Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

So with the 43 inch Philips do you need to upgrade the graphic card? If so what do you need? Thanks

No, I run using the internal graphics on the Intel processor (i7-6700). You do not need a powerhouse to display charts.

I actually drive two 4K monitors from the processor, directly thru the motherboard with no graphics card.

I had problems with the i7-6700K driving the 4K monitor. Maybe they fixed the problems with the driver, but it wasn't compatible with my LG 31MU97-B.

I bought the NVIDIA Quadro K1200. Excellent product, good performance without requiring a new PSU (it drives only 45W max) and can run 4 x 4K monitors. It also comes with a monitor management software which I like.

What monitors are those? Are they turned sideways? If so, how do you rotate the your images?

They are philips, they can be turned with the standard feet.
In windows you then rotate and expand your desktop...
