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 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.

Great idea, hope you will have them soon on your desk !

About the video cards, two GTX 960 will be more than sufficient unless you want to do some hardcore gaming….

Alex

My understanding is HDMI 2.0 and 4:4:4 is only possible with 970 or 980.

I might do some gaming...

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.

Did a little bit of research on that, What I found so far is, the GTX 970 should work with 4:4:4

see following link:

I found this video very informative on using an HDTV as a monitor:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyJpaJvwlH8

and his set up with 3 40" TVs seems like the ideal set up (if not over the top) for a trader:

Btw, the key is a HDTV with HDMI 2.0 connection in order to support 60Hz (as it was pointed here before), and of course a new generation video card that supports HDMI 2.0 like the GTX980.

BTW, looking at his videos it seems that things are a bit too small still.

I wonder if using a bit bigger TV would be better. One could consider something like this one: LG 49UB8200: 49" Class (48.5" Diagonal) UHD 4K Smart LED TV | LG USA (and IPS!)

Dream set up?

what about these 40in monitors being curved rather than having them at angles? is that something you guys would be interested in? my issue is i want to move to a motorized sit/stand desk and finding something that is big enough or L shaped to do the trick. the weight isnt an issue anymore as these screens are light and most of these desks are rated pretty high for the amount of weight they can push. its usually over 300lbs on the good desks..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I purchased the curved 40" Samsung, and a wall mount to help me get the angle just right.

Amazon.com: SAG FREE Swivel TV Wall Mount for 23 to 50 inch TV's 104-1153: Electronics

After seeing the triple monitor setup, now I am leaning towards that

My concern as well. Will have one here in two weeks, then can better "simulate" the effect of two, or even three. I will definitely have at least two. Knowing me, probably end up with three.

i know you will, but let us know all of the dimensions and what not and what it would possibly look like. this is a ways out for me anyways. actually i wonder what it would be like with 1 curved one in the middle and a flat one on either side to fit a desk better than the half moon 3 curved ones would create.

just looking at the geekdesk max, you can get the motorized frame only and you can put your own desktop on it. i like the the one they have but might like the 'UpDesk PowerUp' desktop as its curved a little in the middle. i have emailed them to see if you can order just their desktop.
