I don't disagree with the gist of the Nanex article and freely admit that they have far more experience in these matters than do I--furthermore, they have more timely access to much better data and have more computation power than I command. I point all this out simply to say that I do not claim to have written that portion of the post--the decision to append it to my article was made by the operators of Zero Hedge. Their website--their decision.
Now about that Nanex article . . .
CQS is on the losing side of history. The ability to increase the ability of hardware to deal with a volume of information pales in comparison to the ability to generate more noise by digital means. In fact, given the rates of increase proposed by CQS (33% last week, another 25% in October), I would guess that CQS is increasing their capacity several orders of magnitude more slowly than the rate at which algo traders can increase their data transmission.
