FAQ on Aalgorithmic trading. The history of algorithmic trading.

The start and emergence of algorithmic trading can be considered the 98th year of the last century, when the us securities Commission (abbreviated SEC), decided on the possibility of using electronic trading platforms, and as a result, the use of trading robots for algorithmic trading.
All this gave rise to a leap in technology in the field of trade.
There are several periods that are particularly important:
- the beginning of the 2000s, this period of technology allowed you to make automatic transactions in a few seconds, despite the low speed it was a breakthrough, according to the SEC calculation, robots account for less than 8% of transactions.
- the end of the 2000s was characterized by an increase in the speed of transactions up to milliseconds, during this period the number of transactions made by trading robots exceeded 55-60%.
- late period since 2010, the number of use of trading robots has decreased, and amounted to about 45-50%. Experts attribute the decline in usage to an increased number of errors and failures of trading robots.
Today, algorithmic trading (HFT trading) is one of the most important components of exchange trading. Not only private traders, but also large companies-invest. banks and funds use trading robots in their work.
