Session on "Impact of Recent Market Events on Algorithmic Trading"
Recent global events such as Brexit and the subsequent volatility in the currency markets have spooked a lot of investors. Increase in Risk aversion following such an event is a natural outcome, as market participants exercise caution while trading.
However, even during such tumultuous times, automated traders are having a field day. According to media reports, hedge funds using algorithmic trading are regularly outperforming manual traders, and especially during such stressful market conditions.
