My New Years Resolutions for 2015 Lessons learned in automated algorithmic trading in 2014

After 5 years doing this:

My New Year’s Resolutions for 2015, What I learn to be a better automated trader in 2014?

  1. I hate people with small minds

You know, those that say, yah butt, what about the drawdowns, etc.

  1. I hate lazy people

They cannot turn on a computer but wanna become HFT masters in 5 hours.

  1. I don’t respect people who cannot innovate

Dear God, open up the gates this one will be up in a second.

  1. I am not very good with those who like to be in a bubble, denial, or expect to be millionaires next days via some push button technology

Yeh no wonder you are at the bottom of the gutter looking up from the bottom.

  1. I don’t handle leeches/FREEtards and open source tree hugging hipsters who expect everything for free

Please seek a job at Microsoft to really know how it really works in the software business.

  1. No I don’t want to work with/for you because you will throw me $50k or more to manage
  2. But WAIT, there’s more with a video here:

Honestly, this gets confusing. Which compiler? Which library/API? Which parallel approach? Which Linux distribution? To .NET or .NOT? Hmmm….let’s talk
Here they are:

Here they are:

  1. Who is using C++ for their high speed trading system? What functions within your system?
    2. What parts of Boost library are you using and for what purpose?
    3. Who still believes in STL? Anyone using C structures or even pointers? How do you handle memory management in an efficient manner?
    4. What compilers do you use? Anyone using Visual Studio C++ compiler? Anyone using Intel for speed boost? How about Borland? Anyone preferring GCC/G++? Compatibility issues?
    5. What sort of integrated development environment do you use for non Windows? Mac? Linux?
    For advanced Higher Frequency Trading (HFT) techniques:
    6. Anyone doing any heavy threading/multi concurrency? Which libraries do you use? Fastflow? TBB? OpenMP?
    7. For high frequency trading uses: Anyone using any interesting low level techniques for ‘hooking’ into the operating system like the Linux kernel? Low level driver or assembly translation techniques?
    8. Anyone using working with brokers within C or C++? i.e. HFT Lime Brokers? Experiences to share?
    9. Is there a definitive argument or experience for those that think Java is still get faster performance vs C/C++? What techniques?
    10. Anyone using C++ or C for an in memory database for rolling their own solution to handle efficiency of market data ticks? Any techniques to be shared that shows advantages of other solutions (i.e. NOSQL Redis)?
    11. Anyone choosing to deploy C or C++ embedded solutions for hardware only options via FPGA or ASIC?
    12. Anyone else want to share techniques for HFT purposes that might be known in the public domain?
    13. Open ended discussion with full Q&A

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
