Default Re: Why is Latency so Important for Forex Trading?

If you are scalping - taking a lot of orders during a short period of time - low latency is very important, because you'll get more accurate execution and less requotes. Latency is also very important to HFT (High Frequency Trading) arbitrage traders who want to profit from quote difference on two or more liquidity providers - but that's totally another story.
