    I'm looking for some insight if TotalView ITCH feed, BATS multicast PITCH and other similar feeds can give hft algo advantage compare to a normalized feed from a specialized broker.

    Should I be concerned about access to a row feed to have any advantage on market-making and stat. arb. strategies?
    If there any useful information in raw feed?

  2. They wouldn't exist if there were no reason for them to.
