High-Frequency Trading (HFT) is a type of algorithmic trading that involves transacting a large number of orders in fractions of a second. HFT leverages high-frequency financial data and sophisticated electronic trading tools to analyze markets and execute a large number of orders within short timeframes.
It is estimated that HFT algorithms are responsible for a considerable amount of the trading volume in the global markets. Due to the complexity of these algorithms, typically only large financial institutions have access to this trading method.
