Here is the second of half of this entire evaluation. This includes the following:
1. X_Trader from TradingTechnologies review: This trading platform is leading for professionals with a risky business model
2. Deltix is most feature rich HFT quant trading high end platform on the market!
3. QuantFactory has blah HFT solution not as rich as Deltix or X_Trader
4. Smart Quant is kind of dated and not so polished as compared to the major HFT trading offerings
5. Popular RTS RTD Tango is decent solution for HFT but nothing compared to competition
6. Use of Matlab Simulink with FPGA hardware option for ultimate ultra low latency HFT option if you want DMA
This is well worth the effort to do but I spent 6 hours of my time doing it. This is why I promote the QuantLabs.net Premium Membership to help fund fund these types of investigations. Without my members, efforts like this would not be possible! So thanks to them.
Thanks BryanNOTE 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!
