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

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.

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:

Python most popular language teaching at school

Python most popular language teaching at school

They are teaching those 11 year olds in this

The programming language Python has overtaken French as the most popular language taught in primary schools, according to a new survey released today.

Six out of ten parents said they want their primary school age children to learn the coding language over French. And 75% of primary school children said they would rather learn how to programme a robot than learn a modern foreign language.

The survey, which sampled 1,000 five to 11 year olds, 1,000 11 to 16 year olds and 1,000 parents, was commissioned by Ocado Technology to assess progress made since the new Computing curriculum was introduced exactly a year ago today.

Could Ocaml be new language for algo trading

Could Ocaml be new language for algo trading

After posting this article last week

Writing computer code, or at the least being conversant in the firm’s program of choice, OCaml, is a requisite for all traders. Indeed, new traders must complete a monthlong OCaml boot camp before they start trading.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/23/business/dealbook/a-new-breed-of-trader-on-wall-street-coders-with-a-phd.html?emc=edit_dlbkam_20160223&nl=dealbook&nlid=74450645&ref=dealbook&_r=1

Then I had this dialogue with a real algo trading firm:

Brian, good article, moved some of my Python code to Ocaml late last year

Bryan, the part I moved improved it run time by 20% (vs Python and C++)

It was a large math section of code

C++ was slower than using Ocaml

yes, you can covert python code to Ocaml

Anyone out there who has any further knowledge of this?

Which programming language to use when algo or automated trading

What programming language to use when algo or automated trading

I have just passed five years of doing QuantLabs.net. If you have been following me for a while, some of you may have noticed that I jump around various technologies. This includes: .Net, C-sharp, C++, Java, R, Matlab, many many databases, Windows, and various distributions of Linux. As my recent switch to Python, many thought I would resort back to one of the other technologies. Surprisingly I have stuck with it which means this could be the technology of choice for my new live trading system.

 

Go here to see my explanation of which programming languages to use when it comes to algorithmic based or automated trading

Intro to my Python algo trading course series

Coming up over the weekend will be some exciting demos I’ll be releasing in my usual videos. These new trading Scripts will be available for all my Quant Elite members. Be on the lookout for those.

 

These will also be part of my upcoming new “Course Series” on building out your first algorithm based trading system. This is how we will be able to secure your portfolio over the next few years. That is all because of volatility baby.

 

Check out the preview video here

 

As a reminder, I will be putting out my itinerary on the importance of YOUR trading infrastructure to build out these type of systems. My intention is to make them as simple as possible using only open source technologies enabling to keep it at a cost of free.
