(September 28, 2011, New York) Professor Dale Rosenthal, Assistant Professor of Finance, University of Illinois at Chicago, will speak 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. The world's most influential practitioners and experts in high-frequency trading will cover the most relevant issues in the industry:

Professor Rosenthal began his financial career as a programmer/analyst intern for the block trading desk at Goldman Sachs. He then worked for Long-Term Capital Management as a strategist in David Modest's equity derivatives group. He remained at LTCM for five years — through the 1998 implosion and 1998-2000 consortium period. Post-LTCM, he was a quantitative researcher and proprietary trader at Morgan Stanley's Equity Trading Lab (an algorithmic trading group). His proprietary trading made about $40MM/year for the bank; his research resulted in faster, less expensive, and more reliable electronic order execution. His current areas of research include market microstructure and liquidity; financial econometrics; financial firm distress and systemic risk; and, delays in processing and publishing financial information. He has been quoted by the Medill News Service, Barron's, the Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business, and Portfolio Magazine; appeared on TV for First Business Morning News, WTTW's Chicago Tonight, and Fox Business News (live); and, was interviewed live on Bloomberg Radio. Professor Rosenthal graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in electrical engineering and the University of Chicago with a Ph.D. in statistics.
