Achieving Low Latency and High Throughput at High-Frequency Trading at HFT Leaders Forum 2013 London

Golden Networking brings the World's Most Influential High-Frequency Trading Conference Series, High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges," London, March 21 (

New York City, NY, USA (March 12, 2013) -- As high-frequency trading (HFT) moves towards multi-asset classes running multi-legged strategies demanding even faster execution, ultra-low latency performance becomes the focus. How will architectures evolve to meet the latency challenge? How helpful overclocking CPUs and leveraging FPGA coprocessors can result? How will wireless, cloud and big data technologies play in the speed race? How technology can enable modern applications to minimize latency while managing for high throughput? The answers will be debated at High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 London (, "Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges", this March 21 in London.

High-frequency trading strategies are highly dependent on ultra-low latency. To realize any real benefit from implementing these strategies, a firm must have a real-time, colocated, high-frequency trading platform where data is collected, and orders are created, routed and executed in sub-millisecond times. For HFT strategies speed of execution is key.

DMA or DSA (algo) are means of executing trading flow on a selected venue by almost bypassing the brokers discretionary methods. For the lack of interaction with the broker this is sometimes referred to as no-touch. DMA flow passes directly through the DMA market gateway and onto the venue while passing though strict risk checking and position keeping algorithms. It is at this point the brokers may monitor the behavior of their DMA clients. For the purposes of high-frequency trading, the DMA must not delay orders by more than a millisecond with a few technology firms able to achieve round trip times in the microseconds. With the ability to co-locate the HFT traders black boxes with the DMA next to a venue's matching engine, ultra-low latency can be achieved.

"Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges," is the theme of High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, forum that will provide attendees in London with the most up-to-date review of where this ever-changing industry stands through an insightful keynote speeches and thought-provoking panels with leaders in the field.
