Well, 2007 is here and I was able to get a better position at my work. Apparently, in my free time which is a better half of a trading day, I am allowed to trade, BUT, I have to do it on my equipment and provide my own internet connection. I have a fairly new notebook (1 year old) that should handle my trading work load. However, what preoccupies me is the wireless part. As of today, there are 3 major companies: T Mobile, Cingular, Vrizon. All claim to have coverage in NYC and all offer the same speed which is 400 to 700kbps. Pricewise they are in the same ball park that is $59 to $79. My questions are: 1. Which one of the three has the fastest real world connection in NYC? 2. Would a speed of 400 to 700 kbps be enough to actively trade futures (ES, ER 2). I go in for 1 point and stay in max. 30 min or until I hit the point or -1), so no scalping or quick entry, exit movements. What I am afraid is the latency of quotes (use e signal) and latency of fills with wireless access (IB as a broker). Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions are welcome.
