Is C++ and R  the future development stack for high frequency trading platforms aka HFT?

possibly, if there’s a strong emphasis on math and programming during the major, or if you plan on doing a MBA or PHD in a mathematical field. I majored in Finance&Economics and Applied Mathematics (I had no social life for 4 years lol) but we were lucky enough to learn statistical modeling at a pretty young age with R and if you can take some courses in C++ at college because I had to teach myself after graduation, and it wasn’t fun. XD

The above is from:

As I say, the combination of C++ and R could be the future of high frequency trading platforms. Our new platform is based on this.

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
