Sorry, i was talking about level2 etc, more necessary if you're day trading uk stocks, but i guess for the posters needs then all the info will be on the L1 and other parts.

More money saving tips on T2W!!!!

People who actually use Bloomberg chimed in and gave sensible advice (mostly). What more do you want?
Completely agree, although the problem is that with an internet forum one persons innocent comment can be seen as an aggressive reply by others.

to be fair the quality of this board has dropped off recently. i used to come here to apss the time of day in quiet periods but now the chit chat is pretty rubbish and there is very rarely anything interesting said about the markets. shame really.

imho Sharky took his eye off the ball a long time ago. Lots of members, core product drifting gradually from investment grade to junk though. Once it passes a certain threshold, it'll be non investment grade, and I'll be off. Not far off tbh....

Well at the end of the day this is a commercial enterprise for someone; yeah it's nice to be able to shoot the breeze / meet by the water cooler now and again... hell there is even alot of top quality info to be learned here of you dig deep enough - but I don't necessarily see why someone else should stump up the overheads for little old me to crack jokes, post a few charts, generally procrastinate.

The purpose of T2W is to generate income for someone. That income is sourced from ad revenues. The ad revenues exist because there is a never ending stream of new blood to sell to; threads about VaR, central bank policy etc don't do much for the "click rates".

EDIT: Just read the post back to myself... I actually agree with you, it's just getting boring - but as a non-paying punter, what else can I expect? The problem the management have is that there needs to be something for the new blood to come here for - if the likes of you and Goose are fed up and go elsewhere, you will have a forum full of newbs with nothing to stay for (at least nothing that they can be bothered to look for) Cue plummeting ad revenues.
