Live trading – segmentation fault – fixed use Node 7.1.0

I’ve been using Node 7.6.0 for running Gekko since, well, for as long as I can remember. I did try 7.8.0 once and that did not end well for me. Anyway, to cut a long story short I have recently moved to Postgresql from SQLite (largely thanks to Gen and his crazy linux skills). Tonight I tried to push a gekko live for the first time with a Postgresql backend and bang: Segmentation Fault.

Now, it’s not clear to me why, but after 3 hours I thought why not try another Node version. So using NVM (nvm install 7.1.0) I quickly tested and was stunned to see it worked. I’ll be honest, I don’t know the root cause. But it works and to my knowledge there are no issues running Gekko running on 7.1.0 but maybe I’ll bump into something shortly.
