There is a lot of buzz about HFT. Would like to know what is the optimum time range in seconds to achieve low latency? Do we have any standard architecture to achieve the optimum low latency/HFT?

• You should be thinking in microseconds.

 

==

The ultimate end goal for HFT is “0” Tick-to-Trade” latency.
Since we are bound by reality, the closer to “0” the better. Current best in class trading platforms can achieve latencies in the neighborhood of single digit microseconds.

 

==

FPGA allow you to normalize data or perform risk checks and order routing in under 1 microsecond already. We are heading to sub 1 microsecond round trip, which is faster than most exchanges can respond to messages currently.

 

==

I think that the optical (photonic) signal can travel backwards in time and arrive before T=0!

 

==

Negative Infinity

 

==

if your thinking in seconds, you’ve already lost.

 

==

Three time the CPU clock cycle, ideally 1.8 nano secs
