Is there any reason why 2+ separate strategies cannot run simultaneously or on separate computers? I've been unable to produce order from 2+ activated strategies, and have yet to have a separate computer run separate strategies (in an attempt to work around reoccurring incidents of frozen operation).

Thanks folks.

Your question is too ambiguous. Short answer: of course multiple strategies can be run on two PCs and even in one WL8 on a single PC.

Can you be specific about the problem you're having as your question does not contain any helpful clues at all? What WL tool is this, what strategies exactly, what means "unable to produce order", is there a broker provider involved, how is everything configured etc? Thanks.

For example, the TD Ameritrade’s API won’t allow simultaneous connections. On the contrary, you could connect to the same IB TWS instance from multiple computers by configuring a different client ID for each WL connection.

Thank you Cone. This make sense to a non-coder like me. I'll see if I can produce a separate/additional Client ID in my TDA account to allow automated strategic trading on both of my computers.

Let us know if you find a way to make that work for TDA. Unfortunately, with only one set of log in credentials, I'm not sure that it's possible to create more Apps / Keys.

I think you are right about that but I'll let you know.

SO, does it mean that if I run 2 same strategies with 2 different configuration ( for instance 30 min and 5 min charts) , then there will be no problems and the strategy will not confuse or mix the orders? Am I Right?

It depends on the configuration of trading preferences and if the strategies are trading the same instruments from the same account. There are a lot of variables. If you're trading 2 strategies in 2 different accounts, then there's certainly no ambiguities.
