- Charles Huang: One in a billion27/Issue 27 Q4 2012
He was at university by the age of 14. A decade later he became the youngest-ever senior vice president at Prudential Securities. Skip ahead a few years and he was buying a Chinese commodities exchange, soon to be transformed into a high-tech trading operation. Charles Huang is clearly someone who knows how to do things quickly. Now, as chief executive of Bond Trust, he is staking out new territory on the Chinese mainland as one of the few local investment companies to employ algorithmic trading techniques. Adam Cox hears all about his remarkable story and what he thinks of the trading scene in China.

Certain mandate restrictions can hugely increase frictional costs for asset managers. A classic example is where US managers can only hold ADRs as opposed to directly holding foreign stocks, and have historically been hit hard by instrument conversion costs and FX dealing spreads. Joseph Wald, Managing Director at Knight Capital Group, shows how multi asset algorithmic execution can massively reduce these costs.
- High Frequency Trauma - What unintended consequences are in store as regulators target HFT?26/Issue 26 Q3 2012
Proposals to regulate automated trading have been coming thick and fast. Bob Giffords, with the help of a host of market participants, peers into a crystal ball to see what some of the side effects could be if any of these ideas were adopted, and whether the market has cause for concern.
- Market Data Maelstrom17th June 2011 04:20:04
Immense market data volumes and a relentless latency race to zero has created plenty of challenges for high (and low) frequency trading firms as they attempt to trade modern markets. Not least of which being the need to be able to spot faults at trading speed. Bob Giffords talks to experts from leading buy- and sell-side firms to explore the world of FPGAs, microsecond timestampting, clustered trading engines and more...

Sorry. It's MiFID again. Europe's playing-field levellers are having another go. MiFID 1 made life on the markets rather too interesting, so here comes another attempt to achieve the European trading equivalent of living happily ever after - by order. We sent cub reporter David Dungay (who retained an inconvenient degree of youthful idealism) to face the Directive known as MiFID 2 and report back on its likely impact on European trading. David has returned, a sadder and wiser European Trading Correspondent, and this is what he has to say.
- Accentuate the positive…19/Issue 19 Q4 2010
…and consolidate the compatible. Do we need a consolidated tape? Or would it be enough just to have markets in which a consolidated tape was possible? Bob Giffords draws out the intractable questions.
- What just happened?18/Issue 18 Q3 2010
There's high-frequency trading, and now there's high-frequency crashing. But identifying the causes of the 6th May 2010 'flash crash' has proved to be a relatively slow process. Bob Giffords goes in search of causes, outcomes, explanations and lessons to be learned.
- The show must go on!17/Issue 17 Q2 2010
It was fun, actually, Trade Tech this year. More volcanic eruptions than usual, and perhaps fewer people than Paris 2009 - although the official count made it "the largest gathering of equities professionals in the ten-year history of TradeTech". But a lot of connections were made, follow-up meetings arranged, and key issues addressed, both in the formal sessions and on the exhibition floor. Latency was the biggest issue discussed but not the only one: when we weren't talking about those last few micro-seconds, we were discussing: effective data delivery and usage; smart- and smarter-order routing; best execution; market surveillance; post-trade economics; clearing - and whether we had enough room in the magazine for all those launches. Automated Trader's Editor, William Essex, reviews the show that so nearly didn't happen.
- High stakes ahead16/Issue 16 Q1 2010
The recent furore over high frequency trading, so ably anatomised by David Dungay in "Flash Ban Wallop" in our Q4 2009 issue, has put the matter squarely under the spotlight. So what better time to ask a panel of the industry's leading experts to separate the fact from the fiction? We asked Bob Giffords, independent banking and technology analyst and chairman of February's InVantage HIFREQ TRADE conference in London, to lead the discussion.
