I daytraded at the now defunct WorldCo LLC. in NYC from 2001 to 2003. I found it very difficult to make a living but after many ups and downs left as a profitable trader. I have been following Covel's "Trendfollowing" for the past year. Seems to me like a decent strategy and would like to get some ideas on brokers and software. I would only trade after my regular 9-5 job but need a software program that analyzes the market and would notify me of breakout opportunities. Since I am tight with startup capital, can anyone advise on a broker that charges low commisions and a software package. I am primarily interested in trading the futures markets. Any help would be great!
