ukdaytrader started this thread See the returns on the £80..........once my strategy has run for a few more months I will be pumping more money into the account and upping the stakes 5 fold. Hence the need for a professional data feed and news.

Tip of the day today - Buy Bovis Homes, Sell Berkley Group Holdings - wait for 2 weeks. Make sure market value exposures are the same.

Does your broker not provide you with a news feed?

If not

CNBC and Bloomberg TV usually are counting down to the economic news and reveal it as it's announced, probably free on SKY may even be able to watch live on net, much better than $2k a month

WOW they've really moved on that, BVS.l +0.4% BKG.l -0.05%

And if you're talking about stock trading their tips.

I was a UK market maker for 8 years and we hardly eve had Bloomberg TV on, that's how much notice we took of it.

Something to think about....

I dont agree with your point on the tip of the day at all. It was bloomberg that caused the share drop in the FTSE and S&P index to fall last week . It collapses and then its back to normal. .
Funny - that's not what all the equities traders at my firm were saying. Still, they could all be wrong I suppose......

Mate, on an £80 account you need returns of 1532% per month just to cover the cost of the terminal, never mind being able to 'up the stakes 5 fold'... get a grip on reality - Bloomberg Terminals are for institutional traders and very large/egotistical locals, not for guys SBing an £80 account.
