Testing Julia for Predictive Engines, An early opinion

The programming language chosen for predictive trading systems depends on where you are in life cycle. If you want to produce code to validate ideas then the fewest lines of code to produce a working system tends to favor languages like F#, Python and Julia. Even for early ideas you sometimes have to deal with considerable data volumes so you still need reasonable speed.     If you are coding for live operations where speed is essential then C/C++ are the best choice especially when unplanned pauses from Garbage collectors are unacceptable.    Julia is a new language designed for speed in critical areas.  It isn’t perfect but overall I am impressed.
