High Frequency Trading

Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define High Frequency Trading.

A modern method of trading that makes use of powerful computers and rapid programs to transact a large number of trading orders in a fraction of a second.  Generally, traders with the fastest processing speeds are the most profitable.  HFTs utilize complex algorithms to analyze multiple markets simultaneously and execute buying and selling orders based on the conditions of those markets.
