Zero Hedge: Goodbye High Frequency Trading. Really?

High-Frequency TradingTyler Durden (not a real name of course) wrote that the crusade against High Frequency Trading which Zero Hedge started well over two years ago, was now coming to an end. Following a Reuters report that U.S. securities regulators had "taken the unprecedented step of asking high-frequency trading firms to hand over the details of their trading strategies, and in some cases, their secret computer codes," he concluded this was the end for HFT. Not so fast; this is an ever-evolving field, as the keynotes and discussions at Golden Networking’s High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2011 Chicago, "How Speed Traders Leverage Cutting-Edge Strategies in the Post-Flash Crash World" (http://www.HFTLeadersForum.com), October 3-5 will demonstrate. This forum will include keynotes by:

·         Mr. Bart Chilton, Commissioner, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission

·         Mr. Adam Afshar, Chief Executive Officer and President, Hyde Park Global

·         Mr. Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders

·         Mr. Jonathan Brograard, Professor of Finance, University of Washington's Foster School of Business

·         Professor Torben Andersen, Professor of Finance, Kellogg School of Management
