Welcome back to our series on Setting up Your Live Algorithmic Trading Environment from Scratch! In this fifth video of the series, we'll be walking you through the process of creating SWAP space on your virtual machine (VM) instance.

SWAP space is a crucial component of any algorithmic trading environment, as it provides an additional buffer for your system's memory, which can help improve performance and prevent crashes during periods of high demand.

In this video, we'll cover the steps required to create SWAP space on your VM instance, including how to determine the appropriate size for your system and how to configure your settings for optimal performance.

By the end of this video, you'll have a solid understanding of how SWAP space works and how to set it up for your algorithmic trading environment.
