High frequency trading has swept Wall Street in the past year, creating stunning profits for top tier banks and specialized trading firms. Given the success, many hedge funds and other types of trading firms are implementing or expanding high frequency strategies. As competition increases, existing strategies will become less profitable and new high-frequency strategies will be developed. In High Frequency Trading Models + Website, Dr. Gewei Ye describes the technology, architecture, and algorithms underlying current high frequency trading models, such as rebate trading, arbitrage, flash trading, and other types of trading, which exploit order flow imbalances and temporary pricing inefficiencies.
