摘要： Algorithmic trading has proliferated across global FX markets over the past decade. Today, roughly 20% of the institutional foreign exchange trading volume is now executed through algos.

摘要： When first introduced, algorithms were designed primarily for automation to mimic a trader executing orders in pursuit of specific benchmarks.

In the most recent phase, leading providers on the sell-side have begun to use quantitative measures into their execution strategies, most notably integrating machine learning principles.
