This is becoming the rapidly diminishing trading expo Many fewer people than last year (the trend down is accelerating) and even fewer exhibitors. Seems to me that the big firms (and only them) are taking over the show and traders are not showing up. It used to be that smaller trading outfits were there in large numbers peddling their new/exciting wares and providing lots of interest and entertainment. Now it's Fidelity, Schwab and Tradestation running the show... excellent firms but we already know everything about them. My prediction is that within a year or two, this expo will cease to exist. Too bad. Oh well.
