One thing I always look out for is better ways to communicate data from the markets and my application to my brain... which is basicaly what we see on the computer monitor.

I look at what individual traders do for visualization, and I look at at what different software/platform vendors think is important to traders.

To start what I hope will be an interesting thread, I present my two primary desktops. NoCharts is what is left on basically 24/5 to test whatever strategies I'm testing (I'm not trading live with Ninja right now), and Main is what I use to "eyeball" check my execution logic and watch the news.

NoCharts is all business, and as the NT log can't be opened as the same time as the Strategies tab, I keep the Output window open and try to code things so it is relevant to my trades and management of risk.

Mine is a four sceen setup (small and cheap 19" displays), and PrtScn shows it all.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours .

I just had to rebulid this today as NT7b9 hung up (not a crash) after I added 6E & NQ workspaces. Have not tried running more than one workspace at a time. Maybe later today, in replay.

This workspace has 4 views - 8k volume, 6 Range, & Day all using ADXVMA Sharky paint. Also, an 8k GomVolumeLadder.

Really like having the T&S in the center of the action.

I knew we had an old thread around here.

But since this new thread has taken off, and this old thread never did, I am going to close this old thread in order to prevent a split topic.

New thread here:


Please re-post there.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
