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.

Yeah long hours in the saddle are probably the number one ingredient to working towards profitability, watch and learn. I use to dream about candle sticks are graphs when I would sleep as I would spend from waking to sleeping hours in the saddle watching and tading the markets.

Still, my wallet has hurt alot more than my bum !

Yeah I have been at this (trading) for almost 7 years now and I had a very sedentary job the 3 years previous to that, so it has been common for me to be sitting at a computer for approximately 12 hours a day for about 10 years now.

I am not sure if my 'bum problems' stem from my recent chair changes or from the accumulation of years tied to a chair.

I find that a good daily workout and a comfortable chair will do the trick for me even though I spend sometimes up to 8 hours sitting.

Being new to futures, I can definitively use the screen-time, but it can't be good for my health -so far only my bum is complaining

Yes, but is it affecting your bottom line?

Those kneel-chairs are really good, although I'm using a rotatable stool at the moment.
