Title: Milliseconds, Microseconds, Nanoseconds - What is Low Latency All About?

In High-Frequency Trading, financial institutions can gain a competitive advantage through pricing and trading faster than ever before - the so-called "Race to Zero". Through discussing their experiences working in FX trading (the biggest financial market in the world), Ian and Daniel will describe how to drive down latencies to achieve both greater throughput and improved P&L. Just how fast is "Fast Enough", and what is the minimum continuous improvement required to stay with the pack?
