The Speed Traders' Author to Host WSJ-Featured High-Frequency Trading Happy Hour at W Hotel

Golden Networking’s High-Frequency Trading Happy Hour, Tuesday June 14, will be hosted by Edgar Perez, author of the recently published book, The Speed Traders, by McGraw-Hill Inc. This reception will bring together the most influential audience of high-frequency and quantitative trading professionals. High-Frequency Trading Happy Hour, featured in The Wall Street Journal, has congregated high-frequency (and some low-frequency too) traders, quants, managers, investors and key decision makers for evenings of networking and cocktail every 2nd Tuesday for the last 15 months.

High-frequency traders have been called many things—from masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators. Everyone in the business of investing has an opinion of speed traders, but how many really understand how they operate? The shadow people of the investing world, today's high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile—until now. In this new title, The Speed Traders, Mr. Perez opens the door to the secretive world of high-frequency trading (HFT). Inside, prominent figures of HFT drop their guard and speak with unprecedented candidness about their trade.

The Speed Traders, published by McGraw-Hill Inc., is the most comprehensive, revealing work available on the most important development in trading in generations. High-frequency trading will no doubt play an ever larger role as computer technology advances and the global exchanges embrace fast electronic access. The Speed Traders explains everything there is to know about how today's high-frequency traders make millions—one cent at a time.
