    Time for Low Latency at HFT Leaders Forum 2013 in New York, 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) As high-frequency trading (HFT) moves towards multi-asset classes running multi-legged strategies demanding even faster execution, ultra-low latency performance becomes the focus. How will architectures evolve to meet the latency challenge? How helpful overclocking CPUs and leveraging FPGA coprocessors can result? How will wireless, cloud and big data technologies play in the speed race? How technology can enable modern applications to minimize latency while managing for high throughput? These issues 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, Sept. 18 in London., October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt.

    High-frequency trading strategies are highly dependent on ultra-low latency. To realize any real benefit from implementing these strategies, a firm must have a real-time, colocated, high-frequency trading platform where data is collected, and orders are created, routed and executed in sub-millisecond times. For HFT strategies speed of execution is key.

    DMA or DSA (algo) are means of executing trading flow on a selected venue by almost bypassing the brokers discretionary methods. For the lack of interaction with the broker this is sometimes referred to as no-touch. DMA flow passes directly through the DMA market gateway and onto the venue while passing though strict risk checking and position keeping algorithms. It is at this point the brokers may monitor the behavior of their DMA clients. For the purposes of high-frequency trading, the DMA must not delay orders by more than a millisecond with a few technology firms able to achieve round trip times in the microseconds. With the ability to co-locate the HFT traders black boxes with the DMA next to a venue's matching engine, ultra-low latency can be achieved.

    "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.

  • Tough Decisions To Be Made Between Venture Capital And Internet-Based Companies

    Tough Decisions to be Made Between Venture Capital and Internet-based Companies

    Venture Capital Happy Hour (www.VCHappyHour.com), June 4, 6PM, Will Bring Together Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors, Seeders, Entrepreneurs, Technologists and Visionaries for an Evening of Networking and Cocktails in New York City

    (May 28, 2013, New York) As consumer Internet shares drop, like Facebook, Groupon, Pandora and Zynga, their relationships with their own investors are creating some strain between the two parties. As reported by International Venture Capital and Private Equity News, venture capital firms find themselves shielding off anxious investors who want to cash out after millions if dollars fade from holdings, as will be discussed at Venture Capital Happy Hour (www.VCHappyHour.com), on Tuesday June 4, 6:00pm.

    Rapid declines in some Internet names are putting some strain on VC relationships with their own investors who do not often pick up the phone and weigh in with their opinions. Now, the calls they do get tend to focus on that group of high-profile companies, investors and VCs say. On Tuesday, many again got walloped. Daily-deals site Groupon lost a quarter of its value after posting dismal results, bringing its total loss in market value since November to more than 70 percent, or $9 billion. Social network Facebook shed 6 percent and is now about half its value at debut.

    Venture capital funds invest in stages over many years, so it's difficult to estimate changes in the value of their holdings. Many likely made big profits on the dotcoms given the low prices they invested in initially, but the recent selloffs are compressing those returns.

    The situation underscores the delicate relationship between venture capitalists and the investors or limited partners they rely on. While the latter put in the hundreds of millions of dollars that make the funds possible, venture capitalists make the calls on what to buy, which companies to nurture, and when to exit. Now, with many high-profile consumer Internet companies well off their debut levels, many venture funds are holding stock worth as much as two-thirds less than at the IPO.

    Venture Capital Happy Hour, featured in The New York Times, is produced by Golden Networking (www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs and investors.
