    I just brought me a new apple mac and I can't find any trading platform that will work with my mac. The only way I see possible for any platform to work with it, is to purchase a software call virtual pc. Should I just purchase that or do anyone know a platform that will work for me?
     
  2. I use InvestorRT from www.linnsoft.com
    They produce their real time software
    in both Windows and Mac. They are good
    people and have a nice community of users.
    The software is solid on my OSX Panther.

    There aren't many choices for us Mac users
    for trading software. If you do end up trying
    Virtual PC with the Windows programs,
    let me (us) know how it goes. I've wondered
    about whether it would work well, given the
    fact that Virtual PC isn't very fast. It could
    slow the data down too much. But, like I said,
    I haven't tried it. Give IRT a try. It's very good.

    Interactive Brokers works well on Mac.
     
  4. Very happy you guys made the program
    cross platform with Java.
    I use the combo of the IB TWS and AutoTrader on my Mac. Works well.
