C++ or Java: Which is better for speed coding?

Sometimes I send out programming tips which will help automated traders maximize their potential. One of the big takeaways recently is the amount of data that is constantly being processed. For instance, my central bank analysis set of drivers total over 25 different data sources. This is just one type of analysis that I used to help gauge market direction in my upcoming automated trading system. In this video below, you will see a high-speed development coding test for both C++ and Java.

This is what my one of my Facebook group members said:


even though its fast forwarded, the proficiency is mind blowning


C++ Linux programming tricks

As we move into lower latency requirements for accessing multiple data sets in parallel, you’ll quickly realize how advanced programming will be needed to maintain your trading edge. It will no longer be about understanding scripting/interpreted languages like Python or R anymore. Sholom B was kind enough to send over a book about programming tricks in C++ and Linux.

Check that out here

I really hope this helps you out and getting a solid understanding of the importance of programming skills in the new era of modern trading over the next generation.
Thanks for reading


P.S. I just posted the webinar Meetup on Sholom B’s favourite set of quant finance and trading books here


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
