High-frequency trading in equities is a method to implement certain types of strategy. It is a means, not an end. Although high-frequency trading strategies are complicated, they typically boil down to leveraging ultra-low latency trading technology to detect execution patterns and momentary intra-day pricing anomalies. High-frequency trading is highly dependent on these strategies actually working. If these opportunities disappeared, so would high-frequency trading. As a means, high-frequency trading harnesses inherent factors in the U.S. and European equities market structure while building on successive market innovations (e.g. high performance connectivity, low latency market data and co-location)
A higher penetration of high-frequency trading will be multi-faceted and driven by an increase in the number of proprietary trading firms, an expansion of quantitative hedge fund strategies, and increasingly technology-driven automated market making. In addition, the convergence of fundamental and quantitative strategies by investment firms will mean the coupling of execution and investment strategies, leading to greater high-frequency trading adoption among even more traditionally conservative organizations.
