Talking Intelligent Trading with Andrew Delaney: No Sleep Till Bedtime!

Earlier this week, I blogged on our Reference Data Review channel complaining about the lack of easement into 2014. And so has the rush of last week extended into this as we corral the marketplace for the latest ideas and opinions for our upcoming conferences, which kick off in London on March 4 with our Intelligent Trading Summit, followed briskly on May 14 in New York by a US version looking at similar themes.

For those who aren’t yet familiar with it, the Intelligent Trading Summit is the newly rebranded Low Latency Summit, expanded to include the type of topics I outlined in my earlier blog introducing the Intelligent Trading Technology online community.

By way of recap, we’ve decided that low latency is now mainstream, and the new differentiator will be ‘intelligence’. Quite how that intelligence will manifest itself remains to be seen. But we expect it to involve packing new and varied data sets – including social media and enterprise risk information – into the pre-trade analytical function, and all done at speed. This is what Intelligent Trading Technology and the Intelligent Trading Summit will be all about: Low Latency, Big Data, Analytics.

So as well as conducting our usual industry investigations, we are also in the throes of putting together the agenda for this spring’s Intelligent Trading Summits, and as many of you know, I am reaching out to my industry contacts to get their assessment of what is driving our industry in 2014 and how the respective stakeholders are responding.

Discussions thus far with our marketplace’s movers and shakers indicate a compelling topic list. Here’s a snapshot of some of the topics we’re looking at for panel sessions, workshops and keynotes:

  • Implementing an Intelligent Trading Architecture
  • Implementing Trade-Time Risk and Compliance for Trading
  • Adaptive Technologies for Pre-Trade Analytics
  • Big Data and HPC Tools for Algo Development
  • Innovating with Technology to Reduce Trading Costs
  • Leveraging Operational Analytics in Trading Operations
  • Adopting Cloud Services for Quant Research and Algo Testing
  • Emerging Technologies for Financial Analytics & Statistics
  • Storage Advances for Latency Reduction and Data Management

As a reader of Intelligent Trading Technology, I hope some if not all of these topics gel with what you are seeing in today’s marketplace. If you have further suggestions, or would like to find out more about getting involved either as a speaker or sponsor (or both), get in touch soonest. We’ll be reaching out over the coming weeks, and updating everyone as things progress.

No Sleep Till Bedtime!, as the Beastie Boys didn’t say.
