Amixo is a high-frequency trading (HFT) project. That refers to the use of algorithmic trading programmes that enable our team to make thousands of high-speed trades in a fully automated fashion on an intra-day (occurring within a day) basis.
In light of crypto asset volatility, it should come as no surprise that high-frequency trading has found a home in the crypto asset markets as there is ample opportunity to make intra-day trading profits from trading in and out of an asset given the frequency of significant price swings.
Given that cryptocurrencies are still in a relatively new phase of adoption from the institutions, they are the ideal playing ground for our sophisticated and lightning fast algorithms.
The HFTs provide a beneficial service especially to the likes of large institutions that the crypto community so craves. They provide vast amounts of liquidity that can quickly and easily be deployed. Liquidity is important for us.
It means that we can efficiently get our orders executed without much “slippage” in our order. Mass liquidity will also drive down margins and keep them razor thin. Thin margins will benefit not only the investor but also our firm.
It is important to invest now! Here’s why.
There is one thing that is certain to be eliminated in the presence of advanced HFT firms. This is the presence of previously lucrative arbitrage opportunities that crypto traders have been banking on.
As the HFT firms have demonstrated in the Equity and bond markets, more competition will drive down the potential opportunities for market mispricings. As more of these firms start entering the markets, these profitable trades are likely to disappear. Therefore it is important that we profit it from it now while we still can!
