At The Close by Wallace Wang
It can be done, and hereís how.
It's a fact of modern-day life
that no matter what kind of computer you use today, youíre
going to have to replace it tomorrow.
Most traders these days are
probably using Windows XP, but
if you are using a computer with the
Vista operating system (OS), you
may find that some trading software
may not run the way it should.
Thatís because it will take time for all
trading software to make the transition.
In case of such an event, you may want to
consider keeping your current computer for
trading and get a second, more modern computer
for activities like organizing digital photographs
and browsing the Internet. Or rather than
use two separate computers, consider the alternative,
and thatís switching from a Windows machine to
an Apple Macintosh computer.
Although trading programs for Windows far outnumber
trading programs for the Macintosh, you can still use a Mac
for trading and technical analysis. In fact, the transition from
the Windows OS to a Macintosh may be far easier, and more
cost-effective, than you might think.
If you already have a Macintosh or are thinking about buying
one, rest assured you can find plenty of trading software for
the Mac thatís comparable to the most popular programs that
only run on Windows. Even better, most comparable
Macintosh trading programs cost only a fraction of their
Windows counterparts while offering many of the same
features. Hereís a look at a few of them.
