I highly recommend palming. If you don't watch order flow, you can do that 'between' bars forming.

It looks like the floor of the South Korean stock exchange. The people pictured are probably specialists making markets. Nevermind, I see on the monitors it says KEB. Probably the trading floor at the bank.

Or use blue blocking glasses designed to filter out the harmful light. I use these would gladly set up a fio discount code if anyone would like some.

Any tips on how to avoid eyestrain?

Some time ago now, I had a customer send me a pair of Gunnar Gaming and Computer Glasses out of appreciation for some work I did for them...

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0ZX2KW5545&Description=comp...s-_-26-665-011-_-Product

While it took a little getting use to the yellow tinted lenses, I love these things, and not sure why I had not bought a pair years ago..

Just do a search for "Gunnar" and there are dozens of different styles, some even available at the local Best Buys..

Thanks for sharing. I may be an isolated case, but I used to use blue-blocking glasses, specifically designed for computer use. After about a month, I fell into a deep depression (like scary self-destructive depression) that I couldn't shake. I made no correlation between using the glasses and my depression. Then I realized it only happened while working at my computer. I think lack of blue-light was causing my depression, kind of like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Anyhow, I stopped using them right away, took a walk in the sun for about 5 minutes (to get some high quality blue light), and my depression vanished. It was pretty dramatic mood shift. I never used them again and the depression never returned.

Again, I may be alone here, but I always caution people about them. It's a shame, because I really like using them and found them effective.

I would suggest taking vitamin D and spending more time in the sun if anything the blue light from computers/phones/tablet are on a different wave frequency then light from the sun and will have negative affects. The light we get from computers is obviously not natural. Spend a month without any electronics phone/tv/computers and your body will get back into a cycle of waking up at sun rise and falling asleep when the sunsets/ shortly after. Our bodies for thousands of years have relied on the sun and it does wonders when you get back into that routine.

Totally agree. I do use Twilight on my phone and tablet and use the built-in Windows Night light feature that allows me to adjust the amount of blue light I get while I work, especially at night. Thankfully I work at home so I am able to take walks pretty much any time I want.
