Thanks, Pistol!

That's indeed an interesting solution. Preferrably, we wouldn't have to worry about crashes, but regardless of that one should always have some kind of backup.

I'm curious though - how often do you run into trouble?

I have not noticed any problems on my end these last two weeks. But, it seems like what you're doing is far more computationally intensive than what I'm doing, although I have multiple tick charts and a few (custom) indicators.

Hi LaissezFaire,

NT8 goes down sometimes twice a day. I cant really blame the software because its getting pushed beyond its limits. I run 5 x 29" monitors with 2 active charts on each with a few more charts off-screen for various markets. The charts are quite heavy with multiple indicators, strategies, market analysers and with constant testing too.

I'm considering the purchase of another system and run them side by side to split the workload.
