    Excellent introduction to high frequency trading

    This book describes, in fair detail, high frequency trading. It won't make you a high frequency trader, but it will give you an appreciation for how equity trading has changed. Individual traders cannot compete with the firms that employ HFT. Individuals are best served by using a "buy and hold" strategy. Read Prof. Jeremy Siegel's book, "Stocks for the long run". I recommend both books.
