Welcome to futures io.

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.

-- Big Mike

There is another thread about this too, but I can't find it at the moment.

Here is a pic of my desk.

Anybody have any experience with sit/stand adjustable desks?

GeekDesk® Adjustable Height Desks - GeekDesk Max

Thinking about picking one of these up, seem to be pretty well priced, but I'll save some cash by buying the frame only and making a top myself.

@addchild

That's a fancy one.







This one is manually adjusted ( hand crank ) but half the price.

Depends on what you want, I guess.

Ahh, a woman who knows her place in way around a kitchen is a woman who knows how to please a man. Good times. What I just said is unarguably absolute truth, though some delusional folks out there may think it sounds sexist.

Nice chair. I considered them a couple times, but just couldn't talk myself into spending that kind of money on a chair.

Nice desk too, I wish I had a desk that deep. We learn from our mistakes

Mike

I had Aerons back in 1998-2001 when I worked at buy.com and various spinoffs from there, they are really nice chairs, but I wish they had higher backs for better neck support.

I have posted mine before but here is a slightly arty shot for the thread. Like Mike, I have my dog by my side when trading and she is trained to identify trends :P

Mac mini is for surfing when I don't need the beast turned on or for downloading my favourite tv shows while I'm in bed.

Had the same monitor setup for a while and the computer specs are below. Bought it mid last year and designed it to last 3-5 years depending on what technology does.

i7-2600k overclocked to 4.4ghz
Asus P8z68-v Pro
Asus 6950 2Gb
16Gig 2133 Ram
Many hard drives
Silverstone FT02 USB3
TV tuner card
Logitech Dinovo for Notebooks (Unlike the current trend of clicky keyboards I like notebook slim line ones)
Logitech Performance MX mouse.

The notebook, pen and ruler are my old fashion Trading Journal tools. I have tried many different trading log tools but I haven't found anything that beats it.
