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.

Hi Mike

I have make a rough drawing to estimate with a angle of 150 degree.
Measurement is Cm and In

My estimate for how deep your desk need to be "40 Minitor ASM Desk.gif"

Wow, thank you very much for your time on this. I will take a look after the close.

@jta3, are you suggesting I need to be 70cm from the outer edge of the monitors (in my chair)?

That seems extreme. Right now my desk is roughly 150cm wide, and the outside monitors are at the extreme edges. I sit only maybe 10cm from the edge of the desk (my legs are under the desk).

If I understood your question right that you don't need to turn your head to see both monitors. Then yes.

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

I don't mind turning my head, I have to do that even now (turn my head/neck). What I don't want is to have to literally turn my body because it is too far to the extreme side.

I will use your measurements at 150 degrees and see what I can come up with from here. The main thing I was having trouble with was the depth of the desk, you've helped with that.

Thank you.
