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.

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.

The curve is pretty subtle. The angles he has the outside monitors at is too radical for me (based on the video, I think). So if I do end up with three, mine would be pushed back slightly further. I hope I don't need to do DPI scaling to 125%.

Will try with two first. Two 40's 3840x2160 (7680x2160 = 16.58M pixels) are more than I have today with (3) 2560x1600 30's (7680x1600 = 12.28M pixels). So two may be enough screen real estate, the question is if I can handle it being "weird" with the border dead center.

i totally agree with that, the line in the middle would drive me nuts. those monitors in that video are curved? im not really sure how one would figure out how 3 curved screens of that size on one of the desktops im looking at would work.

The ones in the video are flat I am 90% sure, I would need to re-watch the video or check the specs to confirm though. The ones I am using (Samsung JU6700) are curved.

ill just have to go off of your findings on when you get yours and if 3 curved would fit on a 78x30 surface.

Interesting Video, Thanks.

I have 4 Dell 30"'s and a Dell 29". My primary monitor's are the two center 30"s and the 29". The outside monitors (on different PCs) are angled like he does in this video ~ one at about 45 degrees and one about 90 degrees. I must say I can't really see what's on those (outside) monitor's unless I turn my head to look at them, they are two far out of my peripheral vision. Maybe that's because I have them angled so much but with 2x 30's in the center they need to be angled or they'd be so far away they'd be almost useless.

The combined bevel's on mine are just over 2" and to be honest I've never really noticed it. But then I almost always have different things on each screen so maybe that's why.

My office is 15'x10' and I have a built in 30"deep U shaped desk. The inner edge of the desk is a total of 23.5'. The section of the desk you can see in the photo is 9.5' across. You can't see it but I have more computers to the right of me (back up system) and to the left of me (sim setup - I never trade and test on the same box) but those are just single 30" monitor's and not multi-monitor like the main setup.
