Traders Expo NY

Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by EvOTrAdEr, Jan 15, 2012.

  1. Me and a few buddies used to sign up the whole desk & check them in early. The guys would always appreciate the pre-checkin and never show up the night before so it was win-win... and you'd get 10-15 drink tickets...

    Free booze in NYC is rare... disappointed they shut that down. Was a pretty decent group of guys that would show up for the night before scene.

    She wasn't last year. Year before she was just sitting there and no one gave her a second thought. In 2010, I went hoping to meet her ... but alas, no lass.

  7. I am not surprised. Someone said they were cold calling attendees trying to get the numbers up. I bet this will be final year. surf

  8. I was there first night. it was all big-name retail brokers with a few education firms. No prop or anything along those lines. IBD and some other news and data providers were there.

    Overall, from seeing that at a place like NYC you can tell the small businesses in the trading industry are all but gone. The environment for trading today is the worst I've seen in a dozen years of trading the markets.
