comment Means of inferring trading algorithms from competition trade data
I have the actual trades of the participants. And things aren't as simple as correlating bars to profits.

comment What programming languages are most commonly used in quantitative finance?
The great thing about F# as opposed to most other programming languages is that it's got a scripting interface (F# Interactive, fsi.exe). What this means is you can edit your code and see the results instantly. For example, I've got an editor that re-runs the script on any change. That way, I see errors and failing tests immediately.

comment Why is C++ still a very popular language in quantitative finance?
@Dan Does the Quant community use Clang, though? I had the impression that most stick to Microsoft C++. I'm an Intel C++ user myself, but am very tempted by C++ AMP.
