Fastflow multicore C++ for potential HFT like performance trading

Over the coming weeks, you’ll start to see me focus more on trading concepts versus technology. There seems to be a much more lucrative interest from professional traders recently so I’d like to start focusing on them in the future. I’ve already done an email on that a few days ago.


As I start to focus on more low latency, lower-level trading software to meet higher speeds of both market tick capturing and order management. I will not really call this high-frequency trading but this is being designed with that in mind. The biggest and most crucial aspect of it all is multi-core processing for all your algorithms analyzing done in parallel. There are a few languages that can do this but C++ is the most efficient which is why all the HFT shops to use it. We all know that is the way in terms of being a standard.


So if you go onto my YouTube channel, you will find a playlist that focuses on a C++ multi-core framework called FastFlow. Most recently, I just made a 20-minute video on the future of my high speed automated trading software.

The final dance? High speed trading software architecture

In fact, I have set aside Monday night to do a live webinar Meetup where you can challenge me on all these concepts. Any technical person is clearly invited to talk about it. Just to let you know, this will be the only time I will talk about it in detail. Also, don’t expect any source code to be released for it. I will only be presenting high level concepts in my usual ghetto presentation style

Pretty trading charts with Matplotlib and PyQtChart

The following night, for Tuesday, I will be presenting all the desired Python and Qt choices I have at my disposal. They are of course open source.

This is the second last module I am presenting as part of my “Independent trading business in Python” course series. The very last module which will be presented on Tuesday, May 3 where I will be discussing graphical user interface rapid development with Qt Designer.

I always have my source code available with live demos for question-and-answer’s at these times.


We are coming down to the wire before I start getting into the next phase for strategy development starting the following Tuesday on May 10. This first phase will focus on pair trading or arbitrage for any equity that Yahoo Finance tracks. That actually gives you access to over 158,000 tradeable instruments! Consider this: this is where pure maximum potential resides! Why trade link a chump? And in coming weeks to months, all of this will disappear. Vanish! Goodbye!


Once again, this is part of my Algorithmic Trading course series.

Thanks Bryan

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

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
