Trading is a fight. The trading floor is like a boxing ring in which millions of traders fight for winning or at least for survival. In order for you to succeed, you need all the help you can get and the first one is your trading platform. The trading platform should not be just a tool that helps you place orders, but it should be a weapon and a way of making a difference. In order for this to happen it must fulfill some requirements, different from trader to trader. Without saying that I have indentified all of them, below are listed those that are the most important for me.
