Oanda vs LMAX forex broker battle with weekly meetup for Quant Elite members
From a Quant Elite member
1 About forex brokers, lmax seems to have a better business model than oanda.
so, have your looked lmax before, (e.g. type of progamin languages I need to learn first for lmax?)
–> LMAX is better with wider selecton of currencies but you need 10K of your base country. Oanda is nothing so that it who I go with just for this small amount to fund an account. The priority is to find successful algos with minimal loss through Oanda hopefully.
2 Usually when will you have online meetup or online training? I’m not very clear.
–> We do it every Monday at 8 PM EDT. Just check for the latest GotoMeeting login ids at quantlabs.net/academy

The battle between open source tools for quant development: R, Matlab clone Octave, and Python
This is quite surprising as R appears to be difficult to learn compared to the others. I kind of don’t agree with that but I will admit the language syntax is wonky. It is claimed that R was created by non programmers. Nice. I see no reason for Octave as I got Matlab. Here is the link anyhow:
