Just talked to a person from my market feed vendor, and they confirmed that the main reason for the feed's 10 second delay is political - i.e., opposition to the feed to begin with from NYSE and the Specialist firms. NYSE also claims "technology issues" as a basis for the 10-second delay. If it is in fact a technology issue, how can NYSE claim that it is so technologically advanced ? I mean, how many vendors are out there that supply real-time streaming feeds ???? Has anyone heard if/when NYSE plans to make this feed real-time ?
