Though data latency attracts a lot of attention because of its necessity for algorithmic—not just high-frequency—trading, it isn’t the only game in town. And because it is bounded by physical limits—i.e. the speed of light, or whatever is faster than light, for when we find a way to transmit data by some other means—it has a limited shelf life for delivering competitive advantage, compared to inputs that might yield more value, long-term.
Meantime, the low-latency marketplace continues to grow—by 1.5 percent in 2012 and 4.5 percent over the next three years, according to Tabb Group, which places current sell-side spend on data distribution technologies at $3.6 billion.
