HI I HAVE TRADED FUTURES AND SPREAD BETTED IN THE PAST BUT I MISS THE OFFICE ENVIRONMENT SO I MAY GO BACK INTO IT AND HIRE AN OFFICE LAID BACK, FOR 5-15 PEOPLE WOULD YOU CONSIDER DOING IT FOR SPREAD BETTING, FUTURES ETC ETC
The provisional plans would include
Desk with Pc and dual monitors
Broadband/Leased line connection to access global exchanges
Satellite Television for 24hr Market news
As part of a group we would be able to get cheaper brokerage, discounts on data feeds for charts etc, thus if you were a high volume trader you could possibly save enough in brokerage per month to pay your seat(£500).
You would work in a environment with like minded people to exchange idea flows to help stimulate trading ideas.
There will be a kitchenette with complementary tea/coffee etc
a small games/rest room with satellite TV/play-station etc.
You would have access to a number of technical charting books for pattern/candlestick formations.
Daily analysis of markets.
The only fees you would have to pay on top would be you telephone call charges, brokerage fees and charting and exchange fees.
The people will make the office, we want to have people who are interested in the markets, and not about office politics!!
I hope this helps
Why not just go to Schneider, they do this as standard, the cost is c £700 per month, but it also includes your telephone costs. They already have a room full of 'like minded' sheep.. erm, sorry, traders......
Alternatively there is also KYTE Group who do a similar thing in Islington.
Apporoach either as a group they may well cut you a deal on a slightly cheaper rate - everything is negotiable!
Either way you get the desk without the risk of signing your own lease which could be very expensive if you don't fill the seats - of course you may be trying to follow STA as a business model so that the other traders pay your way.............
(nothing to do with Schneider, do use Kyte as a broker)
