Do FIX Documents HAVE to be bad?https://fixspec.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/do-fix-doc-bad-1.jpg1440944FixSpecFixSpec//fixspec.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/fixspec_gantt_altblue_greystrokeAsset-17.png
I spend far more time thinking and talking about FIX documentation than… well pretty much anybody I’ve ever met. Despite being an outwardly-boring subject that is just too easy to swat away with objections like…
