Golden Networking The Speed Traders Workshop 2015 Golden Networking

Course Overview

The Speed Traders Workshop, the first and most comprehensive initiation to the world of electronic trading, opens the door to the secretive world of computerized low-latency trading, the most controversial form of investing today; in the name of protecting the algorithms they have spent so much time perfecting, speed traders almost never talk to the press and try to disclose as little as possible about how they operate.

What will I learn?

  • Key enablers of high-frequency trading in the U.S., Europe and Asia
  • Strategies high-frequency traders leverage to find alpha in up and down markets
