My Platform

Hardware:- 3 Flat screens , Matrox Dual Card, PIII and P4 1GHz and 2GHZ , 512 Ram, Lap top (not shown here for fast position sizing). One more flat screen since then...

Software:- Loads, mainly IRD, Updata ( no more after next Feb,) other useful tools for real time risk analysis and money managment.

Broker :- Etrade, Datek, CMC, Kstone thinking of switching to www.Tradestation.com

ISP :- Bt internet 56K only

Others:- Couple of swords to cut my losses. ( As shown)

Trading Style:- Heavy use of advanced technical analysis including neural (EOD only) to bully weak stocks. Don't like scalping and never change strategy in the middle of trade.

Hi Grey

I like the set up and its great to see the picture.I kind of guessed that you didnt like scalping.I used to use window on wallstreet which i think was taken over by Tradestation.Any way it's Tradestaion i use now and i find it very agreeable.

Here's mine...

[Naz,
I removed the set-up, cos I thought it might insult a few people... but I am now putting it back, cos I feel it is only fair to show my set-up! This set-up is ALL I need to trade. Pornography within my set-up helps me trade more aggresively for some reason.]

My trading arena is the most stimulating of the lot ... gets my adrenaline and testosterone going simultaneously.

(Dual Monitor Dell, 1gig I think... DSL connection)

TRADING STYLE: destroying newbie traders (sending em back to their day jobs within a few months by consistently depleting their trading accounts) whilst avoiding getting destroyed by the marketmakers.

PICTURE:
1) Various pornography (softcore, hardcore, centrefolds, lesbian etc etc, depending on my mood)
2) The S&P futures (but will also flip it on occasions to the daily chart of the stock I am trading, to get a feel for any key levels I should be wary of)
3) Any 4 stocks that I feel I can make money on (I have about 50 favourite stocks in my head and I look through a selection of em ... some weeks I will just do the same ones ... but sometimes I will get exotic e.g. if an airport has a bomb alert I may trade INVN)

I sometimes post something and take it off so i dont offend anyone.I know just how you feel trading level 2 Nas,i feel i'm REALY trading,i enjoy the buzz,i enjoy realy taking advantage of people who dont know how to trade it properly.

I find it hard to comprehend why more people in the UK dont take advantage of it?

Any negativity is always from people who truly just dont understand it and are not willing to learn. Every person i have ever taught has been absolutely blown away with it.

I always try and look at different styles of trading thats why i found level 2 Nasdaq.But some people just seem to want to stay with the same old boring ways and not open their eyes.Nasdaq like they say is the market of the 21st century and it will expand around the world.One day we will all be taking our trades the same way as they do on the Nasdaq.

Yeah, I agree. I would rather put my money with someone who knows how to avoid getting burnt by the market maker sharks i.e. someone who was either a market maker before or who is self-trained in the games that market makers play. Trading is war, there is no doubt about it... I feel very happy to let others try and theorise about the optimal technical indicators out there... let them do their academising, their systems testing, their statistical modeling... I am 100% happy to be the other side of their trades, if I see that I can take their money from them.
