Initially Reported by Los Angeles Times, High-Frequency Trading Happy Hour, (http://www.HFTHappyHour.com), Evenings of Networking and Cocktails around the Globe
More than two years ago, Los Angeles Times uncovered the lid on High Frequency Trading Happy Hour business receptions organized by Golden Networking. They said in their note at http://articles.latimes.com/2010/may/16/business/la-fi-new-exchanges-20100516: "Traders toast their successes at bimonthly happy hours in New York bars. They'll converge next month at Johnny Utah's, a cavernous watering hole near Rockefeller Center that features a 300-pound mechanical bull." Not quite right though, as these receptions have now become monthly, attracting a hundred professionals every month in New York.
Golden Networking’s High Frequency Trading Happy Hour on May 8 will be a terrific opportunity to reflect on the industry prospects exactly two years after the Flash Crash. While critics pointed to the steep decline of the Dow Jones as a negative consequence of evolving speed trading, it was clearly established just a few months later by the SEC and CFTC that high-frequency trading didn’t cause this accident; even more so, the sequence of events proved the importance of the liquidity speed traders have been providing to retail and institutional investors.
High Frequency Trading Happy Hour will bring together a who’s who of the speed trading world for a productive evening of networking and cocktails. Traders, quants, managers, investors, allocators, service providers and consultants get together in five cities every month. Service providers have found these receptions tremendously valuable to participate at, as they get to enjoy terrific benefits:
• Unequaled opportunities to reach key decision makers in the high-frequency trading community
• Direct global exposure to hundreds of high-quality attendees
• Enhanced credibility and business opportunity with managers, quants, advisors, consultants, service providers and individual and institutional investors
• Expanded marketing reach by tapping into Golden Networking’s global database of 100,000 finance professionals
• Direct exposure on Golden Networking’s website and the driving of additional, qualified traffic to your website
