HFT: opinión de la Chicago Fed

El Banco de la Reserva Federeal de Chicago (Chicago FED) en uno de sus usuales ensayos trata el tema de High Frequency Trading (HFT), Controlling Risk in a Lightning-Speed Trading Environment

A handful of high-frequency trading firms accounted for an estimated 70 percent of overall trading volume on U.S. equities markets in 2009. One firm with such a computerized system traded over 2 billion shares in a single day in October 2008, amounting to over 10 percent of U.S. equities trading volume for the day. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this technology-dependent trading environment, and how are its risks controlled?

El trabajo hace hincapié en las posibles perdidas ocasionadas por este tipo de trading:

The high-frequency trading environment has the potential to generate errors and losses at a speed and magnitude far greater than that in a floor or screen-based trading environment.

Para terminar, la bibliografia de este ensayo no tiene desperdicio, cita un paper realizado en el 2007 llamado Does Algorithmic Trading improve Liquidity? y una nota periodistica, tambien del 2007, Error in Singapore Forced Unwinding of 110,000 trades.
