    Just a simple poll to see where most active daytraders trade from. I'm expecting the vast majority to trade from home.

    Myself, I trade from my office. I initially thought about trading from home, but didn't think I would like the daily isolation and lack of personal interaction.

    For those who trade from home, what do you consider to be the benefits and detriments? Yeah, yeah, I know trading in your underwear. But beyond that what is it?

    First half of trading day I am trading from my office, then at lunch time (8pm here) I go home and continue from there.

    I consider getting dressed for work putting on clean Adidas tear away Sweats! The snaps make 'em easier to remove for the other session.
