York City, London, Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt (www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com)

    (May 29, 2013, New York City) There has been a dramatic shift in how instruments are traded in the market. With high frequency trading able to detect price discrepancies in microseconds, aided by technology, regulators have grown increasingly concerned about its impact in market structure and fairness. What is the outlook for the markets when all participants engage in the arms race of super smart algorithms? Where will institutional and retail investors find opportunities? Conversely, could we imagine a world without high-frequency trading?

    These questions will be debated at Tech2Trade Expo 2013's High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 (www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com), "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges", this July 30 in New York City, September 18 in London., October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt.

    As reported by CNBC, laser beams and microwave dishes are some of the realities in the future of high-frequency trading, the latest weapons in an arms race to shave milliseconds off dealing times in the shadowy world of high speed, computerized financial trading. Traders, who make money by exploiting tiny, lightning-fast price changes on exchanges are now targeting Europe and Asia after skirmishing in the U.S.

    The first microwave connections between London and Frankfurt have been launched, cutting the time to send a trade by about 40 percent compared with fiber optic cables. Behind the scenes, rivals are also racing to trim thousandths of seconds from routes to Moscow, Hong Kong and Tokyo, while also scrambling to find new technologies, including the use of drones as platforms for wireless links. The race to transmit at nearly the speed of light comes as regulators in Europe and the U.S. debate cracking down on a sector accused of increasing market volatility and multiplying the risk of a market meltdown.

    "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges," is the theme of High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, forum that will provide attendees in New York City, London., Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt with the most up-to-date review of where this ever-changing industry stands through an insightful keynote speeches and thought-provoking panels with leaders in the field. Recognized experts, regulators, and strategists, will return to High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 to provide the information practitioners are looking for in an open and unbiased environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.

    High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, co-located with Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2013 and Derivatives Trading Forum 2013, is produced by Golden Networking (www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs and investors.

    (May 29, 2013, New York City) Algorithms are becoming more prevalent, faster, smarter, more self-adaptive and geographically distributed and embracing cross asset classes trading and geographies.

    How Regulations will Change High-Frequency Trading at Tech2Trade Expo 2013 in New York and London

    Golden Networking brings Tech2Trade Expo 2013 (www.Tech2TradeExpo.com), World's Most Influential Alternative Investments Conference Series, including High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges," New York City, London, Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt (www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com)

    (May 29, 2013, New York City) With high-frequency trading the subject of great controversy and debate, many regulations will be bound to change. How will regulations impact the way traders are capturing alpha? Would there be restrictions that can possibly harm algorithmic trading? How the economic and political landscape might impact the pace and severity of these changes?

    These questions will be debated at Tech2Trade Expo 2013's High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 (www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com), "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges", this July 30 in New York City, September 18 in London., October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt.

    For instance, the German Parliament adopted this month new regulatory requirements for algorithmic and high frequency trading. In the future, high frequency traders on German regulated markets or MTFs will be subject to a license requirement. On 28 February 2013 the German Parliament adopted the High Frequency Trading Act (Hochfrequenzhandelsgesetz, the HFT Act). The HFT Act introduces a license requirement for high frequency traders, imposes conduct of business rules and organisational requirements for algorithmic trading and specifies the definition of market abuse. To a large extent these regulatory requirements anticipate regulations that are currently discussed on the European level in the context of the revision of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) and the Market Abuse Directive.
