Easy to read and follow. Less math and no code.>> do you know other books accompanied by c++ code snippets ?It depends what you really want to see. Are you interested more in the strategy itself or more in the dma ( order routing) ?Furthermore for research or fast prototyping c++ is not a very good choice. I would prefer more matlab or R .

I would prefer more matlab or R .i'm interested in both strategy and dma. you're might be right using Matlab or R at early stage. I would use R.At the same I'd like to see how do professional take advantage of C++, as i'm not in the field.

Maybe he means that the Aamazon reviews are a clear indicator that it's useless.

It's a reasonable introduction, gives some basic stuff to stimulate thoughts for your own strategies.

I'm not sure there is a decent book on this subject, would love to find one for my recommended reading list.Tried contacting Ms. Aldridge about reviewing her book, got a frosty reply.

HFT is an iceberg. 95% of finance population is almost completely illiterate on the subject as well as on order execution in general (!!!). If you go for academic references on HFT the situation is even more abysmal. Almost all the books so far are useles. Literature on Market Microstructure is no exception - full of mathematical models that, perhaps, are highly acclaimed in academia and not a single one is applied by HFT shops in their trading.And besides, HFT is changing - if somebody writes a decent book on the subject - it'll be as good as a BW photo taken 2 centuries ago....

where does my question come from ...as an agri analyst/trade adviser i don't think at all in terms of automated-trading (lato sensu) terms.btw i dig in that area at nightime and i found out that simple but profitable entry/exit rules can found out for agri futures.now i'd like to know what does a professional HFT strategy looks like, i mean what's their "advancedness" if i can say.

yuryr, you may well be right that all HFT books are crap, but we can't know that for a fact yet.
