Algorithmic trading workshop took place on 27th of July 2013 as a part of the second conference held by Puls Biznesu and Warsaw Stock Exchange.
Michał Różański, representing Empirica, held workshop on the practical aspects of selecting tools for algo trading by financial institutions. He stressed and covered in detail, especially one aspect of algorithmic trading which is from our practical experience constantly undervalued – namely proper testing of algorithms.
Very interesting was also a lecture of Emil Lewandowski who showed an algorithm which was able to detect a flash crash an hour before it actually happend. Algorithm was implemented, backtested, executed and presented to all the participants our Algorithmic Trading Platform. It was indeed very interesting example of application of algorithmic trading!
Among other guest were representatives from IBM, Sungard, List and M10.
