trading in the cloud

Would this be a good option to "host" my copy of NT and access it via something like an ipad or perhaps a chromebook? I know nothing about cloud computing or what the requirements might be for trading on the input device. Basically I am trying to see if I can get my trading truly location independent and be able to access my trading from any device anywhere.

AWS | Amazon WorkSpaces

No.

Look here from @sam028:

Or just do a search on futures.io (formerly BMT) for VPS.

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.
6)

I've been happyish with Speedy's computers. (1gig of ram with ninjatrader and my bad code is laughable)
Doing anything on the weekends is sloooooooooooooooooow given the servicing schedule.

Amazon now has a free tier here: AWS Free Usage Tier

Speedy at 60 bucks a month to start out is a low hurtle to jump though one might find other resources for less with a good search though customer service may vary.

I deal with AWS a lot, watch out for that free tier. It is given very low priority network/cpu wise. Basically built for developers to prototype.

I haven't used speedy's but if you're wanting to trade in the cloud definitely pick a host like that with servers near the exchanges. Basically a provider that understands the traders needs.
