do you have allready eny data loaded from the exchanges?

have you downloaded a huge data base file and placed manually in:

is the gekko backtest working?

-->try download data with gekko --ui /importer
then run gekko backtest to see if it works so far

i have two win7 and a raspberry pi
for the backtest machine i use the win7/i7quad
the live bots running on raspberry pi

i guess You could run a backtest while a live gekko is running but... maybe thats not a fair thing to do so
the raspberry is very nice as a headless server. usd 50.-(incl. highspeed SD-card)
