24-26 April 2017  Invited Speaker to Rice University, Houston, Texas USA

24 April 2017, 7th Eubank Conference on Real World Markets at the
Centre for Computational Finance and Economic Systems of Rice University.
The theme of the 7th Eubank Conference is on High Frequency Trading: Mitigating Its Impact on Trading and Investing

Sheri will join thought leaders like Joe Saluzzi (author of Broken Markets:How High Frequency Trading and Predatory Practices on Wall Street are Destroying  Investor Confidence ) and John Ramsay of IEX.  IEX is the iconic new electronic stock exchange which was featured in a BBC Newsnight program about a couple of months back. IEX will implement ‘speed bumps’ to halt the arms race in the speed of order submissions by high frequency traders who IEX founders claim are rigging the market against slower institutional investors like pension funds (see also http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36544970 ).  IEX also features in Michael Lewis’s Flash Boys as the crusading and reforming institution which is challenging the rapacious practices in the electronic asset markets that are detrimental to the social good.  So it is cool to share the platform with them…
