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#.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

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 think it's mostly a question of pitch between these two notes

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#.

Causality is the relationship between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is a consequence of the first.

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.

Thanks Devon. Have you come across any decent numerical or stats libraries for F#? Some of the books by the Flying Frog guy seem pretty good and are on my Christmas list.

I'd love to see a simple example of something in F# if you have the time.
