Course Description

In the last decade, algorithmic trading (AT) and high-frequency trading (HFT) have come to dominate the trading world. Computer-assisted rule-based algorithmic trading uses dedicated programs that make automated trading decisions to place orders. AT splits large-sized orders and places these split orders at different times and even manages trade orders after their submission.

The algorithms also dynamically control the schedule of sending orders to the market. These algorithms read real-time high-speed data feeds, detect trading signals, identify appropriate price levels and then place trade orders once they identify a suitable opportunity. They can also detect arbitrage opportunities and can place trades based on trend following, news events, and even speculation.
