View Full Version : Substitute for screen time?

01-26-2006, 10:22 PM
Hey peeps. I have a normal full time 40 hr/week job and due to the wonder of tax year, an additional 10 hr (soon to be ) per week job on top of that for the next few months.

Regrettably I can not see myself with a lot of time to trade in front of my pc and was wondering whether there was any substitute for actual desktop screen time. I was considering a smartphone (new treo?) Or a http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/egory.aspx/pda?c=uscs=19l=ens=dhs. Just to not lose face trade and time wirelessly a little here and there.

GFT (my broker) claims to have a excellent http://www.gftforex.com/products/mobile/index.asp (but then again what broker could acknowledge their wireless platform stinks ).

Good idea? Bad idea??

Hmm... recall that mobile device will enable you to track the market but with restricted options.
Be sure to choose a system which will enable you to not only see price tickers but charts too.
Metatrader is an excellent platform and is offered in mobile version which runs great on a PDA.
Choose a broker who gives this platform choose a device with a windows family operating system.
Also be certain that device that you choose is compatible with your cellular service provider.
You Can Begin with looking at these in case you haven't already http://www.xview.com/products/pda.html or http://www.xview.com/products/pdatmobile.html
Good luck,

It may allow you to monitor the market but I doubt that you'd be very successful with such a piecemeal approach. I'd have believed that if you can not spend much time monitoring the market then it may be worth getting a break from it for a while - I am pretty sure it will still be here when you return to it.

Have you asked yourself why you want to watch the market throughout your other tasks? Is it to find a feeling of price action, or to trade, or something different?

I have been looking at the exact same thing, some of those mobile phones seem like they can run the wireless apps. I haven't attempted any I'm going to go to speak to the people at cingular this weekend and then ask them about it.
