Main Day 1: Tuesday 25th April 2017

3:00 PM OXFORD STYLE DEBATE: Latency optimisation is no longer needed in an age of smart trading - for and against

  • For- Improved sourcing of liquidity in both lit and dark pools has massively improved and is much more accessible
  • For- The risk of being gamed is still a major concern and the lack of oversight on HFT practices still poses a risk
  • Against- Being faster still provides you with the better fill price
  • Against- Improved latency really provides opportunities for improved execution, regarding reduced arbitrage opportunities and better SOR?
