About the Book:

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 The Speed Traders, Edgar Perez, founder of the prestigious business networking community Golden Networking, 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.

Perez begins with an overview of computerized trading, which formally began on February 8, 1971, when NASDAQ launched the world’s first electronic market with 2,500 over-the-counter stocks and which has evolved into the present-day practice of making multiple trades in a matter of microseconds. He then picks the brains of today’s top players. Manoj Narang (Tradeworx), Peter van Kleef (Lakeview Arbitrage), and Aaron Lebovitz (Infinium Capital Management) are just a few of the luminaries who decided to break their silence and speak openly to Perez. Virtually all of the expertise available from the world of speed trading is packed into these pages.

You’ll get insight from HFT’s most influential trailblazers on the important issues, including:

  • The basics of launching an HFT platform
  • The important role speed traders play in providing market liquidity
  • The real story behind the “flash crash” of May 2010
  • Emerging global HFT markets
  • M&A and consolidation among the world’s biggest exchanges

The Speed Traders 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.

Essential reading for regulators and investors alike, The Speed Traders explains everything there is to know about how today’s high-frequency traders make millions—one cent at a time.
