A real time trading expert witness typically has extensive experience in algorithmic trading, economic analysis and/or financial markets. Cahn Litigation Services is the expert witness placement service provider of choice by law firm clients to locate an expert witness that can support real time trading and other financial services matters.
Real time trading in financial markets refers to up-to-the-second and accurate price quotes of securities; in contrast to other financial services (certain websites, for example) that provide delayed quotes, even up to 20 minutes. Access to real time quotes is important to traders, as a profitable situation can quickly turn into a loss. Long term investing strategies are not usually concerned with real time trading.
A U.S. investor is protected by FINRA, a not-for-profit organization that oversees broker-dealers. FINRA utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to watch market activity and provide support to investors, regulators, and policy makers.
Representative matters that call for an expert in financial and real time trading legal disputes involve issues pertaining to:
Litigation support by a real time trading expert witness could represent either the plaintiff or defendant, and work could include case review, arbitration, expert opinion, an expert report, expert testimony, and/or trial testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request an expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a securities industry expert or financial advisor for pre-litigation consulting services.
While many experts have expertise in real time trading, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby a juror can understand the litigation matters and evidence.
