Use case for Python C Cpp vs other language in HFT low latency trading environment

I just created a new 50-minute video explaining how I plan to differentiate my uses of both Python and C++ programming. In this same video, I do a highlight of the backstory of all the different programming languages I have looked at for automated trading over the years.


Visit here for that video

Trading with Interactive Broker and limitation of Metatrader with forex brokers


Not only did this video get created, another video was made to explain the use of Interactive Brokers TWS. I also try to highlight the limitations of using Forex trading brokers with software like Metatrader.


Check out this video here. 


As you can see, I’m hoping to present an optimized stack for low frequency automated trading systems. At the same time though, I could easily transition this code base to accommodate high speed trading as well. The only question is how will it perform against high-end boards like FPGA or GPU? From my point of view, it does not matter since C++ can easily integrate into either of these APIs provided by leading hardware manufacturers.


Thanks for reading Bryan


CRUCIAL PS. I am putting a hard set date together of July 12 for removing all source code demos and references to my Phase 1 equity trading/arbitrage. I am currently teaching this up until July 5. For Tuesday night, I will be hosting my technical analysis step. As said, this is a one-time deal only and will be only available to my current and new Quant Elite members.

Details of my algo trading in Python series here (remember that the Phase 1 Arbitrage will be removed permanantly after Jul 12)

Here are the pricing options:

As said, it now comes down to NOW or NEVER!

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
