c++ for trading systems development
anyone here can point me to tutorials/info on c++ as a tool for development in trading systems?
I don't know if you'll find any tutorials as such, but I've written some open source software in C++ that implements the FIX protocol which is the de-facto standard for trading systems, particularly in the U.S.
There may be an XML standard to replace FIX by now. Last I coded in finance, this was getting some hype. But odds are, it was just hype (like XML itself)
Well ISO 15022 was supposed to replace all standards and as of yet it just hasn't taken off at all (there was huge buzz around this two years ago). FIXML has been around for years, but also hasn't made much headway except for internal use and batch processing.
oren, tom and bella, thanks for the responses :)
