Hello. Was harkening to the good ol' days when day trading/bandits/nasdaq/ipos caught the imagination of joe q. public, many who thought this day trading stuff was easy, and some who read the ?jan '97? inc mag article with burke and block on the cover and were convinced to open their own shop (like I did). So here's the deal: how many now-defunct day trading firms can we all collectively name? If possible include dates of operation and your interpretation of why they went under. I'll start out with a couple: GO Trading, out of santa monica, ca. Dont know start date, but my understanding was a remote trader took on some 100k shares long of something that went fm $8-$4, and compliance was asleep at the wheel. The head 24 decided just to leave (heard she got married to a raiders coach, or something).... Summit Trading, houston, closed shop in 2000. Once occupied the galleria where block trading used to be. Last heard that the principal of the firm got nailed some $20k in sec fines. And while I am at it, anybody know what happened/is happening to tradecast. Last time I looked, ?ameritrade? (or some other big firm) was trying to unload it. Anybody got any later info?(always did like tcast, order of priorities: 1. stability, 2. speed, 3. bells and whistles). So...step up to the mike and start naming names. Enjoy. Javaboy.
