I use a remote server to automate my trading, so I don’t need to look at screens all day.
But I do need something to monitor the server if required.
That’s why I got an XPS 13 to monitor it on-the-go, if needed.
But now everything has changed.
I found Remote Spark, an HTML5 remote desktop client.
I can now login to my server from any device – iPad, phone, Chromebook…
XPS 13 is now redundant.
An iPad is all I need.
I spent a lot of time and money on my computer setup:
I actually have two of those setups.
I thought I needed them because my trading requires a lot of RAM and processing power.
But I now discovered I actually don’t need those.
Recently, I started renting a powerful dedicated server for my trading.
It’s near my broker’s server in London, has more RAM and processing goodness than I could wish for, and it runs 24/7 without hiccups.
I then found I no longer needed my desktop, because I could just connect to my server remotely and do what I had to do.
So, right now I’m having fun managing all my trading using my XPS 13.
