Optimization of trading algorithms.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello


This is a bit different of your usual applications, but the requirements are similar. I work with automated trading in volatile markets using use algorithms for trade. The way to test and improve this bots is run the algorithms over a historic data with a matrix of entries, compare results and set new entries again and again.

The newest platforms like MT5 already allow to use multiple core, than i have a server with 2X xeon quad core 2.66. But there are good bots on MT4 and this only use a single core.

So, what i need is a single core overclocked system to run so fast as possible. Just processor, 2Gb ram and a small hdd, don't need nothing more, even no graphic card or others drives because will work only by RDP.


I never did over clock, so i'm accepting suggestions smile.gif

thanks in advance

A 4670k is your best bet then, no need for an i7 as all it has over an i5 is 4 extra threads and slightly more L3 cache. AMD isnt too great for single core applications as of now.
