comment Why is C++ still a very popular language in quantitative finance?
I think he mainly posted the link here ( hackerne.ws/item?id=2934042) Interesting discussions there over this weekend. I guess chrisaycock was interested in this question after all.

comment How many explanatory variables is too many?
I am not the person who downvoted this question, but I am puzzled at your statement. Why should we find a dummy variable when we have multicollinearity in a model? Under what conditions?

I did read those parts of answers but I wanted to clarify or dig into more details. I think I got what I wanted so don't have any objection to close.

comment Why is C++ still a very popular language in quantitative finance?
Thanks for your answer. Indeed, I didn't know there is still that much difference in performance. Then, I guess it's obvious to use C++ for especially QF systems.
