Anyone using Platinum or Trader (premium)?

  1. Late. You'll never hear it first on briefing platinum. Briefing trader, maybe
  2. Excellent for pre-market, excellent for follow up details. Not really designed for "calls." IMO.

    i use platinum only and echo don's thoughts about pre-mkt.

    i have it auto-updating during day, but very rarely use it.
  4. From what I see on their website, the advantage of the "trader" level is the calls.

    " Specific Technical Trading Set-Ups with Entry/Exit Points"

    I'm wondering if their calls are worthwhile. I figure since they have access to the news, they should be in a better position to make calls right?
  5. I think one of my manager's uses the trader level. I'll ask him what he thinks.

    I have Trader and like it.

    Sometimes I use the calls, but every month, I've had a "Pays for the service" trade out of a news item that hits Trader before it hits Platinum (at which time I'm covering to Platinum traders ;) )

    But if you're gonna do that, you better be set up and ready for it and quick... always enter with hotkeys.

    An example of this today is:

    Briefing Trader: 13:51 FCX Hearing Upgraded (Price 104.00)

    Briefing Platinum: 13:53 FCX Hearing Upgraded (Price 104.35 and heading back down)

    Like I say, you gotta be quick

  7. This is a great example, thanks for sharing. I am not that quick right now so it looks like maybe I should get the platinum.

    FCX corrected but then when up to 105, so there was at least a chance to get in on the action for those who didn't get the trader news.

    Thanks for the comments...

    Is there a better 'pre-market' email service than I am looking for market calendar, asia closes, and pre-market index futures....

    Now I am going to several web sites to find the info but believe there must be a good service that does this better than what I am doing.

    Thank you
