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

I sorta think some money should have been put aside for a decent chair.

75% of the screens are redundant as they display the same information.

Many office chairs will break down under a weight of 500 lbls, but this one also seems to fit the size of senior screen traders.

Current trading space

My trading space ...

... has been updated.

A few months ago, my youngest daughter got an apartment with her BFF so Project: Trading Station Relocation started percolating. However, as I learned from my first daughter's attempts to 'move-out', I opted to let the empty room simmer for a few months. Now that I've pretty well got it up to snuff, I'm expecting any day to hear she is coming home

Anyway, here's where I do my thing:

Trading Desk

And my most favoritest pen I've ever used:

The pens come in tons of colors too. Got my entire family addicted to these pens.

Edit: Btw, that is after-sun moisturizer serving as a book end. Not that anyone might think it was anything else, but just in case

Tell her if she moves back she'll have to learn to trade forex. Kids today are up all hours texting anyway!

Shameless plug for my office... we probably spent more on Aeron chairs than on our monitors.

Want! I have my eye on one but can't decide whether to spring for a fully loaded polished one or just go black with posture fit.
