last Saturday, I kicked off the new series of events in Toronto as host of the Toronto Forex Meetup Group by FXStreet.com
Here below find the account that event.
As usual I offered freely part of my research, this time, on the effects of HFT on other classes and families of Algos, those that I used in my own trading edge. Read below
This November we welcomed CMC Markets as new sponsor of the FXStreet Toronto trading group. CMC Markets has been an established player in the industry for 25 years. Their global presence covers Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Last Saturday, 15th of November, we held our first event together at the Sheraton Parkaway Conference Centre for an hour of learning about Forex. Practical considerations on the effects of HFT on price was the topic choosen by Giuseppe Basile, CMT, swing trader, IFTA associate and group host.
Giuseppe delighted us with an analysis on HFT. He provided a general vision on the concept and explained the effect on price structure, how does it change and the underlying “war” between classes and families of algorithms (not only HFT). The effects of HFT on methods attempt to frame price structure and show a real market example during planned news and what can happen in those cases.
If you missed it or just want to refresh the concepts, you have the chance to watch the full presentation here.
