Over the last two trading days, 10.6 has been freezing for 30 min or more while the market is open. After experimenting with the code of my main strategy, I found a math heavy function that, while really quite useful, I could modify around with a passable reduction in return.
This allowed me to run my strategy in eSignal 11 to bypass the latency issues, which hadn't worked before.
I have to say, eSignal 11 runs completely smoothly in contrast to the problems I just had with 10.6. I've got a duo core 64 bit machine with 6 gigs of RAM. And there actually is a lot I like about the look and feel of the new interface -- a lot of small intuitive things (option to hide all toolbars, sliders for colors, generally more responsive chart objects, tabbed pages) that counterbalance, for me, the collection of weird quirks we already mentioned.
Just running my strategy without freezing is paramount to me. That said, this is just a stop gap measure while I continue trading, as I no longer am confident that the price warrants the features.
