I am aware that in 2008 they reinvented themselves from the remains of an algo focused approach and from what I can tell, they still use it but only to a point. The human element is very much a part of their approach.

I am still optimistic and enthusiastic about it and at the very least it's a means to an end! I put up with a lot of crap where I am now and no support. At least i'll get support there with them and be encouraged to perform better...here....meh...let's just say I am looking forward to the opportunity to struggle in Dublin, staring at screens all day

Let's see if I snag an interview

My number 1 trading rule: EDUCATE YOURSELF!

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

I respect honesty and I am not trying to offend you, but I don't appreciate what I perceived to be you trying to instigate something because you are bored, or perhaps spiteful. What purpose would your challenging have? What does it have to do with trading. I edited it because I was clearly overthinking things. Hence the edited message. I am getting a bit carried away with myself and I might not even get an interview.

I have no interest in discussing anything other than my trading with you. So I'm certainly not going to get into discussion with you over something such as my health. I don't particularly care if you believe anything I say or not my friend. I am here for one purpose... 2 purposes...to improve my trading and to talk to fellow traders about trading.

Again I don't mean to offend you, I know how the internet works, particularly forums and social media so this is all I have to say on the matter. If you have anything productive or constructive to say then by all means do, but please don't start looking for silly things to argue about. We all have better things to be doing that trying to work out whether I have an underactive thyroid gland or hip replacement.

I'd really appreciate it

EDIT: If I am understanding the situation incorrectly then I sincerely apologize
