Dear all, I apologize for not having been too active on the site lately. With the current markets in such turmoil there is much to distract our attention and a lot to ponder over. Well, I am not immune. I hope I will find the time in the near future to write an extensive update about the developments with Tipping Monkey, but I wanted to thank all the loyal members who continue to visit or otherwise support this site.
But first things first, I wanted to let all of you know that Options trading - which is one of the key differentiating features of Tipping Monkey - is back! The main change is that now we've embraced the "@" prefix for option symbols as our quote provider had changed their system. I think this is long overdue and better, since it eliminates the confusion between stock/option symbol clashes, and allows for quick visual disambiguation between stocks, options, and FOREX symbols.
We now also have commodity symbols (denoted with a "/" prefix) that people can "trade" (i.e. buy and sell only). We will be looking at updating the trading engine to see what additional support we need to add for more comprehensive commodities activity. We will be rolling out incremental changes in the next few months. Stay tuned!
