I saw a post mentioning MT4, I've looked into MT4 to program EAs and to be honest, MT4 is a good piece of software, however the brokers behind it are kind of shady (electronic dealer for instance). the backtesting abilities of the program are lacking of a lot of features too... In Singapore: Philip ...

you may want to take a look at Virtuemart (an add on to joomla)
easy, flexible and free.

you may need a nice template though as the "out of the box" one is rather ugly!

hello I would suggest you buy a website template that looks pro and maybe use a CMS system like Joomla. the cost should be around USD $100 but it should look "pro". It would also give you some control over your info and how you want to display it. then you will need to host the website and...

concierge service: business model?

hello! I'd have a few questions on concierge services (I am quite curious about the business model) I read an article on someone who started a concierge service from Singapore. basically: you subscribe to his service and you get discounts on golf courses, free green fees, discount on the pro shop et...

Use Interactive Brokers (IB) if you want to DayTrade or Scalp. Otherwise you can even use something like Options Express (OX) or Saxobank's platform. The main difference is in the commissions. IB charges only US 1.00 per 100 shares trade, one way. Which means it's only 2 buck per round trip per 100...

Apart from the fact it is questionable to pay for such a service, I believe this intent is a waste of money for a least 4 reasons. First, the quality of the database: a lot of people now have a spare email address that they use when they register to websites that are likely to "recycle" th...
