Honest feedback for us HFT and quant wannabee newbies

Honest feedback for us HFT and quant wannabee newbies

 

From a newsletter subscriber:

 

Just some feedback.  I LOVE receiving your updates that outline what you are working on.

1) However, there is NEVER a link to the membership area either in your emails NOR on your site.  I ALWAYS have to look it up, which is extremely frustrating.

2) I also HATE you pop-up on the site.  I have dual wide-screen screens and I have to go ‘full-screen’ to close your pop up.  I would think you would be able to install a cookie that would recognize people who have viewed your site and NOT continually pop up.

3) the organization of your material is frustrating.  I would think you would have a better method of organizing it.  When I have to scroll around, it makes things frustrating.

 

Just some loving feedback.  Hopefully not offensive to you.

 

My answer:

 

You are absolutely correct on your views. I appreciate that. The site sections will be massively revamped in coming weeks to address everything you mention. It  will be more unified and simpler. Thanks again

A new C++automated trading platform is about to be born written by little old me the quant wannabee

A new C++automated trading platform is about to be born written by little old me the quant wannabee

I am about to develop a complete end to end automated trading platform completely in C++

Here is the workflow:

1. Listen CSV tick flat file

2. Feed each tick into a code generated Simulink model trading strategy (in C++)

3. Use Simulink model for order execution from trading strategy which interfaces with INteractive Brokers TWS client

A few notes:

I thought this was going to be in C# but all the working components ending up working in C++.
