Webinar: How Technology Impacts Success in the Volatility Game

From Twitter trends to trade wars, in today’s global economy everything has a knock-on effect. In a volatile market like 2019, where are the opportunities for firms?

Market volatility influences sell-side, broker dealers, asset managers and proprietary trading firms. High market volatility tends to make for more interesting markets and can create some exciting yet choppy trading conditions. But whether volatility is high or low, for asset managers, it’s about being able to trade a wide variety of strategies, in the conditions they are presented with.

  • How can buy-side firms control the cost of execution during periods of volatility and what role do technologies, such as transaction-cost analysis, have in managing the cost of execution?
  • How are buy-side firms taking advantage of new technologies to achieve best execution throughout periods of volatility?
  • How has the proliferation and fragmentation of new trading venues impacted how buy- and sell-side firms manage volatility and what technologies can mitigate these pressures?
  • How are the sell-side leveraging smart order routers to find best price and volume from multiple venues?
