What is your primary trading workstation?



Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

As I swing trade stocks I could place trades off my phone if I had to.

It is hard to find the Truth when you start your search with a preconceived notion of what the Truth will be.

Not really any of the listed options.
Im trading ~90% of the time on a server from speedyservers through RDC on the phone.
Only got one chart open though, so not too much screen estate needed. Platform is NT7.

I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.
