Overview

Accounting for over 60 percent of equity trading volume and generating huge profits for a number of firms, high-frequency trading is one of the most talked about topics in the world of finance. Given the success of this approach, many institutions and individuals are looking for ways to make high-frequency trading work for them.

In High-Frequency Trading Models, Dr. Gewei Ye describes the technology, architecture, and algorithms (algos) underlying current high-frequency trading models, which exploit order flow imbalances and temporary pricing inefficiencies. Along the way, he explains how to develop a high-frequency trading system and introduces you to his own system for building high-frequency strategies based on behavioral algos.

Divided into four comprehensive parts, this timely guide:

  • Describes the fundamental revenue models of high-frequency trading

  • Introduces a series of theoretical models—behavioral, financial, and quantitative—for building unique investment strategies for high-frequency trading

  • Develops a unique set of computer algos, called Sentiment Asset Pricing Engine (SAPE), to automate the process of building behavioral strategies for high-frequency trading and portfolio management

  • Discusses the potential of new revenue models in derivatives with high-frequency trading systems and the creation of computer algos for high-frequency trading

To help solidify your understanding of the information found here, the author's Web site, Yeswici.com, contains ancillary materials of the models and computer algos mentioned throughout this book. Yeswici.com is also a quantitative modeling and computing platform for innovative investment research, which transfers this research into Internet and mobile applications.
