Well you've got quite a mix there. TCP and UDP are very low level packet-based protocols, while the other three are much higher up the food chain (and may indeed run over either of the first two; I don't know). From what I can see FAST is an extension of FIX, and I've never heard of HSVF.
I suspect your choice will depend very much on what it is you want to do, and who/what you need to talk to, so without quite a bit more information it's very difficult to suggest which one is "best".
Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

Thank you Winston,
Basically I am in process of finalizing a protocol for Trading application which would run on different platforms like ipad,mobile and internet.
The protocol should work effectively on all these platforms.
