I created this general question so that we can just close any future "is language blah used in finance".

comment Is F# used in trading systems?
What is the point of these language questions? The answer is going to be almost always the same: a few places probably use them, but C/C++/Java dominate on the whole.

comment How to make sense of VXX and the people who bought it?
Stylistically, questions should read more like something you would see on wikipedia than in an old AOL chat room (e.g. one question mark is sufficient to denote a question).

comment Categories of systematic trading strategies?
If you have questions about specific sub-areas, ask that question separately. I edited your question down to a pretty basic level. Chris has already supplied a good answer. As per @Michael's link above: specific questions about strategies can be considered off-topic unless they can be asked in a general way.

comment Categories of systematic trading strategies?
@Michael I don't know what to do with this question: it seems so wrong on so many levels based on being (a) too introductory and (b) asking about specific strategy development, but on the other hand it does seem like there should be a correct answer (i.e. there are families of quantitative trading strategies: just ask any fund-of-fund's analyst for a set of definitions, and there will be general agreement). @Terco: Please try to rephrase your question to be more general and objective, or else I might edit it for you. :)

comment How significant is slippage in a successful quant fund?
IMO, this question is impossible to answer. There is no "typical" amount, certainly not that anyone here could address. Please try rephrasing it in terms like "how important is slippage in [specific area] quantitative equity trading and what techniques are used to address it?"

I think that this question is basically impossible to answer and so I'm voting to close. I particularly take issue with the concept of "street cred". Raised on meta: meta.quant.stackexchange.com/questions/54/…

I just think that it's something visual which can be understood easily, which is why I provided it.
