  • Machines Trading Stocks on News

    by Adam Honore, Jacob Sisk, Armando Gonzalez and John Kittrell

    Trading on news is not new. Terminals have had news readers attached from the time trading went electronic. What is new is who, or what, is trading on news. Born from a hybrid of technological capability, electronification of the markets, algorithmic trading, and a little influence from the intelligence community, black box trading systems are now applying semantic analysis to trade on news items without a single human ever reading the story. While only 2% of trading firms were doing this two years ago, roughly one-third are exploring it today. This session looks at the data, drivers, and technology behind trading on unstructured content.
