Sang Lee from the Aite Group reports that High Frequency Trading has had a significant impact on the overall market, providing greater liquidity, tighter spreads and overall improving the quality of the market. At the a macro level these are great advancements and mark a natural evolutionary step due to so many market changes in recent years (i.e. electronic trading venues, adoption of CEP platforms for algo trading, etc.) in Equities and beyond (i.e. FX and Futures & Options). Down in the trenches, the battles rage on day by day as a multitude of traders and an untold number of algo strategies provide the market liquidity by moving in and out of positions in milliseconds (or even less time).
