Hi All

I would like learn C++ from scratch, no other programming experience. I have extensive financial planning background (economics, financial markets, managed investments, banking, financial analysis using Excel, and a bit of options trading experience, etc). Used to be good at maths during my early days.

I would like to use C++ for High Frequency Trading but I have no idea where to start.

Timewise - I have about 12 months or so to be compete in C++, not necessarily an expert. Prefer to do it part time, I have about 4 or so hours a day. Budget is flexible, happy to look at all options. Still go a few brain cells left, age on the other side of 40.

I just don't know where to start, colleges, books/materials, ideas!!! ideas!!! please.

Thanks for your help
