Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Algorithm trading” Algorithm trading is a system of trading which facilitates transaction decision making in the financial markets using advanced mathematical tools. A trading system that utilizes very advanced mathematical models for making transaction decisions in the financial markets. The strict rules built into the model attempt to determine the optimal time for an order to be placed that will cause the least amount of impact on a stock's price. Large blocks of shares are usually purchased by dividing the large share block into smaller lots and allowing the complex algorithms to decide when the smaller blocks are to be purchased. In this type of a system, the need for a hu...

Speaker Bio: Dr. Sean Gourley is the founder and CTO of Quid. He is a Physicist by training and has studied the mathematical patterns of war and terrorism. He is building tools to augment human intelligence. Description of Talk: The speed of human strategic thinking is fundamentally limited by the biological hardware that makes up the brain. As humans we simply cannot operate on the millisecond time scale -- but algorithms can, and it is these algorithms that are now dominating the financial landscape. In this talk Sean Gourley examines this high frequency algorithmic ecosystem. An ecosystem, Gourley argues, that has evolved to the point where we as humans are no longer fully in control.

Yan Ohayon demystifies and shares his experience with algorithmic trading and its impact on markets, our lives, and everything in between. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

A thriller about a genius algorithm builder who dared to stand up against Wall Street. Haim Bodek, aka The Algo Arms Dealer. After Quants: the Alchemists of Wall Street and Money & Speed: Inside the Black Box. This is the final episode of a trilogy in search of the winners and losers of the tech revolution on Wall Street. Trading on the financial market is not longer dominated by humans, but by super fast computers and algorithms. The result of this digital revolution on Wall Street is a complex and fragmented financial system that is hard to understand and overseen. A system that we are all connected to. The only people who understand the system a bit, are the people who built it. Haim Bodek started his own high frequency trading in 2007 and built a from his point of view perfect and fas...
