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.

It doesn't need to be that high end really. I have an AMD FirePro W600. It's an old card but supports 6 mini DisplayPort with one card.

Avoid HDMI if possible. DisplayPort is superior for monitors.

I go for a 40" 4K monitor coming days for the big picture.

Buy the Philips LED-backlit LCD Display BDM4065UC/00

4K monitors make no sense for trading. The benefits of 4K will be lost with charts and all the DPI scaling necessary in the OS. For watching movies, fine, but otherwise I don't see it.

I have a 28" 4K monitor. I agree the resolution is to high. 40" 4K should be okay. At the moment it's difficult get one. It seems to be huge demand for this kind of monitors.

I will get one as soon as possible to get the big picture of patterns with alot of data so I can nail the targets.

At last I get my 40" 4K monitor. It's just crazy, really crazy. I really like this size.
If you want a bigger monitor, you should consider this.
And check your GraphicsCard for support 4K.

This just make my day.

Another consideration is the Samsung S34E790C.

S34E790C | SAMSUNG Levant

It seems to have a more pronounced curve over the Dell/LG displays as well. It's also a VA panel, not IPS, so it will have better/deeper blacks with less or no light bleed issues. However, VA also suffers from worse viewing angles than IPS as well as higher input lag. Input lag means nothing for a trader, but the viewing angles might be a concern when using multiple monitors side-by-side.

I would be concerned about the scaling. What OS are you running? Did you have to adjust the DPI scaling?

Can you post a few pictures that show the size of this monitor relative to something we can relate to, like a keyboard in front? And can you also post a closer picture that shows the font size for icons on the desktop?
