Has anyone here traded with a netbook?
Is it be possible to install software on it?
If it is then could be possible.
I need a laptop to make speed changing from software to software during a trading day.
Best of luck.
Though nothing to do with it.
What do you think? Livermore used to trade on telegraph.
But he didn't trade with IB or Tradestation, did he?
That's basically my question.
Theoretically one may be able to load software, but I am wondering if anyone has been able to actually trade without problems.
I've traded with IB/TWS and remote desktop on a netbook many times. Works well, but is not perfect.
TWS has a few dialogs that a bigger than the screen, so you better know your keyboard shortcuts.
why would anyone want to trade on a netbook? are you stupid?
Son, it's a simple question.
If you don't know, or don't care, don't answer.
Please, keep the smartass counterquestions to yourself.
Thanks. That's basically what I thought/feared.
I did some automated trading on a net book. In particular, on an Acer Aspire One while I was away from my regular trading turret. It worked okay, with my trading system netting a profit.
Concerning dialogs that extend off the screen, get a copy of a shareware program called ShoveIt. It shoves the dialog onto the screen, so that you can click yes/no or whatever is necessary to close the dialog pop-up.
