Several of you have asked about specific "working" strategies employed by our traders. The following is offered in the Spirit of sharing, and is not in any way to be construed as an ad for Bright Trading. If anyone, yes anyone, thinks differently then I am glad to take down the post. I can only refer to what our traders are doing since that is all I am priveleged to. Here goes.... Our traders have been doing very well with pair trading using various risk parameters and methods. From simple "daytrading" the various pairs, to risk expansion via overnight positions. This entails some individual money management (which we strongly encourage) and a full understanding of historical movements and standard deviations based on volatility and the stock's individual beta's. Since we have several of our top people completing the "beta testing" of a couple of different versions of automation, we should have a good working model for new (experienced) traders to utilize. The "opening" plays are still extremely viable, and we will be allowing automation to more people as soon as we dedicate some servers. Tape reading still plays an important part even though we have changed the visual monitor view somewhat. Following short sellers and "envelope" orders are doing well. Anyway....just some basics to think about (did not mean to sound "technical" in any way, and figure you guys are already trading so this all should sound basic to you). I cannot really go into too much detail here, not fair to our traders, but look for some cool stuff for the new year.
