You can use any pattern that suits the type of update. PULL is one
option if there is exactly one client. Otherwise, perhaps PUB from
worker to SUB at client, if updates can be broadcast. If updates need
handshaking, i.e. order placement and confirmation, then DEALER in
worker and ROUTER in clients.
