Get Your Programs

There's information about two distinct programs in this issue. In one feature story, we report how U.S. firms are expanding their program trading overseas in a big way. The other program is a different kind: our third annual conference on institutional trading-"Traders Magazine Live: Block Trading Drill Down," on Sept. 24 in New York City. First, the stories: Program trading, according to a Greenwich Associates report, is growing with the expansion of overseas assets. However, the increase in program trading for non-U.S. stocks is growing at a much faster rate than international assets. You'll find some interesting details plucked by senior writer James Ramage, who drilled down into the information in much greater detail than Greenwich provided. You can read more about the state of international program trading on page 46.
