  1. I definitely support this idea. This could be a sort of missing link for some of us. Currently, I see a lot of great trades, methodology, and analysis which I appreciate a lot. I don't see much in the way of sharing of equity curves over the months and years as someone gains consistency. I think there would be a lot to learn from that and it could be enlightening to see the realities of the learning curve good and bad from different perspectives. I think there was a webinar similar to this done recently actually, but I don't see it posted anywhere yet and I wasn't able to catch it live due to my time zone.
  2. I have traded from Taiwan, Thailand, Canada, and mainland China. In Canada, Taiwan, and Thailand the connection was pretty good and I got reliable and quick executions from IB on TWS. I don't use DAS, but presumably it wouldn't bee too different. In mainland China on the other hand it was a different story. The Internet inside China was blazing fast and pretty reliable for Baidu and what have you that comes from within China. As soon as I needed servers and websites outside the mainland it was laggy and I got cut off frequently. And I'm not talking about the banned stuff that you would need a VPN for. I was able to connect to my trading platform without a VPN and got cut off a lot and it was laggy and unpredictable. With a VPN it was a little better. So, to the OP, it would likely depend greatly on where in Asia and what powers are controlling the Internet there.
  3. I just spent a month with my 17" ASUS laptop and two ASUS extrenal USB monitors. I found that that did the job and I didn't feel like I needed anymore screens. The charts didn't load quite as fast but it worked out fine. I had to use Wifi but it was okay. It's even better if you can plug in with a LAN cable for (hopefully) a stable connection.
  4. I've been trading from Wifi in Kaohsiung, Taiwan for the last two weeks. I have a fairly good connection here so it's been fine, but it did cut out a couple of times which rarely happens to me at home. I would use a wired ethernet connection if I could but this place only has Wifi. The speed and the ping are good though. I would agree that 10mbps is doable, but more is better of course if you've got audio from the chatroom, multiple charts, two charting programs etc. So 24 is probably decent. Of course it's good to have your phone with the trading app close by with data so you can use it to hop out of a position if things go haywire.
  5. You have to sort out how to upload the trades which might be a little tedious at first until you get it set up. I trade with Interactive Brokers and I use TWS as my platform. It works whether it's sim or real as long as the data is complete. I have a few different Tradervue accounts for different purposes. (one for sim, one for real day trading, and one for swing trading) I save my results to Excel, make a couple of tweaks to the format and then copy and paste into Traderview. They might have some more direct way for DAS.
  6. Do you use www.tradervue.com by any chance? The free membership lets you track 100 trades per month and it automatically generates quite a few useful statistics and charts. You can also use it as a journal for your daily progress and look back over time to how you've progressed.
  7. I don't know the rules about your opening an actual US account, but another option might be the borderless account with Transferwise: https://transferwise.com/gb/borderless/ Also, there's N26, an online German bank with international features and they have a partnership with Transferwise: https://n26.com/en-eu/
  8. Prorealtime (www.prorealtime.com) is a platform that I have heard good things about, but they don't seem to have that much of a presence on social media chatter. They might be more popular in Europe and it looks like they are UK-based.
