I tried Holosync a few times and I was not impressed; but this is just my personal experience. Kianti, just as with yoga, it takes more than a few times to fully experience the benefits of these technologies and, again as with yoga, some people are more receptive to it than others. Prozac may be a ...

Hmm, I wonder if Centerpointe's Holo-sync is the same as the Hemi-Sync science? Moritz, I looked at the Hemi-sync material on the their website. There are so many products available. With which CD's do you have experience? Have they been successful? Regards, eD Hi eD (and all others too, of course!...

I use (and am dealer of) the Monroe Institute's hemi-sync material. Should you wish more info, do send me a Private Mail.

Closing prices only...

I have just subscribed to a Dial Data account for end of day data. However, to my surprise I noticed that for several indices only the closing prices are submitted and of course those are the indices that are most relevant to me. :cry: Most of the other data is opening, low, high, closing, volume et...

anything about wine? Euronext used to have a separate futuresmarket for "fine wines", called Winefex. It was announced in 2001 but never became a succes (too much opposition from the established merchants and besides, fine wine is not really a bulk product like grain or copper. There are literally ...

Just to clarify: my question for an European alternative to IB was not made for nationalistic reasons. I am open to any alternative, whether they are American, European or sub-Saharan based. So let's indeed stay on course. Which leads me to the following question: just the order day I got a copy of ...

I'd stay with the american option and steer well clear of europe .. the problem with european companies being that they can close at anytime and blame it on a 35 hour work week , change the rules by which you trade at any time and blame european policy .. plus given that european business in genera...

I am not the only child (though there is some difference in age) but as the youngest kid I prefered to be on my own (and quite frankly, I still do), so I guess the mindset is comparable. I am absolutely convinced that this affects many if not all the things I do (learning to trade, writing) in a ver...

Warning against E Net Speculation

This is what I found on the websit of the Dutch financial market authority: AMF issues a warning on the activities of E Net Speculation The French securities regulator, the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF), is warning the public about the activities of E Net Speculation and the services offer...

Re: Is this viable for traders with limited starting capital

Does anyone know anything about this firm? Are they bona-fide? Are they registered with (or known by) the relevant local authorities? It might be worth the trouble to find out. I would be very careful indeed with committing money to such a firm, especially when having a limited capital base. I have...

I presume you are not german. You are a clever fellow! :D IBs technical support is tailored towards which group? I have found them to be warm wonderful human beings who understand my questions but I have yet to ask them an easy question 8) Maybe I should just give it a try and find out for myself.

That would have depended on the story they had to tell (or sell). Why judge them by their admittedly rather naff looks? After all, the Enron / Worldcom / Ahold executives looked much better but behaved far worse.

IB is european based too (Swiss server) fyi. And they with the tools available are a great broker. I mean a truly European broker, not an American subsidiary. It is about the mentality. But not great at holding hands if you need that. It is not about holding hands (I prefer my wife for that) but ab...

European alternative to Interactive Brokers?

I considered opening an account with Interactive Brokers but after reading postings about them in this forum and asking around, I am not so sure anymore... A courteous and professional help desk is something I greatly value, amongst other things. Any suggestions for a reliable alternative to IB? I w...
