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.


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.

That will work.
But I've just tested the connection time from my 3G Android phone to my own VPS in New Jersey, and it took around 10 seconds. That's slower than just turn around, but fast enough in most cases.



Sounds great, thanks for the info.

I begin a trail period with Speedy for one main reason that I use a MacBook Pro. For the past two years have used VMWare fusion and although it works Windows is a resource and temperature hog.

I also travel over the US using a Verizon Jetpack ISP and I believe a VPN would secure better trading in remote areas.

So far I love the customer service by Sam and first day trading has been successful. I will update next week after Labor day and more volume enters the market.

@Chris Tina,

I'll love to follow your update on the MacBook/VPS experience 'cos I use MacBook machines only (no Windows), and I've been on MacBook/VWWare-Windows for five years now. I had a few days of demo(which is not enough for me to form an objective opinion) on Sam's VPS sometime ago, using my MacBook.

Todays volume is pathetic so I will wait till next week to make judgement on Speedy latency, delay, etc. Although as a MacBook user I love it. I work on a 2010 mid year MacBook Pro OS X v10.9.4 with 2.66 GHz i7 and 8 GB DDR3 ram.

When I am using VMware fusion I provided 2 of the 4 cores and half my ram along with twice as much hard drive space as used in Windows.

Based on the specs above when I was using VMware my MacBook would run much hotter and eat up tons of resources and memory.

Temp: VMware 157 degrees vs Speedy 137 degrees
Memory: VMware 66% vs. 13% usage

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
Second day trading and volume still very low. I have had issues with Google Chrome crashing also had Tradestation freeze on Friday afternoon and now this morning. Waiting for reply from Sam.

Outside of the freezing issues I love the speed and VPN aspect instead of VMware, but very concerned this freezing is becoming a issue.

Sam's customer service is AMAZING...he immediately replied, reviewed and discovered it was a swap memory bad configuration.

So far I would recommend anyone interested at least test the free week trial.

@ChrisTinaBruce,

Did the "swap memory bad configuration" cause the Google Chrome freeze on your MacBook ?

The freeze of Chrome was on the VPS and not on the MacBook, so was the swap bad configuration.

Since I recently changed browser from IE to Chrome, I noticed that Chrome is pretty much of a memory hog...i.e. if I don't close futures.io (formerly BMT) from time to time, Chrome will use a whoppy gig of memory on a single task without a 'problem'.

@sam028: Knowing well that this is no VPS related question, anyone has a take on why this happens and what to do against this ?

Sounds dodgy, I run Chrome extensively and don't see more than c90k plus a couple of much smaller attached processes.

What other channels are you watching?

Travel Well
