Python do it yourself coding vs 3rd party trading platforms like Multicharts
Questions from someone via my help desk:
Hope all is well. I am at a crossroads right now when it comes to choosing a platform, and coding the proper language for some strategies. Im not interested in wasting too much time, for now. I do have interest down in the road when my time frees up to go through libraries of videos. I have accounts at Interacrive Brokers, and was planning on using Multicharts to execute trades to IB but have come across the open source you were posting about with tradelink. Does this seem like the route to be taking? Coding language for tradelink? I read about guys bashing people for not wanting to pay the $1500/lifetime but for what Ive paid for a lot of programming to get done Id be penny pinching these days just like anyone else and asking questions. Hindsight is 20/20 and I dont want to waste much more time and or money. Im looking to just begin trading and trying to open up avenues for business grow when that happens. Thanks for the time.

Eeeek. Is this Plot.ly really worth the pricefor charting for quant trading HFT platforms?
From my Facebook user:
No support for .NET but Matlab and REST support:
This looks like a decent charting package but when I saw the pricing, I had a heart attack:
Funny how you knock multicharts for the steep price but don’t see the irony of the pricing for your own premium membership.
Does Multicharts do live webinar sessions, offer end to end source code solutions, dozens hours of code walkthrough, enterprise ready software solutions? I could go on.

Is C++ and R the future development stack for high frequency trading platforms aka HFT?
possibly, if there’s a strong emphasis on math and programming during the major, or if you plan on doing a MBA or PHD in a mathematical field. I majored in Finance&Economics and Applied Mathematics (I had no social life for 4 years lol) but we were lucky enough to learn statistical modeling at a pretty young age with R and if you can take some courses in C++ at college because I had to teach myself after graduation, and it wasn’t fun. XD
The above is from:
As I say, the combination of C++ and R could be the future of high frequency trading platforms. Our new platform is based on this.
