Fly on the Wall is good if you trade stocks. It will drive you crazy if you are trading indices as they talk all the time.
Thats just made my day as 75% of my trades are Indicies, it says forex but does it have an Indicies section or is it just basically if it said something like "Important USA news" it would obviously have meaning for Indicies as well as forex, do you use them?

Re: Bloomberg Terminal

Live news feed....One more complexity to mess up yer mind.
It's already hard enough.
Back in my early days, the news broke that an Aussie bank had made some obscene profit and I thought my options would scream into the money.
Well by midday the shares had tanked substantially enough that my options were worthless.
But I learn't...... boy oh boy, you learn.

I'm concerned that i'd be too lazy to cancel and constantly paying 20 every month. I'll try find out more about it in the next few days.

AUD/NZD trades in close proximity to it's 20DMA line of 1.3165

Oh I don't care about that stuff. Can you filter out FX only news so you don't get the indices stuff?

I learnt my lesson with them, but I do still have an account I think.

I'd be wary of any info given to me by a SB company tbh, especially when they win from your losses
