This site was created for guys sitting at home in their underwear trading with IB during the tech bubble WITH THEIR OWN MONEY. It was not created for the hooligans that currently haunt this board to include prop traders, institutional types, hedge fund flunkees, Hershey types, etc or the fakes/phoneys/frauds that wish they worked on wall street but really are non-traders sitting out of a garage in some mid-west small town. I want to give a shout out to my at-home crew on the IB trading away using desktop or laptop PCs bought at Circuit City. The hardest trading job in the world is to sit in a small room in your residence with your own money on a system that is constantly malfunctioning with non-existent customer service. There is no "risk manager", no "branch manager", no analysts, no helpdesk to call nothing...just you, the ceiling and god. I'd like to see some of the so-called fund managers be given IB and 30k and placed in a small room out of a residence and trade. Its difficult, harder then most think. I bet you some of the so-called fund managers would blow that account in no time. Let me hear it at home traders!!! Lemme hear it!!!
