Algo trading in energy: Group activity

Thumbnail Steffen Krutzinna, Team Manager Trading, Next Kraftwerke

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS
Algo trading is being implemented in many companies, but there are still areas where humans have to call the shots and the right answer isn’t obvious. This session will allow anyone involved in such activities to get a sense of what others are doing and what the best practices are in that field.

After a brief introduction by the presenters, the audience will get a chance to reflect on a few questions posed by the presenters for 30 minutes. One of them will be:
An algorithm did great in backtesting, but the first day in production was devastating. What do you do, when do you stop?
The other questions to reflect on will be chosen by the audience itself via the voting function, out of suggestions by the presenters.

The remaining time will be dedicated to sharing findings from table discussions for the benefit of the entire audience, and with the guidance and support of the presenters.

KEYNOTE
It is clear that we are heading towards the wall: the planet is in danger. This terrible observation is not only made by experts and scientists, each of us is beginning to measure the seriousness of the situation in our daily lives. Natural resources are shrinking like a stone in the face of the imperatives of our growth model. Our societies are therefore faced with a global challenge that invites us to change our logic and to reinvent life on earth. Controlled and virtuous, technology can stop this logic of self-destruction and help build a more fraternal and humanistic society.
