Is Matlab SImulink with C++ or FPGA HDL code generation most cost effective over any HFT trading platform software solution?

These interesting comments came from one of muy Youtube visitors: (thanks to him for sending these thoughts)

This got me thinking:

How do you tie matlab into execution without the performance hassles? Simulink can generate c++ code, but Deltix uses c# for script and can also use java for quantserver only.

 

You know, even at that price, after a few months time, each of you would be able to buy your own FPGA board from Dini et. al, anyway.

 

 

If it is possible for Simulink to implement an end-to-end system including execution from within matlab, you can apply that knowledge you gain from the process to FPGA execution

 

–> My response is this could be still the absolute best option for pricing, control of process, flexibility, and adaptability. Also, because of ¬†Simulink code generation to C++, you should be able to easily bridge a FIX solution with even FPGA. Who know until we play right?

Any Recommendations on Cost Effective Data Feeds & Best Broker API for quant development?

Any Recommendations on Cost Effective Data Feeds & Best Broker API for quant development?

 

Does anyone have any recommendations on cost-effective data feeds? I am working on automated trading strategy that requires pricing updates 3 times a day for stocks, options and a few indices (rates & equities).
Additionally, which broker has the best API. Right now I’m strongly leaning toward Interactive Brokers but welcome any recommendations.
==I would recommend IB too. Their API can be programmed in a fair few languages, execution cost is one of the best.
