Anyone successfully running Fidelity Active Trader Pro on the new M1 MacBook Pro?
Active Trader Pro runs like trash on my M1 Air, sits somewhere between 100-250% CPU usage and is unusably laggy.
Will-do. I rarely read this forum anymore, I was Googling to see if anyone else was having issues with it and happened upon the thread since it is the top result.
I run two charts with a few indicators, two option chains with a few strikes, and a positions list. Nothing crazy, so it is unfortunate.
That's great news. I appreciate you indulging my request. Thank you!!!I installed Think or Swim and ran it though I didn't place any trades.
Same with Active Trader Pro.
The M1 MBA is a fantastic machine. We've had it for two days but this is the first time I've used it.
Big Sure rearranged all of the settings icons so I had to hunt for settings.
Why not buy a lightly used MBP16 from someone switching to an M1 Mac?I had a look at the MBP 16 and, realistically, the best option to run my programs when mobile is the Dell XPS 17 with 4k screen and 11th gen Intel CPU. I priced one out and it's within spitting distance of the 2019 MacBook Pro 16. The MBP 16 would benefit greatly from an upgrade to Intel's 11th gen CPUs. There's quite a difference between 9th gen and 11th gen in terms of thermals.
I don't want to run all of my other stuff on Windows though.
This is very discouraging to me. I was looking forward to the 16" MBP with the M-1, but I need it to run ToS at least as responsively as it does on Intel. This is an essential program for me. I have already given up on Fidelity's Active Trader Pro because that barely runs even on the Intel based Macs.I just tried out Think or Swim with my production environment on my M1 mini. It is significantly slower than on my Intel Windows system. This is a bit of a surprise as the Geekbench 5 multicore score is only about 15% higher on my Windows box and the M1 single-core score is much, much higher than on my Windows system. I will continue to run Think or Swim on Windows. I did some searching and found forum comments that it runs in Rosetta 2.

I run ATP on my Trash Can running 10.14.6 and its quite stable, I do have a ton of RAM tho
