It is not too late to register for Wednesday’s After The Bell Forum - Smart Strategies, Latest Technology, Big Data: Applications for Competitive Advantage Across Asset Classes which is being held at the Westin Times Square beginning at 5:30 pm.
I admit that I have a vested interest in making sure that the panel sessions have a good turn out. I will be moderating the first panel on technology and automation for successful trading. With me will be Pico Quantitative Trading CTO Sonny Baillargeon, MayStreet co-founder Patrick Flannery and Direct Edge’s head of sales Bryan Christian, all who will be sharing their views on how fast is fast enough, the maturity of various types of product offerings (Yes FPGAs, we’re looking at you.) and what role outsourcing can play.
After our 45-minute conversation, please stay for the second panel on connectivity, co-lo, the challenge of Big Data and the discussion on news-based trading moderated by Stacey Mankoff. Participating on the second panel will be Rich Brown, head of Elektron Analytics at Thomson Reuters; Eldar Nigmatullin, former senior quantitative trader at AllianceBernstein; Roji Oommen, senior director, business development, financial services at Savvis and Andres Usandivaras, CEO & CIO of Chronos Trading Group.
I look forward to catching up with you at the networking session held after the last panel.
