    Why ask this here? This sub is about accounting - I'll move it.

    Generally HFT shops are market makers, there isn't a 'difference'.

    Depends what you define as 'normal' trading. The only difference is you write code, which is then deployed to make trades for you (at hyper speeds) vs you making the trades yourself. Trading at prop shops is generally algorithmic/HFT in nature vis a vis market making in a non cash equities desk at a bank.

    Even with this, there's discretionary trading, pairs trading (usually used at market neutral hedge funds) etc.. The Q is too broad.
