Time Synchronization's Role in Real-Time Trading
Technical & Application Notes
GPS-enabled network time synchronization enables real-time trading of financial instruments by providing secure, accurate, and reliable time for events across the trading network. When an event occurs and is logged into the realtime database, the time associated with the event is accurate to national and international time standards. Synchronizing the time at which a transaction is executed from one system to another allows these systems to properly process transactions accurately.
