Yesterday I showed a video of a scalp short in VMware, Inc. (Public, NYSE:VMW) The account I traded it in has some excellent tools for order execution and I received a lot of feedback from people who thought the tools would help their trading. More advanced trading tools will help a lot of traders, especially if they are very short term focused. The trades below in Excel Maritime Carriers Ltd (Public, NYSE:EXM) were executed via a system I am not thrilled with all the time (some of you know what I mean) but the basic order entry this firm uses was good enough to trade the stock successfully. Your market focus should be based on understanding how stocks trade and market dynamics and then executing with discipline. All the bells and whisltes will do more harm than good in the hands of a trader whose basic market understanding lacks.
