Colocating near the exchange

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by Joel Reymont, Feb 11, 2007.

  1. Is anyone running automated and colocated near the exchange?

    What kind of latency do you get and how much does it cost you to rent a server?

    Would you kindly PM me?

    Thanks, Joel
  2. I need to walk before I run. At this point I'm looking at colocating with Velocity. I can then connect to the TT FIX adapter over the LAN and get 20ms or less (I think, need to check).

    My ping time to Chicago is ~220ms so colocating should give me a huge leg up.
  3. Also, you can be within 4ms with Dorman, ZenFire and the CME so maybe I'll go with them instead.

    That's time from trade to confirmation.
