  1. I would like to buy a new computer but they all have windows xp installed. My two brokers are IB and Manfinancial( j-trader).Neither broker indicates that windows xp meets the trading system requirements. Is anyone using windows XP to trade with these brokers?? Thank you

    Windows XP will be fine.

    In Win XP, you can run a program in compatibility mode. That is, you can right click on the program, click on properties, and then click on the compatibility tab.

    You then have the option to select the operating system that the program ran correctly under (assuming that you are experiencing problems in WIN XP).

    Hope this helps!
