(I don’t recommend the current version of Marketcetera)

This is the only true complete open source Java project I know for High Frequency Trading


This has not been attempted but you may want to use the EXACT versions as indicated here!

How to Build legacy Marketcetera



To install current version Marketcetera on Ubuntu Linux 14

Required and install instructions:

Maven 3

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:natecarlson/maven3sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install maven3

sudo apt-get install subversion

sudo apt-get install eclipse-platform

I confirmed that the source repository exists

Install the latest version of Eclipse RCP version(or just the PDE pluin for Eclipse) as well

For String Substitution variables

Variable name `mvn` and value is `mvn` (*Linux*)

Still delayed at building this thing in Ubuntu 14 Linux

I tried the Windows EXE version with this Photo, I was able connect to local Strategy Server install but strategies were not connection due to some exception. This is not worth pursuing any further if the EXE version cannot run as compared to other project so I am not moving forward with it. The Order Loader always crashes to so there are way to many bugs it appears.

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
