"With the work I have done with High Frequency Traders and supporting their trading strategies with Meridian Equity Partners, I have attended quite a few of Edgar's Golden Networkingevents for this part of the industry. Edgar is a consummate professional and great event organizer, who knows and understands his audience. I am looking forward to his unique perspective on this dynamic population of the industry!"
"This is a comprehensive and compelling summary of the trading industry in general as well as High Frequency Trading. The book contains a well thought out tour of the development of the markets, the characters and key players of the high frequency trading world, their strategies, the benefits they bring and the future possibilities. HF Traders have been tarnished unfairly and primarily out of ignorance. Edgar provides and calm and objective review of the nature of this important newer addition to the trading world. He also provides a detailed summary and explanation of the famous 'Flash Crash' with both the correct and incorrect conclusions. If you are interested in this field or knowing a critical component of all future markets - read this book."
