Every trader wants to do a deal at the very best price. In today’s financial markets, speed is calculated by milli-, micro-, and nanoseconds – if it takes your system more nanoseconds than another trader’s to send you a price or to send your order to the Financial Exchange, the impact will be financial. Low-latency optimisation for traders is therefore key to financial success. This paper sets out, at a high level, the ways in which traders can optimise the route between an electronic trading platform and a Financial Exchange’s matching machine. Time is money.
