Low latency technologies continue to be deployed by the financial markets – driven by the need to adopt them simply to stay in the trading game, and hopefully win at it. But low latency covers a wide range of components – from networks, to server hardware, to operating systems and middleware, to middleware, and to applications. In the low latency equation, there are many moving parts.
And low latency has moved beyond the task of delivering market data to algo trading engines, and coping with surging market volumes. It is now a requirement for every link in the trade execution and processing chain, even beginning to have relevance to risk management operations. In short, low latency is the new normal.
