Trading is a lonely business.


I have thought about this also.  Maybe challenge to breakeven.


Keep me post.

Subject: [fairfaxtraders] Trading From Home vs. Office environment


Hello Fairfax Traders.
This is not a solicitation. I am looking for opinions, advice, suggestions.
Trading from home got you feeling isolated and out of touch?

I have been trading full-time from my home (basement) for about 6 months now. I find it to be rather lonely, even though I have access to trader chat rooms & audio floor feeds.  Remote trading is not for everyone, as some traders prefer the structure and atmosphere of an office environment.
With that said, I am considering opening a "trading floor" in downtown DC. Is this idea crazy?  The concept is simple, provide technology (ideally traders would use their own computer and trading software), information services (audio floor feeds), and social collective thinking related to the financial markets.  Basically the same set up as a proprietary trading desk, less the capital contribution.   Just looking to offer other traders a chance to interact, share ideas, network, and socialize in a "live" environment.

Any traders that have experienced similar concern or have advice, interest, suggestions, opinions on the feasibility of this concept please share. 
Thanks in advance for your time.
Fred Barnes
