Maybe i missed something...

But, have you experienced a failure ? or an edge ? being milliseconds alignee with an atomic clock ?

Or is this discussion about something different ?
In general i will avoid trading shortly before and shortly after important economic new events
and still from time to time i get toasted (like this week in 6b, not in a bad way, but i missed
a major series or 'triggers'... that were not flagged

Would be keen to get your ideas about this..

i'm not on HFT
a second does not make any difference..
