Two MotiveWave Workspaces on a Mac

I just discovered that Mac MotiveWave users can run two separate Workspaces at the same time.

This is incredible because I want to run a custom algo at the same time as I trade manually, but the problem lies in that the two separate brokers use the same label for the symbol.

With two separate Workspaces, the conflict is solved!

How to run two MotiveWave Workspaces (Mac only):

1) Open Terminal

2) Type: open -n -a motivewave

You will have to repeat this process each time you want to run a 2nd Workspace.
