Network Versions

Upgrades to the NeuroShell Trader Power User and NeuroShell DayTrader Power User versions are available which allow the software to distribute the optimization processing of complex financial models over your local area network. The result is a significant decrease in the amount of time it takes to create and update trading models as market conditions change.

Let’s say your local network has three computers attached, a 12 core machine and two quad core machines. That is a total of 20 cores, all of which can be searching for your optimum trading model simultaneously. The faster computers will handle a higher share of the load. You have control over which of the computers on the network you want to participate, and which you do not want to participate.

Choose from three different network versions depending on the power and speed you require. For example, the NeuroShell Trader Home Network version can distribute optimization processing to up to three computers on your network (and even to multiple cores/threads on each of those computers). The three computers include the server computer where you are running NeuroShell Trader and two additional computers that act as clients to the server computer.

The NeuroShell Trader Office Network version can distribute optimization processing across ten different computers and to the multiple cores/threads on each of those computers.

The NeuroShell Trader Corporate Network version ramps up the power to a max of 25 computers.

The resultant speed increase is dependent on the speed of the processors and clock speed on all computers as well as the overhead of controlling, setup, and communication with each distributed thread. It is recommended that network optimization only be used on larger trading models that have a larger number of parameters and which take more than a minute or two to optimize on a single computer. Smaller trading models can optimize more slowly across a network due to the control, setup and communications overhead and might not utilize all the available processing cores if more cores are available than needed for genetic optimization of smaller models.

In order to purchase any of the network versions of NeuroShell Trader, you must already own either the NeuroShell Trader® Power User or NeuroShell DayTrader® Power User for the server computer. Prices for the network versions listed below are in addition to the purchase price of either the NeuroShell Trader® Power User or NeuroShell DayTrader® Power User.

NeuroShell Trader Home Network (up to 3 computers) Upgrade price from Power User: $995.00
NeuroShell Trader Office Network (up to 10 computers) Upgrade price from Power User: $2995.00
NeuroShell Trader Corporate Network (up to 25 computers) Upgrade price from Power User: $7,495.00

IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND DISCLAIMERS Investments and trading involve risks, including possible loss of principal and other losses. The Software is designed chiefly to provide tools with which you can learn to build your own systems applying artificial intelligence to the financial markets. The Software and the examples therein are not intended to be working trading systems. The Software is licensed to you with the understanding that Ward Systems Group is not engaged in rendering any investment or other professional advice. If investment or other professional advice is required, the services of a competent, licensed professional should be sought. No Ward Systems Group employee, agent or representative is authorized to provide any such advice of any nature whatever, and any such advice, if given, is in violation of Ward Systems Group policy, is unauthorized and may not be relied upon. The use of any trading system or strategy, including any system or strategy included as a sample in, or that is or was developed using, the Software, does not and cannot guarantee that you will make profits, increase profits or minimize losses. Any popular or other strategies or systems included in the Software are intended merely as examples of technical ideas that can be incorporated into a personally designed trading system. None is recommended. You must use your own judgment or consult a professional for advice on such matters. Additionally, trading results based upon hypothetical or historically-tested trading systems do not necessarily compare to results of actual trading. No hypothetical or historical trading record can completely account for the level of risk present in actual trading. Numerous factors relating to market conditions, human error, human/emotional reaction to losses during actual trading, and inherent limitations of certain hypothetical or historically-tested models can account for these differences. There is no guarantee that your hypothetical trading results, even if tested against historical data, will produce comparable actual trading results. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical or historically-tested performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading system or strategy. Also, you should be aware that certain commonly-used trading "jargon," including trading terms used in the Software, such as, for example, a "limited risk" position, should not be taken literally. For example, so-called "limited risk" positions in certain options trades are not in fact limited as may be expected. Again, with respect to matters such as these, a licensed professional should be consulted.
