I enjoyed the article, thank you. My question to the author is WHEN did HFT really begin to become a significant volume of the US FUTURES markets? I've heard somewhere around 2007 or so? Before that, I read human traders were the greater VOL. Anyone with knowledge may answer pls. Thank you.

ENjoyed but......

Thanks for the article but interested to know what 'games' you think the HFTer's can get away with on the futures Xchanges? OK so they will do co-location, but unless they can find futures products traded on multible other Xchanges then no arbitraging for them. Interested in your thoughts.
thanks
