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

Golden Networking brings Tech2Trade Expo 2013 (, 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 (

(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 (, "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.

"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.
