Cobra Trading of Allen Texas, self-described as "an on-and-off ET sponsor," is working to bring TradersExpo to the Dallas area at a yet-to-be-announced date in 2011. With a little artful hacking, I have purloined a preliminary list of vendors from the local area. Those of us in Dallas are thrilled at the opportunity for local talent to be showcased. They and their mission statements are: Joe Doaks Software: "We code up your trading ideas, no matter how incomprehensible, illogical, or stupid, and never laugh." Fleming Snopes Trading: "Trade free with us for a month, and if not fully satisfied we'll cheerfully refund to you whatever might be left." Loa Tzu Market Data: "We provide the thrifty Asian expatriate trading community with a low cost service made possible by our proprietary worldwide network of hijacked PCs which pings free data sources worldwide and consolidates the results into a single data stream for those who can trade off a lot of cost for a little latency." Deco Communications: "We provide a free internet trade order routing service, made possible by our exclusive relationship with High Frequency Trading server providers." Plecostomus ET Traders' Sediment Advisory: "We scrape ET threads in real time for trade calls, consolidate them and fade the majority opinion for you so you won't have to hurt your head or turn your stomach." Kraepelin Trade Coaching: "We are pleased to offer struggling traders free real-time consultation, asking only that you let us take the other side of your trades while you are our client." Please plan to join us and these vendors. They promise to have lots of booth babes who work the convention center day shift to provide you for a modest fee what you're really looking for when you go out of town.
