HÀ NỘI — The temporary suspension of automatic order placement services, or high-frequency trading (HFT), is necessary in the short term, given the recent technological infrastructure capacity of the stock market, but regulators need to allow the deployment of these services in the future. According to SSC's assessment, using robots to place automatic online trading orders with high frequency poses many potential risks and affects the stability of the stock market. “In Việt Nam, quantitative investment funds have not yet developed strongly, copy trading activities are only at a small-scale experimental level. However, the current technology infrastructure of the Vietnamese stock market cannot meet this need. Therefore, applying automatic order placement at this time can have a negative impact on the market, especially on small investors.
