When it comes to trading on the market, the best and most effective way to ensure that you are going to be able to beat out your competition is to use the pairs trading software that is widely available. Some of my co-workers have not been utilizing it in order to analyze the difference in the rate that trades are made on command they have noticed that there is an effective loss when compared to trades made with the software. That enough is for me to recommend the software to my friends and co-workers, it’s just foolish not to.
We live in a time when making trades is going to be completely and utterly automated. Without a doubt there are more and more firms who are beginning to utilize what is called ‘black box’ trading which is done by software in order to automate it. Algorithms are the new stock brokers these days and if you’re not using one or a software able to employ them then your competition is always going to be one up on you. There’s no way to be able to beat out the speed of the software that is currently being deployed. There’s only so much that someone can do manually.
I tried to do it myself. There is just no way that I can beat out the kind of speed that the algorithms are currently operating on. Too, it helps to be able to have the hardware running this software as close as to the center of the markets as possible as that is where the servers in which the trades are being made are kept. Looking at NYC these days and you’ll find that many of the buildings near Wall Street have nearly been emptied out of people and instead are filled with server after server.
