    Hello Fellow Traders,

    My leg broke last week from playing racquet ball so I'm home-bound for a few weeks away from the trading desk. There's a project I've thought about working on for some time but never found time.... I guess this is as good as ever. I'd like to get some input from the pros on this board about this,

    Most of the trading interfaces out there are more or less like IB's. That is, you click on some ticker, enter some data, set a order type and off it goes. It's fine. It has been working for a long long time. But, I'm sure every trader has wondered, is there a better way to trade? That is, is there a more nature/efficient way to handle trades. Most scapers know that a good interface is worth a whole lot of brownie points indeed.

    In a previous life, I was a PH.D in computer science. So I have some background to do the grunt work. I'd love to hear any suggestions from the traders here, and I'd be happy to share the end result (if there is one) with everybody.

    - Peace.
