No but seriously I have a systematic setup on 1 tick chart, but its' not magical its the risk management that accompanies it that makes it successful ("cough cough martingale " ), Also I have to trade it manually don't think it can be done auto.
Is it possible to have HFT strategy without clients? I thought it was about getting in front of Big orders...

nice thing to make huge amount of money in one day, problem:
-need to have VERY fast computers and internet connection (also its good to be close to stock market phisically)
-need to be very good (i mean really gooooood) at math....
for instance, i study computer science: software engeneering. and we had a topic about artificial intelligence-thats something you could use on stock market even playing on normal computer... wonder what result would it give
From what I understand, HFT is not realistic for the individual trader.
As the poster above mentioned, you would need to purchase property and a line close to one of the exchanges, have extremely well equipped computers as well as programmers. It requires a vast amount of money and know how that wouldn't really be realistic for someone starting from scratch.
