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.

F# looks like a .net solution for python. Python is a big player and F# can be.
Python is still in use in the finance business. F# runs in the CIL same as C#.

No and NO.

Microsoft supports python and F#. If you want you can compile python code into windows binaries in Visual studio now. We also are growing our support within Visual studio for python and adding more data science tools that support both F# and python. Python Tools for Visual Studio

F# is NOT a .NET solution for python. We will continue to support both and we are focusing on improving our support for F# + C# across all platforms (Linux, Mac , etc.. )... I will say that F# performance is very impressive, recent versions are as good as native code in some cases. Although often performance really depends more on the developer than the language.

Internally however the data science guys seem to favor R for most stuff.

Oh and if it isn't obvious .. I work for Microsoft, although my opinions are my own, not those of my employer
