HI there

I have figured out a quick and dirty way to have a Microsoft .NET application call a Matlab function. This could be useful for an open source trading platform like Tradelink to call a Matlab trading strategy or model. This is exclusive to my Premium Membership.


I had an aha moment late last nite. I always knew about how to bridge C# or any Microsoft .NET application to call Matlab functions. This could be done through the Automation COM server.  I even tried it out which worked really well with sample source code. I was surprised how easy it was compared to trying through WCF which is part of the Microsoft .NET framework. WCF is just a pain to set up as you need a server and client with other moronic setting up. I abandoned that pretty quick. but the Automation COM server worked really well. I even created a private video with a C# source code application to download to showcase this capability. As said earlier, this is only available to my QuantLabs Premium Members.


Also, I have added a recent video about the direction of next steps for the Membership as well

Thanks Bryan

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
