if you do dont you get bored? if so how do you deal with it?
Working from home takes a lot of discipline. Setting tasks for yourself might help. And when there's genuinely nothing to do, taking a walk is a great way to refresh yourself. But since there's always something to do, have you tried any webinars or educational sites?

Re: Dealing with boredom

I use to work from home for many years, tbh, there were to many distractions for me, and getting that home /work balance right difficult. Renting an office was the best decision I made, when I get home, works where I left it.

Play the guessing game. i.e: I have no idea where that pair is going so I'm not trading it but I'll guess and see if I'm right. Oh and read. Lots of reading.

Practice - iota has said it, though treating it as just a recreation. Practice your good systems, play with new ones. Practice.

I trade in a room where people donīt have their heads stuck up their asses.

And no, I am not telling you where because otherwise it will get filled with people from above sentence.

I also spend a little bit of time reading TTW amongst napping and going to the Sauna.

I trade stocks full time, to be honest the forex fills in those dull moments but I am becoming more attracted to forex. If I can earn consistently in forex I may make the switch.

To kill boredom here there is scalping.
