Jadranka Carluccio-Grbic is the Gallery's Featured Artist

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Jadranka Carluccio-Grbic is the gallery's recent featured artist.

Jupiter, Florida, USA - July 16, 2012 -- Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Jadranka Carluccio-Grbic is the gallery's recent featured artist. Jadranka brings a unique and interesting background, training and history to her creative endeavors as a Croatian artist, Medical Doctor by profession and as an assiduous world traveler.

Since childhood, Jadranka experienced a vast cultural heritage which helped enrich and develop artistic soul. After using various means of traditional artistic expression, she discovered the digital medium. Jadranka explains the medium in the following manner, “digital painting is comparable to oil on canvas or pencil on paper, because the artist does not use a computer to generate images automatically, but rather, that the painting is created on the blank page with no references whatsoever. Drawing, perspective and colors are all generated and created by the artist. The only real difference between digital and the traditional way of painting is in the tool itself. A brush, pencil, canvas or papers are now exchanged with a computer mouse, a digital pen, on a digital means. The digital medium also allows the artist to work with multiple layers, as this allows the artist to correct any error which is much easier than if it was created on a canvas.”

Jadranka's mixed media paintings are original size, with each painting (biggest) printed on canvas with museum quality giclee technique, hand painted and signed by her, using translucent materic acrylic paint. Jadranka's vivid and incredible art can be viewed worldwide in many group and solo exhibitions in both galleries and museums, as well as in public and private collections. Her work can also be viewed instantly at the following websites: http://www.jcgart.com and http://www.jcg-fineartdigitalpainting.com.

Show Time for High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 at World’s Top Financial Centers, New York, Chicago and London

Building off of the momentum of past conferences, Golden Networking brings back High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, now in New York, Chicago and London (www.HFTLeadersForum.com).

New York City, NY, USA (July 16, 2012) -- Building off of the momentum of the leading conferences of 2011 on the subject of algorithmic, quantitative and high-frequency trading, Golden Networking brings once again a renovated edition of High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, this time in three of the world’s most important financial centers: New York, Chicago and London.

High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012, "How Traders, Brokers, Exchanges and Dark Pools Navigate the Most Challenging Regulatory Landscape", will provide attendees in New York, Chicago and London with the most up-to-date review of where this ever-changing industry stands and how new technology and regulatory developments will impact it. Recognized experts, regulators, and strategists, will return to High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 to provide the information practitioners are looking for in an open and unbiased environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.

With insightful keynote speeches and highly regarded panels, everybody involved in high-frequency trading will gain inside knowledge about the latest technologies that can drastically optimize HFT infrastructures and take a first look at upcoming regulations that could radically change the HFT firms’ business model. Topics that will be discussed at High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 include the movement toward emerging markets, every time more attuned to the use of bots, the regulatory environment, how new technologies are changing the game, including FPGA applications, and a look at the upcoming regulatory changes that will definitely impact how speed traders capture alpha, organized in five different panels:

Emerging Markets: How will Emerging Markets from Brazil to China Affect the Scope of High-frequency Trading? With emerging markets on the rise, high frequency trading and algorithmic trading are shifting to geographies in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Which markets hold the most promise? Which asset classes can be traded in high-frequency in those markets? Are there restrictions to frequency and speed in place in any of those promising lands? What is the outlook for high-frequency trading among regulators in those markets?

Robotic Markets: As High-frequency Trading Embraces Robotic Markets Worldwide, how Participants will be Able to Find new Opportunities to Sustain Alpha Creation? Algorithms are becoming more prevalent, faster, smarter, more self-adaptive and geographically distributed and embracing cross asset classes trading and geographies. How will robotic market impact trading, and high-frequency trading in particular? What will be the benefits quants can expect from this evolution? Will there be any disadvantages?

Regulatory Impact: With High-frequency Trading in the Spotlight, how new Regulations will Change the Industry? With high-frequency trading the subject of great controversy and debate, many regulations will be bound to change. How will regulations impact the way traders are capturing alpha? Would there be restrictions that can possibly harm algorithmic trading? How the economic and political landscape might impact the pace and severity of these changes?

Hot FPGA: As Financial Firms Embrace More Applications, would FPGA Live up to the Current Lofty Expectations? Trading outfits that are latency sensitive are interested in FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) for a number of reasons including the order-of-magnitude speed improvement and more deterministic latency over software running on general purpose CPUs. What are other unique advantages this technology brings to high-frequency trading? What sets FPGAs apart from other technologies? How fast implementation costs are changing?

The Future of HTF: How High-frequency Trading will Evolve in Ever-changing Technology and Regulatory Environments? There has been a dramatic shift in how instruments are traded in the market. With high frequency trading able to detect price discrepancies in microseconds, aided by technology, regulators have grown increasingly concerned about its impact in market structure and fairness. What is the outlook for the markets when all participants engage in the arms race of super smart algorithms? Where will institutional and retail investors find opportunities? Conversely, could we imagine a world without high-frequency trading?

High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2012 is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs and investors.
