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.

As I mentioned in the previous post most beginners confuse between HFT and scalping with a frequent level of trading, not because they really attempt HFT.

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