Use of Matlab Simulink with FPGA hardware option for ultimate ultra low latency HFT option if you want DMA

FPGA Hardware

Altera

Xilinx

This could be the best option but do understand you don’t get the slickness and support of a powerful platform like Deltix. The hardware can be very expensive at $3k per board. To develop models is through Matlab Simulink which can be code generated to FPGA. This process could be exhaustive as compared to Deltix but you have ability to fully customize your own algos/models/strategies. Also, you will need to spend another $20k for ModelSimulator to validate models before they are synthesized onto the board. If you are looking for the absolute lowest latency, FPGA is the way to go. There will be lots of self learning as compared to lack of resources through a platform like Deltix. Also, full licensing costs of Matlab with Simulink and Simulink could reach $20+k. FPGA is really useful if you want to trade in a Direct Market Access arrangement with is another very expensive option but this is what the big boy operators do. We need to consult with a vendor on these options.

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
