      The Algo Trading Conference No Quant Can Miss,
      High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 and
                         London
  Golden Networking brings the World’s Most Influential High-Frequency Trading Conference Series,
    High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, now in London, December 12 (http://www.High-
                                      Frequency-Trading-Conference.com)

(October 17, 2012, New York) As mentioned by Matt Koppenheffer from The Motley Fool, high-frequency
trading is a flavor of trading that leverages computers and the speed of super-fast data connections to make
lightning-quick trades, and lots of them. This means that, often, the trader's servers are situated in the same data
center as the exchange's servers. While there's no single strategy of a high-frequency trader -- they might be acting
like a market maker, or playing index arbitrageur -- the common thread is that they all rely on speed to succeed.


As the high-frequency trading industry has grown, though, the number of quotes has exploded - and, mind you,
we're talking just quotes here, because actual trading has not grown anywhere near as much. The reason that high-
frequency traders are putting out this many quotes isn't entirely clear. In some cases, it may simply be offering
and cancelling quotes the same way any market maker would;, but in other cases, it may be programs sending out
odd quotes in an effort to mislead other market participants.


Ever since the meltdown at Knight Capital earlier last August, the discussion over speed trading has exploded,
right on time to consider attending the most influential high-frequency trading conference in the world, Golden
Networking‘s High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, this time in London, December 12.

With insightful keynote speeches and highly regarded panels, everybody involved in high-frequency trading will
gain inside knowledge at High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, How Knight Capital's 'Knightmare on
Wall Street' Could Transform the Regulatory Landscape and Impact Investors, Speed Traders and Brokers", about
the latest technologies that can drastically optimize HFT infrastructures and take a first look at upcoming
regulations that could radically change the HFT firms’ business model. Topics that will be discussed at High
Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 include the movement toward emerging markets, every time more
attuned to the use of bots, the regulatory environment, how new technologies are changing the game, including
FPGA applications, and a look at the upcoming regulatory changes that will definitely impact how speed traders
capture alpha.

High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 is produced by Golden Networking
(http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs
and investors. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to
