I'm hearing more and more about this being used in finance here. Anyone else come across it in trading or pricing/modeling? It could use some proper numerics/stats libraries and a usable version of something like VSLab, but it is an interesting play by Microsoft.
I read a recent article about it and the support microsoft if throwing behind it.
I need to find a comparison of C# vs F#.

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

Its a different animal all together. Think Easylanguage vs. C++. At least one fund and one IB here are throwing a lot of resource at it as it is "functional" language that is supposed to be closer to how "idea" people think than "code" people think. In the first link is a video by a MS guy named Bolagnese which is eye opening on a few fronts.
I'm not an expert (yet) but I've been using F# for about a year. There are several good books out on F# already.
F# is what is known as a functional language like Ocaml (which is used almost exclusively by Jane Street Capital).
Functional programs are great for numeric analysis where say the output of a function / method becomes the input of the method through iterations. Every thing you can do in f# you can do in C#, it just might take 10x more code with a lot of inner sub loops.
