If you don't have laptop, when traveling around countries? How to run Trading apps

  1. Hi,

    I think title of thread tells everything. If i want to run full version of IB TWS or Tradestation, without having to download it on someones desktop and extracting it.

    I know you can't install them on external drive and run it from there .. is there a way around it ? Thanks.

    Complex fix. Buy a laptop.

    Rent a VPS and install it there. Log into VPS from remote computer and do your thing. Speedytradingservers dot com (no affiliation) or simply an AWS/Google Cloud instance should work, as long as you have a good ping to whatever server you are using.

    Even better: don't trade while traveling.

    When working a regular job one also takes time off during traveling. I never understood why these questions get asked, are some really that addicted that they go nuts when they can not check the markets for a few days ..

    There's also Windows on a USB stick and PC on a USB stick where you can "side load" TWS.
