KSpreadTrader -- Any Models To Follow?
I would like to create a KDE program which would be able to display
stocks with a Bid/Ask spread of more than 3 cents so that a user can
then execute a trade "inside the spread" using a service such as E*TRADE.
"Inside the spread" refers to the Bid/Ask price being separated by at least
3 cents or more. After buying the stock, a bid can be placed "inside" the
spread by 1 cent, and immediately sold for at least 1 cent more. These
bids/asks move to the front of the queue and are immediately executed
on the trading floor.
I am aware that programs exist to display running stock prices.
Such a program as I envision could be created from the shell
of such a "digital stock ticker".
Forgoing the complications of actually executing such a trade inside the spread,
it is possible to create a program that alerts the user of the availability
of such trades.
BEEP BEEP BEEP SCOX has a spread of 1.00 - 1.05. BEEP BEEP BEEP
A mental image of the desired processs should be clear. If anyone can provide
