@artemiso,

Were all these banknotes supposed to help you for on-the-fly currency conversions?

@artemiso Big balla, Shot calla

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

here's my current setup -

trades all done on a HP workstation with 6 monitors (I mostly really just use 3 nowadays, bought the 6 setup when I first began to trade as I thought the more the merrier ;-) ), an iMac for all internet/chat/forum stuff, and my business manager's (wife) pc which also doubles up as a spare trade station (with a separate mobile Wi-Fi connection in case).

I do have some laptops hanging around for when the sun is shining and I want to remote into my trade workstation from the garden although in London, that doesn't happen too often..!

Cheers
Bry

Internet Service Providers

Anyone have experience with Satillite Internet, like reliability when wanting to trade when on the road? (like in my RV in the mountains?)

Seen some sat recievers for TV, and 6 mps for internet, but I reason this is outmoded. The only other alternative is linking with a DSL or Cable at a campground hard wired...would prefer the independent route tho.

Maybe someone has addressed this on the forum under a thread with which I am unfamiliar?

Stop It!!!!

There needs to be beach resorts or clubs for traders. All rooms with trading desks and monitor racks and laptop docking bays hooked up close to windows or on balconies facing the sunset oceansides
