Re: Start your own trading business ideas

I am a geeky programming type. But I am still very green on my training wheels as far as trading goes. Am I any good to you ? I will be interested in very fast results. After my last job/association with a trader, I have no interest in shooting in the dark for more than a couple of months.

Not if it involves my paying money up front. For me to put in my money, I need to see the beef first.

No need to send any money - will PM you - more of a joint effort costing as little time and money as possible

Re: Start your own trading business ideas

Pat494 started this thread Yes well that idea bit the "dust ".
Pity but then trying is the thing !

Another idea is say you live in a town called X
Well, get anyone interested ( not the violent troublemaker sort ) and start a club called "Friends of X " or something along those lines. Then do things that attract welcome interest to that town. Have a town X ragtime band for instance. Anyone who can play an instrument, even dustbin lids can join. Then parade around the town on occasions "playing " music.
Pally up with local schools, cadets, council, etc. to do things of interest !!
Especially good for unemployed, pensioners etc. Meet lots of people you never knew existed etc.

That's a really weird trading idea Pat.

Re: Start your own trading business ideas

Pat494 started this thread I have been thinking along the lines of whether or not to have a trading partner actually in the same room.
Very often an alternative viewpoint is beneficial and it would probably help reinforce "good practices".
The problem of living in a country area would be finding someone tho ! Whether to
1. offer a sort of job to a youngster
2. Try and get a local friend to participate and risk losing said friend
3. or what

Any views ?

Its not something I'd particularly want to do, I even find participating in trading chat rooms quite problematic. Its pricesely because the final succes or failure is down to me alone that I find trading so rewarding. I dont even want to hear the opinions of traders that I socialise with. I just find its noise that I dont need.

Despite being quite confident in my own abilities, I've always found in the past that when I made money working as part of a management team, there was always that nagging doubt in the back of my mind if the success really was down to me, or perhaps due to other team members. Trading stips all of that uncertainty away, and it intensifies the highs and lows in a way that I find particularly satisfying.

I supose you could argue that I might make more by partnering with others, and whilst that's certainly true, I'm not sure I'd like to lose that absolute certainty that the outcome of any particular years results is entirely due to my skill, and/or luck, rather than someone elses.
