Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

I've got Sierra on my iMac with Parallels (Win 7) and it's been pretty flawless. It was like $99.
Fast as hell and easy to flip over to the Mac side with the 4 finger swipe.

Don't spend anything. Install WineBottler. I have tried VMWare, which was slow/laggy in general with windows 10. Sierra chart works flawlessly under wine with no slowdown. You need to install two packages with it (listed on SierraChart site). I have a 2014 retina MacBook Pro and honestly I couldn't be happier, I was going to buy a new windows laptop but this works flawlessly, though I only use for charting and not trading (the data feed is connected). With VMWare it worked but I have problems with a) scaling/type text clarity b) laggy c) the constant fan noise annoyed me. William.

I have MT4 on my mac using Wine and it works flawlessly. It's just a colossal pain in the @ in the beginning. But it works great once you finish.

Thanks for the tip, installed WineBottler+SC a few days ago and this is looking very good so far!

(Oh works fine in VMWare as well of course)
