Welcome to

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.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I agree with BigMike. I've been a *nix server admin for years, but some issue with Ubuntu/Linux desktops or an application always makes me go back to using Windows.

Though I'm not trading live right now, I will probably always use a native (no virtualization) Windows 7 or Server 2008 environment for live trading. I've always hated XP and Server 2003 so I'm very glad the latest versions are much better.

Now for development I can see a great benefit of separating environments using virtualization. For example, only browsing in a "clean install" Mac OS X environment while using Parallels virtualization to develop in separate Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux installations. For example, maybe a beta version of an app is released, I can try it out without risking problems to my "production" development environment.

Started thinking about creating a linux cluster, running vmware in it and then NT. Lots of layers but, that way one possibly could get NT in a cluster for analysis and backtesting.

Might give it a try at some point. Or anyone tried it already?

Running NT under VMWare works fine, I've done it for years. But if you mean a real compute cluster, where CPU calculations are being spread across multiple physical machines and you are running a single instance of an application --- good luck


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Hmm... yeah, thats right, NT is a single thread and process so wouldnt get it distributed in a cluster like I have been doing with other applications in an OpenSSI cluster.
