As mentioned in The Speed Traders, "Volatility and liquidity can have a very inverse relationship. The more you have of one, the less you have of the other. And right now we have a lot of volatility. But liquidity will return to the market and will give us some certainty as far as what we’re doing. If the market feels at equilibrium, you won’t be able to do these kinds of high frequency trades. Being able to model behavior on the fly, knowing where the market is going with some kind of certainty, that’s the most fascinating part of the future of high-frequency trading. You want to be able to identify those moments where the market is about to turn, where that possibility is there. And be the first one to really start hitting the bid.”
