Favorite food for daytraders

  1. I think I will place an empty plastic bottle by my trading terminal to accomodate calls to nature. That way I can drink as much lemonade as I want and still go for a piss, while continuing to monitor my positions. But I must label the lemonade and the urinal bottle carefully, otherwise I will truly be taking resource recycling to the extreme.

  2. oh candle!
    that is nasty my friend!
    I actually have a funny story about that.

    It involves a crowded college bar, a long line for the men's room, an empty pitcher, and a girl who insited that she had left her pitcher of beer near my friends and I.

    Couldn't let that one slip by without letting you know that you gave me a hearty sized chuckle. :)

    Besides normal eating I keep a water container near my trading desk so that I can get my 8 glasses of water a day (or thereabouts). Gotta keep the system flushed, y'see. If I'm in a trade and the price is near my stop I hold it until I'm out of the trade. If the price is moving favorably then I'll put in a trailing stop, and head for the head.

    I heard from fellow traders who take Viagra before trade to spike up(in another word: energize!)

  7. Usually just strong coffee amd sublingual vitamin B complex. Occasionally some fruit juice. The sublingual vitamins get into the system quickly. After the market is closed I like to cook pasta and seafood, serve it with good wine. The more people at dinner the better my wife and I like it.

    Over the road truckers often use a "pickle jar" to avoid too many costly stops. But a tired driver on a dark night and not a car in sight for a mile and you can guess how many times a reach for the Snapple turns out to be a drink from the pickle jar! Just glad I work during the day and after a good night sleep!
