    Solid Primer for Traders and Investors

    Irene's new book delivers exactly what it sets out to achieve. It opens the arena of High-Frequency Trading to traders and investors looking to understand why trading is becoming automated and how traders operate in this environment. This books makes academic research useful by explaining how to create trading strategies.

    This is the only book that shows a trader how to build a trading operation from trading strategies to risk management. This is also the only material that defines what is meant by High Frequency Trading based on an actual survey of Hedge Fund managers from FinAlternatives (rather than rely solely on academics).

    The overview statistical and econometric techniques is immensely helpful to walk though the details of how to measure performance in a High Frequency environment. The implication of not holding positions overnight on the Sharpe ratio and on risk management is important for traders to understand.

    The chapters that explain High-Frequency models is excellent. This gives me insight into the research that drives many of the common trading strategies. The media coverage of High-Frequency Trading focuses on flash orders and co-location whereas, this book outlines a broad survey of approaches to High-Frequency Trading. After reading this book, I understand different ways that I can hunt for alpha.

    For individual investors that do not have the benefit on the risk management infrastructure of an investment bank, this book provides an invaluable guide to building a trading operation. A lot of the effort to develop High-Frequency Trading involves expertise in coding and Irene goes a long way to explain it. Without this book an investor would have no idea of the risks that are unique to High-Frequency Trading and the technique that are used to manage these risks.

    I recommend this book to you.

    Grossly Mistitled

    Purports to be a guide to high frequency and algorithmic trading. Instead a review and compendium of studies about markets and characteristics of high frequency (tick) data. The studies are interesting, the review of how the markets actually work fascinating. Contrary to the PR docs, if you actually READ THE BOOK, you will find no high frequency trading algorithms discussed.
