What does your trader father want this Father’s Day? Cash. Period. And yes, so does the mailman and really anyone else who will happily accept the one gift that is always the right size and color.
But Martha Stewart says that giving cash is tacky, and let’s face it, she not only knows about gift giving etiquette, she knows a thing or two about trading (albeit the insider kind). So here are five last minute gifts you can order online to score some points with those fathers’ out there.
1. Trading Places DVD -Amazon $3.99
Perhaps no movie is more quoted by traders than this 1983 classic starring Dan Akroyd and Eddie Murphy. However, it’s Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche who steal the film as the Duke Brothers. This is a timeless trading classic that can be watched over and over.
2. Aeron Chair – Herman Miller $729
Is the trader in your life glued to the screens, analyzing and trading the markets? To help them better cope with all that sitting, consider one of the pro-grade chairs from Herman Miller like the Aeron. Their backs will thank you.
3. Replica Stock Ticker Tape Machine Bull Market Gifts.com $49.99
The ticker tape era is long gone, but this Replica Stock Ticker Tape Machine is a great nostalgia piece perfect for any trader’s desk or office. Nicely detailed with an antiqued finished, this ticker comes completed with wrinkled up ticker tape for an authentic effect. Just like a value stock, it seems more expensive than its price of $50.
4. Triple Monitor LCD Display Array Multi Monitors.com $695
More is definitely better when it comes to monitors. Save the trader in your life the frustration of trying to cram multiple charts on to one screen or having a hodgepodge of screens cluttering up their desk. This triple monitor stand can make even the retail trader feel like a hedge fund tycoon.
