StrategyQuant is not an EA, it is a normal program (EXE file) for Microsoft Windows and it will run on all standard computers with Internet connection.
Minimum system requirements:
- 2 GHz processor 2 cores
- 8 GB RAM
- 10 GB hard disk space
- Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 64-bit operating system
Strategy generation and backtesting requires a lot of processing power, so the faster computer you have, the more strategies will be generated and tested.
The most important component that affects the speed of testing is processor (CPU). StrategyQuant can use all processor cores, so the best results will be achieved by using multi-core processor, such as i5 or i7 or AMD.

Please add ‘Linux’ under supported Operating Systems.
And maybe advantages / disadvantages compared to Windows.
Yes, thanks. You can install SQX on Linux. Please download the latest version from this page https://strategyquant.com/download/
Is grid feature already implemented (up and running properly) so one can use a few of his / her computers to speed up the process of strategies generation ?
