Markets can be played in holes.
No disrespect to the “hole”.
Let’s put it this way.
I trade the markets from a “bucket shop”. It’s actually a small brokerage. Parallels a bucket-shop, and all legit.
There’s twenty odd people.
Basic desktops. One gets to use them even with medium-sized accounts. A large account holder can walk into the manager’s office and get the manager to trade his or her strategy for him or her for the day. A three minute daily discussion is all it takes. This discussion can even happen on Whatsapp.
If required, food comes from the street-vendors below, in newspapers and plastic cups.
Welcome to the department of no-frills.
No business-class travel or fancy-schmanzy wining-dining is required here. It’s sheer trading with no BS.
No constant terminal monitoring. Someone’s doing it for you.
Safety? Yes. Trust. Long-term relationship. Email and sms security measures. No nonsense.
One doesn’t talk to the twenty odd people.
One just trades.
Trading for you isn’t really about building a consensus. You just trade. If then the market builds a consensus, that’s a different thing. You then trade the consensus. For or against is your call.
This is as raw as it gets.
You ask a question.
You put your money where your mouth is.
If your inquiry is in the correct direction, you get rewarded. If not, you lose a part of your money.
Goes without saying, that overall, you try to win more than you lose.
Department of no-frills cuts to the chase without useless paraphernalia.
