Dunno, make a counter proposal.

I'm also thinking we're going to have to arrange phone calls every 20 minutes, physical examination every day. Narcotics perfectly acceptable

And if you can scalp cable 24 hours a day, at least one trade every couple of minutes, succuesfuly from a Sunday open to Friday close then I reckon between a few of us we can reach a hundred grand bonus pot

It's just an idea and would take some planning but I just wanted to put it out there for your consideration.

The idea is to set up a trading account and have a select group of "regulars" from Trade2Win all trade it.

I was originally thinking to try and get traders from different areas of the world or ones that specialise in different markets.

So, some in London, (and Europe), the USA and Asia / Australia (alternative time zones). People would then be able to log into the account in their own time zones and are free to take positions (risk management parameters will come into play later on - daily stop out levels etc)

The idea is that the account is constantly in play as the sun passes around the globe and there is always someone watching the markets.

At the same time, every major market would be covered from FX to commodities. Shares, to indices, to bonds, to interest rates.

And every style of trading would be acceptable. The scalpers would be representing in the same way as the position traders.

Each trader would do what they do best.

We would see just what we could do with this (profits split between all the traders) and where it led us.

I have a lot of thoughts on how this would work out in reality (risk management, practicality of access etc) and have already done some groundwork.

Any thoughts?

Interesting idea and one important consideration from my perspective is what level of commitment would be required? Being in full time employment with a family my hours would be irregular (9-11 pm would suit me most).

I would like to participate subject to chores - but either way I'd be interested and think it is a good idea.

Best regards...

We need to work out the stipulations and there's no way i'm doing this at evens. The original proposal was a statement of staying awake all week too. I'll need good odds to be doing cable scalping too as you outlined.

I really like this idea. I suggested a similar idea a while back when "Tomtom" started some stupid thread about him wanting to open a bank and I said we should have a T2W bank and have the top traders on here trade for it. I don't think I was taken very seriously at the time because that thread was a bit of a joke but I really believe that there are some great minds on here and surely we could take advantage of that.

Here are some ideas:-

-Trader_Dante runs it. He's very well respected here and it was his idea.
- Any T2W member can add money to the pot for a percentage of the profits (or losses )
- There are a set number of people that can trade with the capital. The better their performance, the more capital they are allocated to trade with, this will in turn increase their reward as insentive to do well.
- The people trading the capital will get much more of the profits than those simply adding capital.... Or maybe dante just wants it so that only people trading it can add capital, in which case I am out because I'm not good enough to trade with other peoples money yet, otherwise I'd be willing to put about £2k in. Get 50 people throwing £2k in and thats a good starting figure! Anyone else got any suggestions?

Sam.
