Is this entire list of possible HFT capable with commercial software and hardware FPGA options? Very serious shopping ahead

Is this the entire list of possible HFT capable with commercial software and hardware FPGA options? Very serious shopping ahead

If your company is not listed below, please comment below. I am very very serious in investigating both software and hardware options for HFT capable options. I will update each listed below in an independent posting. Yes I know about Matlab and R.

My how things radically change on one phone. All I can say is I am investigating 3rd party HFT hardware and/or solutions for expediting the platform development. Geez, who would have thought.

For HFT: Nvidia CUDA Visual C++ financial examples show power of GPU versus horrendous cluster hardware management

For HFT: Nvidia CUDA Visual C++ financial examples show power of GPU versus horrendous cluster hardware management

With the research below it seems that CUDA may be the easiest way to go working off the supplied CUDA examples for financial needs. There will be no need of clustering, servers, etc which will make life so much easier. The outstanding item is to see C++ CUDA examples with trading signals which I am now seeking.

1. Download CUDA toolkit https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads. I am using Windows 7

2. Import the samples into Visual Studio 2010 and look at the C++ Financial samples

Note on how CUDA is much faster than Open GL espeecially on GeForceGTX 480. Below is used for technical indicators.

The listed GeForce board is quite affordable as well for $340 for 480 cores. Nice!

Note: I have dropped the idea of Fastflow with Visual C++> The author did not bother showing how to use Cmake to build the library so I dropped the idea. I really don’t care about the benchmark anyhow as I just want to see it work as fast as possible.

Revealed! The nuts-and-bolts HFT hardware I’m using

Hi there,

Bryan here from Quantlabs.net.

When I first got interested in quant trading, there were several topics that really fascinated me. One of the most obscure was the specific architecture of a quant trading computer system.

Exactly how powerful a set-up do you need to run a complete HFT (high frequency trading) automated algorithm, anyway?

It’s been a long journey as I built out my intranet and infrastructure step by step: trial and error all the way. I did a lot of hair-pulling. A lot of pounding on computer desks. And I don’t think my mother would have appreciated some of my language when things didn’t go according to plan!

But today I can reveal the surprising answer — including a complete hardware and software inventory:

* 1 Intel i7 Windows 7 server for .NET trading platform and data feed connectors and all the trimmings

* 1 Dual Core Ubuntu Master for Redis back end and other Java processes and R processes

* 2 older PCs used as R doRedis workers for cluster slaves with R and Java systems

* 2 old Mac Minis and 1 G4 Mac used as R cluster slave workers and potential limited Java apps Java processes including Stock Exchange simulator and Stock and other Market asset screeners

And that’s it!

Less than you expected, I bet. But the important take away from this inventory list is what I’m about to do with it. Live algo testing. Simulated (and then live) trading. Making money, and lots of it.

I’d love to show you those intimate, proprietary details. But only Premium members will get access to this info.

Good trading,

As I build out my intranet and infrastructure for my upcoming fully automated system. Here is the hardware and software inventory:

1 Duo Core Ubuntu Master for Redis back end and other Java processes and R processes

2 Older PCs used as R doRedis workers for cluster slaves with R and Java systems

Hope this helps.

Quant development PDF IBM looks solid with Websphere, MQ Series, Java, Linux, and hardware for ultra <1 ms low latency solutions

PDF IBM looks solid with Websphere, MQ, Java, Linux, and hardware for ultra <1 ms low latency solutions

This PDF makes IBM look like a solid choice for low latency through a tweaked Java and Websphere solution. This is exactly what a lot of the big banks maybe using for some of their solutions. Just saying.
