Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I'm trying to understand this, can you share a photo of this in action?


Sorry. Bad explanation.

To clarify I sit on a coccyx cushion on the floor, and have my monitors on a entertainment stand that is about knee height. This is about 20" off the floor which the monitors rest on.
I think it will be easier on my neck if I raise my monitors a few inches. A simple fix.

I am really interested in the workstations similar to the ones nurses use that can go up and down. I've seen them for trading too. But they are in the thousands of dollars.

Another thought would be to put the monitors on an adjustable arm that the elevation can be adjusted.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

the correct answer is "have lots of sitting options and move a lot". Sitting is horrible for you.
I have a regular office chair, a saddle chair, a yoga ball, a 6"x12x18 box, an 18"x24x36 box, a big circular pillow, and of course, my favorite, a nice homemade rocking sieza chair. I spend no more than 30 minutes in any one sitting device, and actually have my sierra chart play a chirp at XX:20 and XX:50 to "move around switch it up". I try to spend at least half the day sitting directly on the floor on my big green pillow. My desk is also setup to be usable standing, sitting in normal chair or on the floor.

if you think i am a looney for all these contraptions- then try this and see if your hips are as supple as you think they are when you can't put your leg into extension.
