See…writing your own trading software is really the only solution and choice you have to true profitablity
This just came in from Linked In:
Firstly, thanks for accepting my invitation to connect. I’m following you on Quantlabs.net (youtube and your academy forum) for quite some time.
As you can see from my profile I’m since over 15 years professionally developing software (for banks and fin. instis) and some years did also trading. However, prop trading has been overall bad (mostly FX and some futures).
Some weeks back I’ve ordered a live IQFeed data feed and started building a serverside trading module, from the scratch with native C++ only. Lately you came to my mind and I was asking myself I we could collaborate. I know you have gone thru many products, but believe me there is nothing better than your own software which will fullfil your own special needs. I think of firstly implementing some volume based strategies, but I’m still far away. Key topics are in range of millisocend over FIX (NO, no IB! :)), and once running I’ll port to linux. Later I’m dreaming of FPGA. For IQFeed is inceredibly good for its price.
What do you think? Any other ideas?
I just sent this out as a response:
