If HFTs [High Frequency Traders] are making the big bucks in those markets, then we should be jumping on the bandwagon and taking advantage of that non-level playing field. Anything for an edge, and we all quest for the elusive edge, the overlay, and the HFT boys have won this round….for now. I admire those who can use technology to beat the market with better data, better systems, better and faster execution etc. This is just a culmination of the quest for a distinct edge first publicly demonstrated by N.M.Rothschild when he used courier pigeons to relay news faster than the competition.

    You neglect to mention one of the most important things about using technology, and that is the choice of which markets to model.
