The Gateway to Algorithmic and Automated Trading

Automated Trader Magazine Issue 10 Q3 2008

We were out in force this Summer, with teams covering IDX in London, SIFMA in New York and the first TradeTech Middle East in Dubai. You’ll find a seasonal celebration, and no doubt some familiar faces, in our coverage beginning here . Our report on one of the sessions at IDX, a presentation by David Nahmanovici, manager for commodity investment solutions at Barclays Capital, forms part of our extended Cover Story on commodities this month ( find that report here ). Commodities, even the ones you wouldn’t eat for breakfast, have been a flavour of the year so far, and we are also delighted to welcome Dr Robert Brady, CTO of Brady PLC, to our pages. Dr Brady’s investigation into the current use and likely future evolution of automated trading in commodities markets begins here .

You’ll find Joe Wald, Managing Director and Co-Founder of EdgeTrade, a Knight Capital Group Subsidiary, contemplating what the future holds for buy-side traders in Europe over here , while over here , Dr Paul Lynch, Managing Partner of PE Lynch LLP provides some timely advice for those of us wondering whether we’ve got what it takes and how we’d build it if we hadn’t. If open-source software is part of the answer to that one, consult Graham Miller, CEO of Marketcetera, here . There’s a fascinating interview with Mary McCave , senior equity dealer at Legal & General Investment Management, and we have a particularly distinguished panel for our Tech Forum this month. So how exactly do you differentiate your electronic execution services?

And if there’s strength in numbers, well, we’ve got them too. Our Founder and CEO, Andy Webb, has spent much of the last month down in the lab with the door locked, working on the ongoing upgrade to Automated Trader’s proprietary Alphability tradability metrics. You’ll find the first fruits of his labours by clicking here .

It’s a busy issue. Enjoy it.
