In this DeepDive, we will be exploring various parts of algorithmic trading. We will dive deep into HFT and the merits of high-frequency trading in general, and then we will discuss the different components of algorithmic trading systems and what aspects to consider.
Finally, we will talk about the landscape, the origins of algorithmic trading, how it's changed over the years, and where we see it going in the future.
- What is high-frequency trading?
- Is high-frequency trading good for markets?
- What products/markets lend themselves to algorithmic trading, and what are the similarities/differences between them?
- What are some different market structures and their implications (ie price-time vs. price-size)?
- What does the algorithmic trading ecosystem look like, and where do we see it going?
- Who are companies in this space, how they are structured, and what are they looking for in hiring?
- Analysis of different components of trading systems from microstructure to alpha to latency to risk management.
Juthica Chou is a former algorithmic trader. She spent 7 years trading derivatives at Goldman Sachs, specializing in high-frequency options market-making across equities, indices, VIX, and currencies/commodities. Juthica graduated from MIT with a B.S. in Mathematics with Computer Science.
