Which programming language is best for quant trading and HFT

Hi there
I am really get tired of this agruement regarding which programming language is best for quant trading and building financial models. As a result, I created a video on this:

Youtube video on Which programming language for quant finance c++ r matlab python dotnet with potential HFT?

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/06/youtube-video-on-which-programming-language-for-quant-finance-c-r-matlab-python-dotnet-with-potential-hft/

Need FREE open source trading documentation like Tradelink:

Where to learn more with documentation about Trdelink FREE open source DOTNET CSharp trading platform with potential HFT

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/06/where-to-learn-more-with-documentation-about-trdelink-free-open-source-dotnet-csharp-trading-platform-with-potential-hft/

Also, there is an awesome document floating on the internet.so I posted my thoughts on this:

Who knew Max Dama would be put out a book on Automated Trading? Use Matlab or Excel as well

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/05/who-knew-max-dama-would-be-put-out-a-book-on-automated-trading-use-matlab-or-excel-as-well/

This written by Max Dama so if you want to read a great PDF, this is it.

Finally, I am pretty close to completing my NEW quant school. I will be putting some really really affordable deals for those interested so watch your mail inbox.

Why waste your time hand coding your strategy or model for your HFT trading platform’s native programming language?

Why waste your time hand coding your strategy or model for your HFT trading platform’s native programming language?

Once again, I am learning how people are hand coding their strategies in their platforms native language like C++, Java or C#. Why would you do that? That is why I am trying to use ways to bridge code from either proven prototyping products or statistical tools. If you want to waste your time hand coding an unproven strategy, go for it. I won’t stop you but it could lead you down the wrong path. In some cases years, or other cases dozens of programmers who get fired due to some guys vision of his potentially unprofitable strategy. Believe me, I have seen it. It isn’t pretty especially when it involves a spouse!  Anyhoo…. I have got two options at my disposal to alleviate this dilemma with my new HFT platform. Don’t ask me about it ’cause I am not going to tell you. You have two choices to follow on this:

1. Search and search and search my blog or anywhere else online. Good luck! Or follow me via my email list or Linked In to get an idea.

2. OR…join my QuantLabs.net Premium membership now to save the time and maybe even your relationship.  Sacrifices may need to be made if you believe in what you believe.

The choice is yours.

Java, there are very nice IDEs and OS independent. Most importantly, it is all free.

Quant development: Any opinions on what programming language to use when developing a trading system?

Any opinions on what programming language to use when developing a trading system?

—-

I was asking myself the same question while looking for Trading platform. I’m in favor somehow for C# because it is really open for your own development and you can somehow put old C or C++ code in a kind of wrapper to support it. If you don’t have already a trading platform, take a look at Ninjatrader or WealthLab which made the transition to support C# in the past. I would not recommend to start with a proprietary language like EasyLanguage (Tradestation) because it is not really open for future developments -that’s my personal opinion.

We are in the same boat. I can confirm big wigs like Ernest Chan uses Matlab for research using C++/C# Interactive Broker API. We are probably going the same route as most large firms use this combination with an Excel front end.
