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 64 bit or later, MAC OSX, Linux
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.
To run on M1 or M2 MAC processors SQX requires Rosetta add-on for MAC OSX. If not already installed it will be prompted during the first run on your MAC
