Few Questions for Traders

  1. Have you ever encountered a situation where you were forced to reduce number of alternative choices (Shares/Companies researched) due to time constraint, tediousness and human errors?
  2. If you had the technology to streamline/speed up the analysis of data and reduce human role in the filtering of stocks(chart analysis not tradingview filters), would you say it would help you? Specifically - Using web scraping, spreadsheets and analysis tools to gather, analyse and gain insight from raw data in an efficient and timely manner.
  3. Do you use youtube videos, economic newspapers and tips from top traders/executives to make your stock selection?
  4. What is your opinion on practices like margin/leverage, spread, and fees?
  5. What is your opinion on practices like stop-loss hunting, data mining, funding of brokerages by investment banks (conflict of interest) and brokerages taking opposite trades of the trader.
