High frequency trading.

They’ve spent tens of millions tunnelling thru mountains and setting up microwave links so as to cut milliseconds off the communication time between Chicago and New York: it’s to make sure New York traders don’t have too much of an advantage over Chicago traders.
This is ridiculous. It’s a waste of money. Why doesn’t everyone involved just agree to trade once per second or per every tenth of a second. Then everyone in the US, or indeed in the World would be on an equal footing. Or perhaps I’ve missed something. 

See here 46 minutes after start.
