(1) Gain a BASIC UNDERSTANDING of the types and strategies of HFT, the way different brokers rout orders, the brokers that facilitate HFT in their dark pools and the impact of trading with HFT on your performance. (2) Execute exclusively through 'SMART' BROKERS and use tools that specialise in searching for liquidity without signalling your intentions to the market. (3) AVOID SUBMITTING ROUND LOT ORDERS that signal to HFT the presence of a human operator.
