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.

Dell UltraSharp 34 Ultrawide Monitor - U3415W | Staples®

That is a great price. I really want a new monitor setup, but haven't decided what to do yet. Even at that price, I just am not sure.

I think anyone that wants to run two or less of those monitors would be well served to buy now. My problem is I am trying to run three of them, and not convinced about the total dimensions and viewing angles (being realistic).

Read the curved monitor thread. I would recommend against the Phillips at this point.

Just got the Philips, and it is really nice.

I was looking for a single screen with lots of content, and this fits the bill. I previously had tried a 50" 4K, and it was too much screen, so went back to two 32" side by side - I do not mind the bezel, as I usually consider the two screens separate content anyway.

Now the 40" is a nice size for the 4K pixels, and it does not have to be so far away to see properly.

The only down side, is the price is still coming down fast. I suspect you will be able to get similar monitors for a lot cheaper if you are willing to wait a bit.

Personally, I would not get two of these side by side.

I ordered three of the Philips for 676€ each from Amazon Germany. Can't see any benefit from the curved monitors as in comparison the text and numbers are clearer on the Philips with DP connection and they are way more expensive here (1199€ the Samsung ju 40") and (!!!) you would need separate video cards for each as they need HDMI connection to operate with 60Hz. I called the technical Support from EVGA and they confirmed that one GTX 960 4 GB with 3 display ports is enough for the three 4K Philips (no gaming, only charts). So a 12k setup with 4:4:4 panels and the smallest bezels you can get for 2200€ is not so bad I think....:-)

Just bought a LG Electronics 40UB8000 40-Inch 4K Ultra HD 60Hz Smart LED TV and loving it, still working on how to arrange my other monitors but here is a pic.

Phillips BDM4065UC


Hi Guys:

I recently got a extremely good deal on a Phillips BDM4065UC. A friends company bought 100 of them and I was able to piggy back my order into there's. Needless to say it wasn't my first choice, but I couldn't turn down the price.

So far so good. I'm getting use to and playing with the scaling to get the right settings for my eyes. Previously had 4x24 monitors along with a 32 IPS in Portrait mode. I'll follow up in the coming day's after I have sometime to get use to this monitor and give my full opinion.

Picture of a basic layout, still playing around with this to ensure I don't waste space.
