The ultimate reference on algorithmic and high frequency trading is now available on DVD; no other than Edgar Perez, the former McKinsey consultant, Adjunct Professor at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University and author of The Speed Traders, is presenting The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 DVD Video Package: How High Frequency Traders Leverage Profitable Strategies to Find Alpha in Equities, Options, Futures and FX; Perez has been widely regarded as the preeminent speaker and networker in the specialized area of high-frequency trading.
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 Speed Traders Workshop 2012 DVD Video Package opens the door to the secretive world of high-frequency trading, the most controversial form of investing today; in the name of protecting the algorithms they have spent so much time perfecting, speed traders disclose as little as possible about how they operate. The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 DVD Video Package reveals how high-frequency trading players are succeeding in the global markets and driving the development of algorithmic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to India, Singapore and Brazil.
