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.

In many instances, absurd impracticality can be the fuel that drives imagination. Without it, would we ever attempt anything outside the box?
