Hi PMTers, anybody here encountered high frequency trading? I'm not talking about day trading but automated high frequency trading. Heard negative things about robots and programs and how they cannot adjust to changing markets.. Wondering if same things applies here. A google search didn't show anything conclusive. Thanks

High frequency trading controls as much as 70% of stocks being traded everyday in the US.

It is no wonder that computer glitches do happen with alarming frequency.

Automated trading is created by Physicists (or graduates of physics and other sciences) hired by investment bankers and hedge funds to developed algorithms that will bring tremendous profits.

High frequency trades (HFT) normally involves superfast network connections preferably at the shortest distance between world stock exchanges such as NYSE, NASDAQ, BATS, etc.

In simple terms - HFT was develop to monitor and react to collective human emotions on a typical trading day.

Gud am bro! That an interesting topic! By using a fast frequency you can be ahead of other buyers and sellers. The stock exchange securities in the US are still monitoring and developing the technology to counter that secretly.it is very difficult to monitor thousands of frequencies.At present it is still a theory or speculations.We do not have HFT here in the phil dont worry.😀

Technically, HFT is all about beating the gun, as Americans say it.

It's racing ahead of the order of others or buying something selling at Php 1.00 per share before others who want to buy it can get the order to the exchange, so the legitimate buyer will be forced to buy it at 1.03 or something like that. They exploit loopholes in a microsecond and the only difference really is their fast connection.

This is being regulated now by tweaking the fiber optic cables that go to the Exchange.

HFT requires big investments in infra/IT but the local market maybe still too small for HFT to make sense. For it to work, brokers should be able to offer some form of API or FIX connectivity.
