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.

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.

Black with posture fit.

I am perplex...

Watching charts on
1 screen means --> decent gains
2 screens means ------> extra decent gains
4 sceens means -------------> extra excessive gains

...

8 screens means ---------------------> uncountable gains

please ...FILL UP HERE....

SO what are we looking really in front of us as the one and only Trader KINGS?

I don't know - but even looking at ONE chart on ONE screen gives me sometimes headaches....

Very glad to have only TWO eyes

It's all relative to the time frame you're focusing on.

For a while now, I have been discontent with the fact that I spend so much of my day sitting, (probably OVER 16 hours) and so little time active (1-2 hours at the gym), so I spent the morning setting up a temporary standing workstation to test it out before I spend money on a custom made desk.

Excellent experimental setup addchild.
I also sometimes get worried about the amount of time I spend sitting on a daily basis.
Please keep us posted about what kind of changes you feel in switching over to the standing workstation, in a few weeks time.

Regards

I love the stand up desk...it is actually a coffee table from Ikea on top of my regular desk. Great for trading, but for "typical" work, stuff like spread sheets, research, writing letters or any type of paper shuffle it is not so good. For that stuff I use the credenza and the return, but they are sometimes a little tight.

I think the standing desks are a great idea.
However, after sitting in the office during the day, I'm ready to kill it in the gym.
Maybe I could try both.
