Hello everyone,
I am an undergraduate student and I recently started doing research on quantitative finance. My question is whether trading algorithms are applied in equities and also if non Ultra High Frequency Trading is alive. Does HFT require massive programming knowledge or the model can be applied through MatLab or R?

Absolutely!

Very much so and rising! In fact, HFT has seen a decline in recent years and low-frequency Quant trading has picked up widely.

Does HFT require massive programming knowledge or the model can be applied through MatLab or R?

Yes, very much so. It does require programming knowledge and can be done using Matlab/C++/Java.

What is the difference between Ultra High Frequency Trading and HFT ?
