Very true. Matlab is not of much use for trading. The reason is getting attention is because it is a great tool for analysing and visualizing data that needs complex mathematical functions coz its easier to code them in matlab. It is usually used by people with Phd's in financial economics to test and build the models for their quant funds.Things like these: Volatility smile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and difficult to do with application programming languages.

R is an open source alternative to matlab and is being adopted by the finance industry widely these days. If you had to learn a software like this one I guess it would good to start with R. I too don't see much use for it in normal trading.
