Hi, thanks for organizing this challenge!
I’ve got a quick question regarding the “tod” parameter:
On the Data Challenge website, it is specified that the “tod” parameter is to be interpreted as: “when the trade was executed, given as a number of milliseconds since midnight (local time).”(quote)
However, when looking as the Data (cf picture), it appears that the values are way too large to correspond to any local time taken since midnight and would more likely represent a time in years from a certain date.
Besides, during the live presentation of the challenge it was -If I’m not mistaken- specified that days were randomized purposely so as the problem might not be considered from a time series perspective.
So my question would be: could you please provide a little bit more info about those timestamps? Is since midnight (local time) to be understood as since midnight (local time) of a specific year? But then how come we can derive from this the exact day when the Dataset was built to make it -as far as I understood it -inaccessible?
Hope I’m clear enough in my request, any additional insight would be welcome,
Thanks in advance,
EDIT: of course this question also applies to the ts_last_update parameters
