There are some pre-conditions though: Precondition 1 - This is largely dependent on you having done a lot of screen time and knowing your market well. This...

    General Trading Chat

    So folks, I have a personal opinion that the majority of value on this site was centred around General Trading Chat and that the restructuring has facilitated categorisation of information rather than usability. If you have any experience building websites, you will understand the difference...
