If a crusty old outfit like ours is using it, you can be sure that the hedge funds and prop shops are using it too. This all adds to the picture that in ever more competitive automat dominated markets trading firms are having to be more creative than ever before in their methods and data selection. So, for we added a significant number of additional questions and included a section dedicated to regulation and market structure taking the final total to eighty six questions.
Automated Trader 2011 Algorithmic Trading Survey
Instead of the primary focus being the eradication of execution latency, the survey data reveals that an increasing number of firms have been forced to look much further afield to find and keep their edge.

We hope you enjoy the report. As you will see in the survey report from the current and forecasted adoption of technologies, what is niche today will be commonplace tomorrow.
That told us that the survey could have been longer. As a result of the broader appeal and extra promotion, by the end of the first week we had had over one hundred completed results, and by the end of the second week the total of just over two hundred responses had surpassed the participation. Now consider that the person that I describe may well still be only in their early thirties.
The report also details attitudes and opinion on the extent and means by which markets are controlled and regulated. Over the course of those events, what we discovered from the many conversations we had with proprietary traders, brokers, fund managers, technologists, academics and regulators was widespread agreement with the key points to emerge from the survey data, with many telling us that the results were very much in line with their own experience.
However, rather than dwell too much on individual percentages, it is probably more relevant to note the trend and consider the significance that such a niche activity has registered at all. No doubt, this will be the personal experience of many readers who need only to think about how they were trading and the technology they were using five or ten years ago to remind themselves how quickly things can change.

The report is approximately 30, words in length and details the current and future trends for algorithmic trading globally. They will have shared many a brave faced farewell drink tinged with melancholy as increasing numbers of their colleagues found they were unable to adapt to the new market dynamics; witnessed, perhaps with some satisfaction, the destruction of large scale liquidity monopolies, and then wrestled with the ensuing complexities of price discovery and grc at potentially dozens of separate venues.
The pace of change has been nothing short pooe incredible. The survey data was picked up by a number of central banks, regulators and policy makers and statistics from the survey were included in a number of reports and white papers and were used by speakers and moderators at a number of conferences in the months that followed publication.
Whilst many of these trends were apparent in the data, what is most significant is the scale and speed at which these trends are developing. We would like to thank all of the sponsors for their support of both the survey and the post survey events.
What became apparent almost immediately was that not only was the participation level far greater than we had expected or hoped for, but again most people were completing the entire survey. Over a period of just twelve months, aided by the scalability offered by increasingly faster data processing, lower latency connectivity and improved infrastructure, trading firms had ratcheted up their algorithmic activity and were deploying pow across a progressively diverse array of instruments and asset classes in ever more geographical regions.
As we began the process of analysing ppoe data, we immediately started to see a fascinating picture emerging.
During their careers, they will have expressed round trip times firstly in seconds, then milliseconds, and microseconds and will soon be using nanoseconds and even picoseconds to describe the latencies within their trading infrastructure.
The report includes detailed analysis of topics such as: By the time we closed the survey in September, it had been completed by over five hundred people, and most significantly, we had succeeded in attracting a far broader cross section ope the trading community. Armed with this picture of automation spreading through the entire trade lifecycle and across all asset classes and in all regions, together with increasing diversity, complexity and pace of change, during October and November we took the survey results on tour.
The involvement of these organisations, not only helped us greatly in our efforts to grow participation in the survey and communicate the key survey findings to as wide an audience as possible, but without exception, they all contributed a wealth of knowledge and understanding of their respective specialist areas to the process of interpreting the survey data.
To add further perspective to this point, many hec read this report will, over the course of their careers, have witnessed a number of fundamental shifts in the way markets are traded.
Running the Algorithmic Trading Survey was nothing short of an incredible experience for the Automated Trader team. With more and more venues and asset classes becoming algorithmically tradable; automation now shouldering its way ope literally every part of the trade life-cycle, and machines becoming smarter and increasingly self-aware, the next ten years look like being just as exciting as the last.
Forwe also took the decision to run the survey for longer, with the extra time allowing us to promote the bigger set of questions to different sectors of the trading community. Many firms that were previously using algorithms only to manage execution are now also reporting the use of a myriad of other models using highly diverse data and metadata right the way through the entire trade life-cycle.

All of the key trends towards automation and the adoption of algorithmic trading that we had identified in were still present, but the trends had clearly amplified quite significantly. Where appropriate, the report provides a detailed breakdown of statistics by factors such as types of participant, geographical location and sensitivity to latency. Execution Metadata Comparisons – Systematic vs. Finally, despite our efforts to ge a wide cross-section of the trading community, there is still the self-selection bias resulting from our audience tending to operate at the more technical and quantitative end of the trading spectrum.
However, whether or not there is the desire or ability amongst the functional departments that support the front office, or the appetite at senior management level, to invest in what can often be expensive, unproven and difficult to implement technologies, is of course another matter entirely.
With the foundation of the survey in place, we were reasonably confident of collecting good quality data again.
