Welcome to

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.

Hi Josh. I am also interested bout you changes too. Did you do it and did it helped? I am also thinking bout getting a place where I will be not be interupted. It's nice to be able to work from home. However sharing the study room with your wife and kids, sometimes...most of the time is too much of a distraction. Not too mentioned guest coming, ringing the bell, the delivery man etc.

I was just randomly thinking about using an office and I remembered this thread

josh, I know it's been a long time, but have you made the switch or any progress with your search for an office?

@Itchymoku , since starting this thread last year, I have been trading with a prop firm, so I am making the drive to their office every day. Even if I were not working at the firm I think it would still be a good idea to get a separate office space if you have family or distractions at home.
