How can I use Trading Station Desktop on a Mac?
There are several options which require a client to install the Windows OS. If you are willing, here are some options:
- VPS provided by FXCM
- Parallels from Parallels IP Holdings. This is 3rd party software which has associated costs. This is currently the most popular option for FXCM Mac users. It’s more flexible than Boot Camp because you can run both Windows and Mac OS at the same time, easily bouncing back and forth between programs on both operating systems.
- http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/overview.html from VMware Inc. This is the main competitor to Parallels and the feature set is similar.
- Boot Camp from Apple. It comes preinstalled on newer Mac computers and the end-user only needs to purchase a copy of Windows. This is the least expensive option but also the least flexible since you can only run one of either Mac OS or Windows OS at any given time; they won’t run simultaneously.
