Actually Steve it’s 300,000 meters per millisecond, and probably less if they are propagating through copper. Wink

 

In any event this is a VERY good debate. I am reading it with keen interest.

    Monsters in the Market

Apparently the most sopisticated algorithmic “Monsters in the Market” are designed to detect and defeat their weaker, less sophisticated, brethren and to improve their strategy by learning.

[quote]Average daily share volume on the New York Stock Exchange increased by 181 percent between 2005 and 2009, while the time required to execute a trade on its electronic systems dropped to 650 microseconds.[/quote] …or 195 km at light speed.
