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.

Just replace your sata/ide disk drive by a ssd drive, you'll see the difference (my pc is ready after 20-25 seconds, vs 7-8 minutes before, with sata software Raid).

Depending on the operating system & what's running on the computer garbage collection may be an issue after a while.

2 computers here are online constantly, both Windows 7, 1 running nothing but NT/IB and a PHP program for data collection (IB has the simple "always up" mod to the config file to override the autologoff "feature") and the other running a file/web server with a database, backup program, anti-virus and a few other apps. The file server would use memory until it grinds to a halt--perhaps one of the apps has a memory leak--so I use 3rd party freeware (Minimem) to pick up where Windows' garbage collection leaves off. Even so it seems necessary to reboot both computers once in a while to "shake the bugs out".

My machine is always running (except when I give it a break in a fortnight or so). I have heard from my IT friends that machine has a better life if it runs for long time and have experienced the same.

I do close my platform though for security reasons. Till now no issues, except getting good trade each morning. Patience is required anyways!

Replace Kaskpersky with NOD 32 and your system will run twice as fast!
