Graduate Lecture Series Week 3: Replacing the human trader

27 Oct 17

Time: 12.00 noon

Abstract:  XTX Markets trades an average of $80B daily in thousands of financial instruments  on an electronic basis with  little human interaction. This adds liquidity to the global financial markets and is made possible by taking a highly systematic, purely data-driven, approach to trading.  In this talk, we will describe how trading can be automated, the sort of problems that it poses, and how a small team of mathematicians, statisticians and computer scientists tackles them.

Graduate Talk  by XTX Markets followed by pizza lunch.  For catering purposes, please book your place here.
