The final dance? High speed trading software architecture

Lastly, tonight I’ll be doing what I call my final dance on an architecture for hopefully my high-speed trading system which is being currently worked on. Personally I’m challenging any technical person on my view on how to build this out of the gate. I am also designing with high-frequency trading potential. Personally, I only want to do this right one time only versus all the other crybaby stories I hear about how people’s Home built automated trading systems are slow.

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
