There is a substantial risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

Hence the absurd impracticality for retail traders to consider HFT, when you’ll need a custom FPGA to calculate and execute at that time scale, along with a direct connection to the exchange. Not worth it.
