Quant development: 101 trading technology. Where to start?


I’ve pretty good knowledge of “retail” platforms (TradeStation style).

The rest (broker and exchange side) is totally obscure for me.

If I wanted to start learning a bit on that, where should I start?


This book is not specific to a particular platform but a good overview of broker and exchange DMA technology. http://www.algo-dma.com

• Thanks very much, I’ll take a look.

would you describe your ultimate goal? I would recommend different sources if you were trying to program a trading system vs. trying to get a job on a trading floor. Were you interested in figuring out ARCA or Level 2 so you could trade better

Sorry for hijacking Horacio thread.. but since you already posed the question.. I am interested in getting deeper understanding of the trading system (as a workflow and system level understanding) as I am working on developing one. What books/resources would you recommend for that?
