Analytics and Automated Trading Strategies: Measuring Success in the Global Futures Markets

Automated trading, market impact models and data analytics can be a potent force when combined with common sense, trading desk experience, good communication and sound knowledge of exchange rules. There is still a wide disparity of knowledge and use across various client segments. This panel will discuss how the intelligent use of data and analytics is altering algorithm usage and design, changing vendor and broker selection and influencing overall client-vendor-broker-exchange relationships in the process.

  • Pre-trade analysis in futures? Effective strategy and cost analysis metrics to improve algorithm selection, aggressiveness and time horizon of the trade
  • At-trade or real-time analysis: Monitoring the auto-pilot, custom and hybrid algorithms and on-the-fly amendments
  • Post-trade analytics: What is a good fill? Effective outlier management and utilization of post-trade metrics to improve execution performance
  • Data is king: Historical vs. real-time data challenges
  • Distribution: EMS/OMS integration, broker provided vs. in-house, cross product challenges

Risk Management in the High Freak, Flash Crash, Credit Crisis World

  • Which risks are we managing?
  • Pre versus post-trade risk management:
    Is one more appropriate than the other for certain scenarios or types of trading activity?
  • Availability and responsibility of risk technology
    Who applies the risk?
    Where does the risk management responsibility ultimately lie?
  • Risk management for high frequency traders
    Without getting too much into the debate of "liquidity maker" versus "liquidity taker" what role does HFT play in derivatives markets?
    How do you risk HFT when the primary objective is low or NO latency?
    Theoretically risk checks should be the same for HFT as they are for point and click traders. How do you ensure a level playing field from a risk management standpoint?
