  21. Payment For Order Flow Business visualized (01/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Let’s begin by lookin at a customer who is looking to submit an order to buy a single share of stock. The process may look something like this. https://preview.redd.it/1f8iie7n6lq61.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=1fd4c76d3e50ae7fb0624ca188c8a50873a41cea Now we have to introduce slippage. Slippage is the money lost during trading, because the market moves in the opposite direction to the trade. Within a trading strategy, slippage is going to exist. In this case with a buy order slippage would occur when you submit a buy order but the stock price goes down during the time it takes to execute the trade. This is because there is some latency between submitting the order to the exchange and getting filled. During that time the price is being updated and it in this case it moves against the order. Let’s say that the stock the buyer is interested in trades at $100. Slippage would look something like this. ​ https://preview.redd.it/femhuvmo6lq61.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=583ef94f9daffb47799733e213a3a489dd845ec2 For the most part every trader will have slippage, the only way to negate slippage is reduce the latency between the computer used for submitting the order and the exchange. That’s a whole business within itself where HFTs reduce latency via colocation and other hardware / software solutions. Also in real life scenarios slippage is probably not as big as the example for most liquid stocks. HFTs are market makers which mean their jobs is to facilitate transactions. Essentially latency based arbitrage is when the HFT trader arbitrages between the market price and the incoming orders. They can do this because they have a faster connection to the exchanges. The process of a high frequency trader making a market for that $100 buy order would look something like this. ​ https://preview.redd.it/g4m4scyp6lq61.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=9b2c15152acc4a793f1c317207bb2df64b6b75fc There are a couple of things worth mentioning when looking at this diagram. The first is that the money that the HFT makes is not always $1, it is probably much smaller. (The FCA estimates its around 0.0042% of liquid stocks see link). Also the placement of the HFT makes it look like it can see ahead in the future, really that is to show that the HFT has a faster connectivity. Now comes payment for order flow. Essentially what happens is that the HFT pays the broker to get a first look at the trade before it hits the exchange. The order flow would look like this. https://preview.redd.it/0k9q38fr6lq61.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=a5627e37eb4fa9b4dd847ec109834b3418eab8ee Something to acknowledge is that when the order is put onto the exchange there will also be slippage as well. Something to note is that volatility plays a huge role in market making. Volatility is the measurement for how big the price movements are. More volatile stocks are going to have bigger prices movements. So stocks with greater volatility will vary greater and which means that the HFT will find a bigger spread. An example of a more volatile stock may look like. https://preview.redd.it/mmqz0czs6lq61.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=4bd69c87e403553d43f1128e097cf9ff31c47fde Without the stock prices or timeline the order flow would look like this. So where does the payment come in, and why would a HFT pay? The HFT pays the brokerage because it gives them a “look-ahead” on the order. From the HFT’s perspective its more cost-effective to pay the broker for the order flow than to find the order on the exchange and compete with other HFTs. The broker uses payment for order flow because they can offer commission-free trading. And the customer uses it because they can trade without commissions. Tracking the payments in payments looks like. Essentially commission-free trading exists because of payment for order flow, without that brokers would have to roll over the commission costs to the customer. There is a reason why HFTs target retail traders rather than institutional traders. Its because retail traders are less likely to leave a trade than institutional investors with HFT. In economics terms the marginal cost of trading is greater for institutional traders than for retail traders. In more simpler terms, if a HFT makes 0.01% on trades an institutional trader trading $1bn would take a bigger hit than a retail trader with $100. From a mathematical-like approach HFTs think like this. https://preview.redd.it/bkzt03ww6lq61.png?width=460&format=png&auto=webp&s=af42571a77339f62f7d16f254547bed13c17105a see more here   submitted by   /u/dial0663 [link]   [comments]

  28. Blackberry (BB) secured another catalyst for growth with Motional. (09/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Sorry if you’re tired of seeing BB on your feed, but this is definitely worth reading. As u/Fairytalezz mentioned: Today 2/9/2021 BB announced its QNX Black channel Communications Technology will be used in Motional’s next generation driverless vehicles. Motional is backed by Hyundai, and coincidentally Hyundai just announced they will NOT be partnering with Apple for a self driving car. Could it be because they got meaningful progress on their own assets and don’t need Apple? Yes, this is just my speculation, but it’s big fucking news for BB. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/blackberrys-qnx-black-channel-communications-130000898.html https://www.automotiveworld.com/news-releases/blackberrys-qnx-black-channel-communications-to-be-used-in-motionals-driverless-platform/ The technology enables Motional to provide safe data communication exchange within the vehicles safety system. Motional is expected to roll out self driving cars by 2023. BB timeline in the past 3 months: Partners with Amazon. Partners with Baidu (The Chinese Google). Partners with Motional (EV). Don’t be deterred by the fluctuation due to the panic selling from the meme stock halt, this is fucking taking off again and this time it will stick without the bullshit. TLDR: Always do what you feel is right for yourself and only invest within your means/ risk tolerance because I am not a financial advisor. My bias opinion is pick up some BB before you miss the fucking rocket. CEO Chen even tweeted out some hints of the events to come. Keep in mind that it has multiple sources giving BB a target price of $25-$30 that were given BEFORE the partnership with Motional. Recently Zack’s upgraded stock to a “#2 Strong buy” with a target of 29.00, and Motley also ranked it a #1 buy with a target price of 30.00. Yahoo Finance also looking bullish.
