When to use Java or C++ in automated trading

Another Meetup conversation on this topic from my webinar

Well, if you can help me. So for now, everything is very new. I need open source tools for trade market projects. (tools for stock market), I am newbie I can speak something wrong, please forgive me. I need algorithms to trade market, I need something about low latency. The programming language with better performance is C ++. In a moment you commented on Java, but Java has the garbage collector. Want to comment on this? Thank you for your availability!



Java is easier to code and usually will never need to worry about garbage collection since you most likely won’t have the capital to worry about ultra low latency. As for open-source start with r and r-bloggers for samples within trading

and… more… So I’m also knowing pens, and maybe I’m reading use. I see availability and, if it is easy to install and use the web server. And, as is its use for games. If it is scalable. Now too, I go see about r. thank you!


Java is the most scalable out there with tomcat or jboss as webservers

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
