In recent years, with the widespread use of new information technology, quantitative trading has become an important trading method. “The China Securities Regulatory Commission has always attached great importance to the development and supervision of quantitative trading, including bringing quantitative trading into the scope of securities laws, establishing a data collection mechanism for leading quantitative institutions, strengthening quantitative trading monitoring and analysis, establishing a programmed transaction reporting system, and strengthening private equity financing.

There is currently a lot of market discussion about quantitative regulation. Many opinions believe that quantitative trading started late, but developed rapidly and had a greater impact on the market. “The impact of quantitative trading on the market must be viewed dialectically.” Relevant people from the Shanghai and Shenzhen exchanges said that on the one hand, quantitative trading is usually operated with full or high positions, which provides more liquidity to the market and helps promote price discovery; on the other hand, quantitative trading is usually operated with full or high positions.

Convergence, trading convergence, and even trading time convergence further amplify the fluctuations of individual stocks, thereby causing market resonance.

Yang Delong, chief economist of Qianhai Kaiyuan Fund, said that a series of regulatory measures directly address the pain points of quantitative trading and will play a positive role in promoting the stable operation of the stock market.
