I asked this same question when I wanted to start developing strategies and indicators. I thought: why go with procedural languages at all when I'm very well versed in object oriented languages?

I've developed code for 15+ years using a variety of languages: c/c++/java/php, etc. When it comes to strategy and indicator building for trading systems, I have not found any advantages an object oriented language has. Strategy and indicator building is functional and rule driven where polymorphism, encapsulation, function overriding and all that OO stuff gets in the way more than it actually helps. The only thing I find of some use is namespaces and that is purely for organizational purposes.
