I have been trading for decades, and I have a solid knowledge of technical analysis but also VB as professional programmer.

I would like to start learning C++ from scratch, then specialised in C++ for quant. trading

Any hint about where to start from please ?

  • Learning C++ just enough to move to quant trading
  • Learning C++ for quant trading

Think in C++ can be a starting point. This is free. And, you might study Beginning Visual C++ 2010 by Ivan Horton

Quantitative finance and C++ (if you are derivatives-oriented)

You might find Mark Joshi as well as Daniel Duffy's writings of (great) interest. It is easy to find the references of both their books on a website such as Amazon. You can also visit Mark Joshi's website, and Daniel Duffy's one.
