We fired a guy in Luanda because he was constantly trading at his desk instead of doing what he was supposed to be doing (well that and he was an asshole). I used to watch him. He had a laptop running all the time and things would blink red or green, he’d make a trade, and keep watching it like a hawk.
Seems to me that if you’re a trader or into FX that you’d have to watch it continually in order to make money at the margins, which is what got this guy run off.
Are you handcuffed to a laptop or do you set up algorithms which do this automatically?
