Thanx for shaing. Optionworkshop looks interesting. How much is the s/w subscription?
I don't have IB. They seem to suggest CQG in their documentation. Is there extra fees for data?
I'm a new RTT trader and have been using ONE for analysis but have been having trouble with the colors of the T+ lines and distinguishing between sets of them when doing adjustment modeling, due to the closeness of the lines. I've been thinking about switching to OV because of these issues and because both Tom and Dan's work is all in OV. But, I'm concerned in reading this thread as I also would be using OV with TOS and my computer is not as powerful as Scott's, although it's a PC laptop, not a Mac. Mine has an Intel Core i3 2.40 GHZ cpu and 4 GB of memory, running under Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. Am I likely to have these communication, lost keystroke problems?
Thanks for the post, Scott. I'm going to check the OV hardware requirements. I suppose if I have to get a new laptop, I can. There is a lot to like about ONE. It is simple and easy to use. They are very quick to answer questions both by email or their chat window. Nicolas Bender, in support, is very helpful. I have some color blindness and am having trouble with their T+ lines which are in pastel colors. I'm waiting to hear if they can be changed (I don't think so). It would be helpful if they used dashed lines like OV, but they don't. Also, when doing adjustment modeling, at least with butterflies, the two sets of T+ lines are bunched together at the bottom of the risk graph and are hard (for me) to tell apart. I don't think the risk graph can be stretched vertically (again, waiting to hear but I don't think so). Just some things for you to look for in August.
