All, I have some questions regarding your experiences/lives as traders. I do not trade (yet), I do however work for an asset management firm and believe that I may be suited to make an attempt at the profession because of my passion for investments. I say investments, because I feel personally that I would be more of a swing trader rather than a scalper type. Anyway, I hope the following makes sense. Please take a look at them... I would love any and all feedback. - Are all/most of you technical analysis traders (as in, you study charts)? What about Fundamental? Swing? Scalp? Momentum/Trend? M&A? - Are there ways to trade remotely (not sitting in front of a desktop/laptop).....(i.e. via Blackberry/Smartphone/PDA)?? I ask this one because I am a fan of connectivity, meaning that if I HAD to be somewhere away from my office, I could still make moves if I saw an opportunity - Is it best to diversify your strategy (trade many different types of securities), or might it be ideal to trade one and only one thing (i.e. gold, shatz, a stock, e-minis)....so that you would be an "expert" regarding the one asset type/equity you are trading? - Is it best/ideal to trade in a market that is open 24hrs a day (I believe e-minis is 24hr)(I wouldn't mind being able to make my own hours and make money all day long)....or would it be good to trade in market that closes at times (in order to provide sanity/take a step back into reality/give yourself some time to breathe & relax).....I ask this question because I could easily see myself getting obsessed and never sleeping (which would be a bad thing) Thanks for reading (sorry for writing a novel), and let me know if you have anything for me.
