Algorithmic Software Trading Robots and Audit Trails

In this session our speakers from the University of Miami will demo the use of software trading robots to create sophisticated audit trails:

In the age of high frequency trading (HFT) through the use of automated algorithmic software trading robots, consolidated audit trails can be the watch dog, monitoring for triggers that may cause massive market fluctuations. Conversely, they can also be spying on other traders in the market place while recording, webcasting, and then recasting the data in order to influence the marketplace.

In their demonstration, Avi and Sara Rushinek will use state of the art hardware and software to show how consolidated audit trails can be used for monitoring purposes - in HFT, general security, spying and content misappropriation­ through the use of several commonly available platforms and how, with an internet connection, all the data (text, audio, video) is continuously cloud sync’d, archived, and readily available at the top of search engine search results.
