Precision Timestamping

A few milliseconds is a great advantage

MiFID II has introduced much closer regulation and monitoring of algorithmic trading. Imposing new and detailed requirements on algorithmic traders and the trading venues on which they trade.

Firms that previously took advantage of exemptions of MiFID must now become authorised to continue to trade using a HFT technique. The new requirements state that firms using a HFT technique must record timestamps of all 'trading events' for at least five years with:

  • a maximum divergence of 100 microseconds from UTC
  • a granularity of 1 microsecond or better

  • We are partnered with several networking manufacturers that provide MiFID II compliance throughout the chain; from market data to order for full accuracy.
