  • The Great HFT Debate

    Sponsored by TabbFORUM
    Though the value and fairness of high-frequency trading have been debated among capital markets professionals for years, and HFT occasionally has drawn fire from regulators since the global financial crisis, the controversy recently has been transformed into a very public trial of Wall Street in general, and the battle lines have been clearly drawn. Market participants, market structure experts, regulators and even private investors haven’t been shy about choosing sides. You’ll find the best arguments, opinions and news on both sides of the debate here, in TabbFORUM’s latest Spotlight Series, “The Great HFT Debate.”
  • Market Surveillance 2.0: Beyond the Crisis

    Sponsored by Software AG (Apama)
    Today, regulatory scrutiny of capital markets participants is more intense and the risk of rogue or erroneous trading is more acute than ever. Firms need to detect and respond in near real time to market abuse, manipulation and rogue algorithms – across asset classes, markets and jurisdictions. But this often is not enough. To manage regulatory and reputational risk in the post-crisis era, participants need to be able to implement new surveillance tools as any asset class or trading style draws new scrutiny. TabbFORUM’s “Market Surveillance 2.0: Beyond the Crisis” Spotlight, sponsored by Software AG (Apama), highlights the technologies and techniques that are powering efficient, customizable market surveillance platforms, allowing firms to stay ahead of evolving regulatory requirements.
