No MYSQL database needed, use Matlab Datafeed connector with FREE Yahoo or IQFeed for market data for SImulink trading model

Now it appears I actually don’t need a database connection like MYSQL. I can just use the Matlab Datafeed Toolbox using IQFeed or Yahoo as a source. You can also use Bloomberg or Reuters as another set of options as well. It just depends what you can afford. Of course, this will get ‘streamed’ in to a Matlab workspace matrix much easier with one less layer like a database. Crap, why did I not just think of this earlier? Also, we can worry about integrating the code generated c++ Simulink model  with the IQFeed APi. Let’s just some simple trading models built with Simulnk first shan’t we?

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
