Re: Computer Configuration for Trading

Svyatoslav: Thanks for the prompt reply! I will keep what I have. 

I currently have 32G of Ram..would there be any advantage to doubling it or would BM not need or take advantage of it?

Tx Tom B.

Re: Computer Configuration for Trading

Update: I have used my new computer for a week. It has made a substantial improvement. Most of the time my occasional latency thru Rithmic API hits 0.7 sec which is entirely acceptable. When things are volatile, I do see occasional spikes in CPU up to 75% in BM - but it is momentary. The graphics ar...

Re: trading both live and sim at same time

+1. Ability to toggle between Real & Simulated would be a terrific enhancement. I would really like to practice on different markets/timeframes while trading Real on potentially one market or be able to switch markets between Real and simulated during the session. Possibly a window could pop up like...

Re: Computer Configuration for Trading

HI: After significant testing and numerous adjustments to BM and my 2012 8 yr old setup which was a I-7 - 4 Core 3.4 Ghz and 32G Ram SSD, etc. connected through Rithmic API, I decided to upgrade. I know that technology is constantly moving forward and with the next generation of processors CPU/GPU o...

Re: Computer Configuration for Trading

I have been switching different components on/off. The correlation tracker seems to double the CPU usage from about 18% to 36-40% and contributes to the jerky graphics more than anything else. Tom

Re: Computer Configuration for Trading

Ok..now will SI 3.0 work with 7.0? I will swap them out for tomorrow. The jerkiness happens with auto recenter or none. I am not interacting with it. It is not constant. I did try turning GPU acceleration off and it was more jerky and the CPU usage went up so I turned it back on. If I get the graphi...

Re: Computer Configuration for Trading

Svyatoslav: I only do reset on market open. The jerkiness is also happening during regular market when it is active - but not fast. I am watching the memory usage in performance tab but I also see the memory usage in BM and it climbs steadily throughout the session. I am still getting graphics error...
