Does Tradelink trading platform have limitations? Oracle CEP solution?  Open source

This was a comment posted about my Tradelink video:




Tradelink has a lot of limitations. It doesn’t have CEP. If you want to incorporate data other than price data, such as fundamental/event/news data, you need a CEP system.

I know you said that Deltix is too expensive, and that esper/algo-trader/open-source has horrible documentation, but there may be another way.

Have you looked into Oracle Event Processing? It competes with Streambase, Sybase and Apama CEP.

It should be free for developer/academic and non-professional usage. The Documentation is pretty decent.

It can communicate with SQL and Java. So, you can set-up MYSQL to import IQfeed data, then create matlab java functions using the JA/ Builder Tool and then execute using the TWS Java API or Quickfix/J.

You said that the production server for matlab was prohibitively expensive, right, and the adapter that tradelink has for matlab/r/ is proprietary, so, maybe this is a possible solution?

First, CEP is more of a fad than anything. I would easily go with a Big Data solution with Hadoop and other sexy trends technologies. For me, I could easily develop this equivalent in Matlab’s Simulink with Stateflow for event based coding. I see no other need if I want it. You could easily find other .NET libraries that maybe integrated into this. Either way, I like my Stateflow/Simulink option. I have no trust in Oracle with their butchered updates from the Java world.

A decent open source CEP solution would be

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
