A few days ago I had the idea of using a tektonic virtual server (http://www.tektonic.net/virtual-servers.html) to run my FOREX trading scripts reliably. The advantages are obvious: I'd free myself from hardware maintenance and any fear of power shortages interfering with my trading.
It's only 15 dollars a month, and accessible by SSH. This would allow me to download reports and tweak my trading algorithms from my smartphone 24/7. But I will probably be doing this only once I achieve a profitable trading algorithm.
