HFT Trading is a type of algorithmic trading via electronic data transfer protocols at ultra fast speeds. Data transfer rates reach 10,000 messages per second and the time stamp is measured in nanoseconds.

Сomplex technological tools and computer algorithms are used for fast high-frequency trading. The profitability of such systems directly depends on the capabilities and quality of communication channels and equipment power. Among all applications, the first to be executed is the one that will be first in the queue. And the main task of HFT algorithms is how to quickly place your order in mono and process the received market data.

The basic terms in HFT trading are speed, secret technologies and algorithmic trading. Today there is a whole industry of firms and hedge funds, whose activities are directly related to HFT trading. As a rule, these firms do not disclose their trading algorithms and secrets of their skills and attract private investment in large volumes. HFT trading combines a variety of trading strategies, latency arbitrage, index arbitrage, currency arbitrage, volantily arbitrage, statistical arbitrage and merge arbitrage, as well as global macroeconomic, long / short capital, passive market creation and so on.

HFT traders rely on ultra-fast speed of computer software, access to high-speed data channels (using FIX API and ITCH technology ), important resources and connectivity with minimal latency.


HFT trading is one of the most profitable and risk-free areas of trade, but at the same time it requires special knowledge and skills in this area and here you can not do without the initial starting capital.

There are several strategies according to which high-frequency traders act.

• Market Making, Electronic Liquidity Provision - a trader providing liquidity and making a profit from the spread (the difference between the purchase and sale prices). Additionally, for the provision of liquidity, improving the quality and attractiveness of the trading platform, traders can receive payments from stock exchanges or ECN, or save on transactional payments due to discounts.

• Statistical arbitrage, in which the trader tries to identify correlations between different securities and take advantage of the imbalances between them. Arbitration can be made between exchanges of different countries, exchanges of one country, between various forms of a traded index (for example, arbitration between a security and a derivative instrument from it).

• Liquidity detection , in which high-frequency traders are trying to detect large orders or hidden orders, including from automated systems, constantly sending small orders to the market, and tracking the time they are completed.

• Latency arbitrage , in which the high-frequency trader gains an advantage due to earlier access to market information, for example, using a direct connection to the trading platform, hosting servers near exchanges.
