Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I asked this same question when I wanted to start developing strategies and indicators. I thought: why go with procedural languages at all when I'm very well versed in object oriented languages?

I've developed code for 15+ years using a variety of languages: c/c++/java/php, etc. When it comes to strategy and indicator building for trading systems, I have not found any advantages an object oriented language has. Strategy and indicator building is functional and rule driven where polymorphism, encapsulation, function overriding and all that OO stuff gets in the way more than it actually helps. The only thing I find of some use is namespaces and that is purely for organizational purposes.
