Any alternative to trading from a desk?

  1. Hi,

    Is there any alternative to trading from a desk with monitors?
  2. You could try a PDA if small and mobile is what you are looking for.

    Or you can call your broker over the phone to place orders - something a little nostalgic.

    Hook up your PC to your Plasma TV and trade from the couch with a wireless keyboard.
    WIFI on your laptop @ the pool works well under an umbrella!
  4. wifi laptop + la-Z-boy + offsite blade-server on fiber which does the actual TA / placement.
  5. laptop under a palm tree on the beach

  6. Crawl under the desk.

    Or try a more open space (See attachment)

    A. A large inheritance.

    B. A large winning lottery ticket.

    C. A job.
  8. Honestly, I am thinking of trading from the couch, as my back hurts each day, sit there 30 min before AO till 1 or 2 hours after the end)

    Planning to move, that's why I am seeking suggestion on something more comfortable than a desk.
  9. I try to stay on my feet as much as possible. I think it helps keep the energy level up. I also have three different chairs I use to keep my back from getting agitated.

    I think the ultimate would be a round room completely covered in monitors with a glass ceiling to let natural light in.

    one and only time I rode a taxi in New York all the driver did for the whole journey was place orders with his broker on a mobile.
