When I think of all the banks of IBM computers with a large array of tape drives in the first floor of Mission Control, I marvel at the concentration of computing power. In the 1960s it represented the penultimate in computer power. In 2015 it is less than a smart phone. The on-board computer on the Lunar Module was less than a digital watch. I cannot imagine what it will be like 50 years from now. I'll ask my grandson. In 50 years he will be 80.

    Hello Mr. Niederhoffer,

    As a daytrader and avid learner, it’s an honor to speak with you. My father, who grew up in Brooklyn, went to Brooklyn College followed by Brooklyn Law School, and I believe crossed paths with your father so I’ve known of you for years.

    Currently, I am co-hosting a meetup group (http://www.meetup.com/TRADDR/) which presents in Manhattan on 48 Wall Street. Our goal is to find speakers who would be willing to donate an hour or two of their time and pass on some wisdom to traders and investors. We would be truly honored if you would be willing to come and speak. If so, please let me know of your availability, and we can gladly work this around your schedule.

    This meetup has 579 local members. We also are sponsored by #PremiereTrader which is a Free daytrading chat room hosting over 150 career professional traders congregating daily. While those traders are allover the world, many are in NY and I’m sure would love to attend.

    We can also provide advertising for Daily Speculations and help increase awareness if you would like.

    Have a great weekend.

    Fred Lande
