Electronic Trading and Algorithmic Execution

This course provides a detailed investigation of the latest developments in electronic trading and algorithmic execution. We look at Foreign Exchange, Equities and Fixed Income electronic trading and the impact this is having on market developments today.

The first day of the programme begins by understanding the nature of different electronic market places and examines different types of orders. In the afternoon we look into methods for algorithmic execution. Day two focuses on electronic market-making and the market microstructure, examining both the market risks and regulatory challenges.

Day three comprises of a more advanced, in-depth coverage of execution algorithms alongside trading strategies and signals. It examines in detail the evolving structure of the markets as driven by regulation and analyzes ways to achieve and demonstrate best execution.

Practical workshops allow delegates to explore the implementation of execution algorithms as well as methods to benchmark performance and calculate transaction cost metrics.
