HFT is reaching its limits
We new this was going to come over the years. This is no different than a product marketing cycle.
Overall, HFT firms’ revenues in the US have slumped from about 7.2 billion USD in 2009 to 1.3 billion USD in 2014 (see Figure 02). This drop may have been partly due to fierce competition which has pushed smaller contenders out of the market and led to trading opportunities disappearing more quickly…
the glory days of HFT seem to be over and HFT will probably offer reduced opportunities in developed markets in the future.
