Trading room moves outdoors



For those who asked about my (very simple) configuration : here is the outdoor trading room in my garden (from May to Νovember). An ordinary Vaio (i5 proc with 4gb ram, Win7/64-bit, main and backup connections) connected to a 23'' monitor (with 3 NT charts, DOMs, spreadsheets) and a ipad for news and browsing, plus a pair of good loudspeakers for listening to music (all the time). And Rocky, the pupil.

I am well protected against the rain and the sun. My only worries are a few ants who fell off the pine tree above and try to find warmth inside my laptop...

I love outdoor life and I am a better trader outside. A lot of ideas come to my mind, here, under my pine tree..

Oh! Nice setup! Do you live in Greece? I like labradors so much. Next year i will have one when my kid will have 1 year and be able to walk:-)

P.S. I'm also scalping 6E for now as 1 of my strategies. But is seems much more difficult than watch and analyze your charts with entries and exits post factum.

Nice atmosphere. Trading and living in nature. Must be very peaceful and calm.

Basically one laptop carries all the burden of trading. I thought you might be carrying 2-3 computers, 2 TV screens and 2-4 computer screens.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi Ingvar. My own is not a labrador, is of mixed blood, a fine little bastard, but i love him a lot! I found him on a mountain, starving. I don't like much pedigree dogs. But most people like pedigrees. Even the Pakistani boy who worked in the garden today told me that my dog is "shit", no pure race..lol

Great setup and nice story about rescuing the dog from the mountain.

Trading is so much fun doing outdoors with the clear atmosphere, but it’s obvious that we need to make sure we trade with comfort and only then we will be able to work it in our favor. I like it fair bit with OctaFX broker using their brilliant cTrader mobile platform or even Web trader, so that enables me to trade from anywhere and anytime with absolute ease and comfort and obviously brings so much rewards to me in big way.
