Last weekend, I was on a buying spree! Well, this time not in the markets but rather updating the hardware for trading purposes. I sometimes spend so many hours in front of the screen that my back starts to hurt. My trading room is near a window that overlooks a small lil garden. At times, with my kids running around and kicking soccer balls, it can get a little disturbing and my concentration, to tell you guys the truth had on a few occasions been affected. Also, there are certain months here in Singapore that we experience heat waves and temperatures of 37 to 38 degree that often have me wishing that I am living in Switzerland or something (Oh, how I miss the beautiful views and cool weather of Europe).

So, off I went last Saturday to purchase a set of wireless mouse and keyboard. A nicely bundled package from Logitech and code named Logitech MK320. Frankly speaking, the set fulfilled all my needs and expectations and with a new gold plated HDMI cable, I am now trading in my bedroom and relaxing on my bed. Attached to the other end of my Toshiba laptop that I bought 2 months ago is my 38 inc LCD television that now has transformed into my trading screen. :p

I don’t know whether having a trading screen in your abode is good or not, but seriously it has allowed me to escape the heat outside and enjoy the cool air-conditioned environment of my room.

I am now thinking of adding another 38 inch LCD television in my room. The plan is to have a screen for the charts and another for watching the latest news updates from CNBC and Bloomberg.

Also, for your info, I am updating this post using my wireless keyboard and the LCD TV in my room.

Technology Rocks!
