@serac Have you tried F#?

No, I haven't. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm not much of a programmer, necessarily. Programming is more of just a tool.

I'll look into F#. Looks interesting.

I'm not either. I remember reading about it last year, but I never got around to to do anything with it. I've been investigating it further during the last couple of days, and I must say that it looks interesting. Due do its interoperability with MATLAB/Mathematica and integration in .NET, it seems like an interesting addition. As it is a compiled language, it should perform a lot better. Parallelism is also very interesting.

I don't know enough about it yet, but I find it quite interesting thus far...

In your opinion, is Matlab the most powerful/flexible data analysis and algorithm development tool?

I'm just starting out in algorithm development, I want to start w/ a platform that is powerful/flexible enough to meet any needs that I'm likely to have in the future, even if I get very advanced. This way I don't waste time by learning one system, then having to start from scratch learning an entirely different system when I outgrow the first system.

One key feature that I'm hoping to find is the ability to stream realtime data into the analysis algorithm, to automatically modify the algorithm in real time. An algorithm that learns, like a neural network.

Does it sound like I'm on the right track?

Any info is much appreciated


Matlab is not the most suitable Software for the stocks data analysis, in the first place. as it was not written for that thing keeping in mind ..
Once i was told , if you have good domain knowledge only then you can produce good software / algorithm to harness its true power..
If you are a driver, only then you need the rear view mirror. otherwise you can drag the vehicle every where , there is no need of mirrors.

--Only domain/market knowledge will help you create wonders--
