9781118879191: Dark Pools and High Frequency Trading For Dummies

A plain English guide to high frequency trading and off-exchange trading practices

In Dark Pools & High Frequency Trading For Dummies, senior private banker Jukka Vaananen has created an indispensable and friendly guide to what really goes on inside dark pools, what rewards you can reap as an investor and how wider stock markets and pricing may be affected by dark pools. Written with the classic For Dummies style that has become a hallmark of the brand, Vaananen makes this complex material easy to understand with an insider's look into the topic.

The book takes a detailed look at the pros and the cons of trading in dark pools, and how this type of trading differs from more traditional routes. It also examines how dark pools are currently regulated, and how the regulatory landscape may be changing.

  • Learn what types of dark pools exist, and how a typical transaction works
  • Discover the rules and regulations for dark pools, and some of the downsides to trading
  • Explore how dark pools can benefit investors and banks, and who can trade in them
  • Recognize the ins and outs of automated and high frequency trading

Because dark pools allow companies to trade stocks anonymously and away from the public exchange, they are not subject to the peaks and troughs of the stock market, and have only recently begun to take off in a big way. Written with investors and finance students in mind, Dark Pools & High Frequency Trading For Dummies is the ultimate reference guide for anyone looking to understand dark pools and dark liquidity, including the different order types and key HFT strategies.
