comment Why is C++ still a very popular language in quantitative finance?
@Dmitri Nesteruk Right. I was just wondering, if this argument counts pro or against C++? Since to interface a library API is easy and recommended - from within almost every language?

@Dmitri Nesteruk 'in C++ you can explicitly use SSE' yes but you wouldn't really often, right? You would rely on the compiler to do so for you. And this is, what the Java user does.

I wonder how to define "average-quality". Is this on a subjective scale, taking into account personal bias?

@user1194505 You should REuse them. Pooling is more efficient than REallocating. Especially for large(st) arrays.

comment How good is managed code for algo trading?
IMO you sound a little too pessimistic regarding .NET. After all, it is just a matter of utilizing 'your' language the right way. A poor written C++ app will be magnitudes slower than a well written C# app and the other way around. By following the common guidelines for writing .NET applications you will get a reasonable speed for .NET already. For peak performance, higher knowledge is needed on both platforms though.

very interesting view. Even if somehow... well: subjective ;) You obviously spend much more time on C/C++ then you did on C#. And this is no critism. But it could explain your bias towards C. I remember every language at the beginning seemed to be build out of "counterintuitive rules".. ;)
