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. The Speed Traders Workshop
2012 Warsaw will discuss in this session:


       The need for speed and sophisticated computer programs in generating, routing, and executing orders
       Co-location and individual data feeds to minimize latency
       Time-frames for establishing and closing highly-liquid positions
       Review of the most important strategies: market making, trend following, value arbitrage and others

The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Warsaw, led by Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders, will reveal
how high-frequency trading players are succeeding in the global markets and driving the development of
algorithmic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to India, Singapore and Brazil. Highlights
of The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 Warsaw include:


       The first and most comprehensive initiation to the world of high-frequency trading
       Study materials provided by Edgar Perez, the author of the latest book on the subject of speed trading,
        and a well-known presenter in America, Europe and Asia
