High Frequency Trading Scrutinized, Automated Trading Strengthens

As pressures for high frequency trading regulation are rising globally, it is only a matter of time before the United States and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) must take a look at its' own policies.  Otherwise it risks losing investors in its own stock market who wish to trade other countries' markets in order to avoid high frequency traders.

High Frequency Traders Aren't Doing Well, but Automated Traders are!

In a recent announcement by Paul Rowady, of the Tabb Group, stated that the Fed's artificial inflation of the stock market due to Quantitative Easing #3 (QE3) was making it very difficult, if not impossible for high frequency traders to participate in trading the stock market.  Because their trading is based on the past and what has previously occurred, the current circumstances are highly unprecedented and are effecting market conditions differently than expected.  Because of this, it is rendering their algorithms useless under current conditions.

Avoid Get Rich Quick in Algorithmic Trading

One sound piece of advice that is referenced by critics of algorithmic trading is that you should not believe any of the hype that some products advertise, which claim guaranteed huge returns in a short amount of time.  It is ridiculous to think that you can make the same sort of money described at the end of my previous blog regarding my example of casinos and human error.  If used correctly, the system should be a make money slowly over time. 

Even high frequency traders don't plan to make that percent of return.  Instead they trade with the mass bulk of millions of shares, however buying this many shares and trading it on a single cent move is a ten thousand dollar gain.  And this is being done tens of thousands of times a day.  This unfortunately is unrealistic for almost every normal trader out there to execute.
