Speed, or lack thereof, kills.
In one of the first studies to quantify the opportunity cost of slow algorithmic trades, Martin L. Scholtus and Dick van Dijk of the Erasmus University Rotterdam found that on an average trading day, a delay of 200 milliseconds can result in significant missed opportunities.
