Hmmmm ... some very impressive so-called "real time" monetary values being thrown around on that display ... but I would tend to believe that they
would be highly inaccurate at the worst and essentially a "guestimate" at the very best.
Sure, from the point of "shock value", these types of displays achieve their goal but unfortunately there is NO
way of ascertaining the
accuracy of the information being presented or the legitimacy of the data (if any) that is being used to drive the calculations.
To update all the dollar values multiple times per second, extremely accurate
and verifiably genuine information and data would have to be
continuously input from impeccably reliable sources, processed immediately and then used to update the display.
Somehow I find that such a massive amount of data acquisition and processing most likely is NOT
driving the updated values ... most likely
there's nothing more impressive than an algorithm being used instead that simply generates approximations and then continuously extrapolates these
approximations in "real time" to give the illusion of accuracy.
