High Frequency Trading – The Enemy?

There’s a lot of hype online about high frequency trading. Those who have been in trading for a long time know there’s always been a trading “boogeyman” that many people hold responsible for their losses. That changes through the years but right now it’s “high frequency trading” that people are pointing the finger at.

But are they responsible for traders’ losses or are they making our job easier?

Many vendors claim to have a way for you to “beat the algos” but nobody takes time to explain who the high frequency traders are, what techniques they employ and why you would even need to beat them.

In the video below, we take a look at the type of trading techniques employed by HFTs. Who they are, what they are doing and why they are doing it.  We take a look at how that impacts other traders and whether the overall impact is positive or negative.

Jigsaw Trading
After suffering a 30% drawdown at the hands of “independent financial advisors”, Peter started trading in the early 2000’s, figuring there was no point in paying people to lose money for him. By 2005, Peter was day trading NASDAQ stocks and later discovered the value order flow. He struggled with the way order flow data was presented so designed tools that organized Order Flow information more rationally and Jigsaw Trading was born. Those tools are now the #1 ranked software on Investimonials.com.
Today Peter spends his time trading and helping other traders through the Jigsaw community, articles and free one on one sessions.
