From the Archives: High Frequency Trading Debate: Mano a Mano
Posted by Larry Doyle on May 7, 2010 2:44 PM |
In light of the structural problems displayed in the market yesterday, I believe it is timely to repost a commentary from last July:
In the spirit of continuing the dialogue on high frequency program trading, please view this ‘mano a mano’ debate on CNBC.
In one corner is Joe Saluzzi of Themis Trading. In the other is Irene Aldrige, Managing Partner of Able Alpha Trading.
Mr. Saluzzi initially exposed this activity to the public in late June. Irene views this trading activity as a natural evolution of modern technology.
Please let me know how you score “the fight.”
Additionally, for those interested in further pursuing information on structural issues in the marketplace related to high frequency trading, here is a link to my Review of Sense on Cents Interview with Joe Saluzzi on High Frequency Trading from last August.
