Trading Desk

By maxpowers410 ·
Hi guys. Im getting into forex trading and want to set up a decent trading desk. Maybe someone has some experience or ideas?
Im thinking of getting a router with 2 WAN Ports and a UMTS Card slot. I would have ADSL and ISDN, and if all that where to fall out it would auto switch to UMTS.

Now PC HW. We want 2 computers running/mirroring constantly. If one dies the we should be able to continue working on the other straight away.
Im not sure how I should do this, I WAS thinking of setting up a small server rack with 2 or 3 old servers in it, and Ubuntu, XEN and Ganeti, then just run 2 VMWares running and access them with some sort of a thin client...

Would appreciate any ideas on all of this!!

Thanks a mil guys!

Try reposting this using the 'Ask a Question' button. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the two forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Questions' than here in 'Discussions'.

Additional benefits to the membership include:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The TR search function makes it difficult to find a particular "Discussion" or "Question" if it has not had a recent post; the two types get mingled in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.
