In a new Pinpoint report, TABB Group provides an industry update on low touch trading trends in the US equity markets. TABB Group spoke with 66 head traders of US institutional equity management firms and 57 head traders of US hedge fund companies. A large portion of the discussions covered the opinions of head traders with regard to the continued growth of low-touch trading, including trends in order allocation across high- and low-touch trading venues and selection criteria in algorithmic trading. Algorithms continue to be the stand-out winner amongst trading strategies, and they are continuing to grow in importance and volume as traders turn to low-touch execution methodologies. Competition for market share amongst the top algorithm providers is intense, and buy-side firms have more choices than ever.
