Why waste your time hand coding your strategy or model for your HFT trading platform’s native programming language?

Why waste your time hand coding your strategy or model for your HFT trading platform’s native programming language?

Once again, I am learning how people are hand coding their strategies in their platforms native language like C++, Java or C#. Why would you do that? That is why I am trying to use ways to bridge code from either proven prototyping products or statistical tools. If you want to waste your time hand coding an unproven strategy, go for it. I won’t stop you but it could lead you down the wrong path. In some cases years, or other cases dozens of programmers who get fired due to some guys vision of his potentially unprofitable strategy. Believe me, I have seen it. It isn’t pretty especially when it involves a spouse!  Anyhoo…. I have got two options at my disposal to alleviate this dilemma with my new HFT platform. Don’t ask me about it ’cause I am not going to tell you. You have two choices to follow on this:

1. Search and search and search my blog or anywhere else online. Good luck! Or follow me via my email list or Linked In to get an idea.

2. OR…join my QuantLabs.net Premium membership now to save the time and maybe even your relationship.  Sacrifices may need to be made if you believe in what you believe.

The choice is yours.



NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

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 youtube.com/quantlabs
