Welcome to

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.

I got a pc recently from cyberpower and am pretty happy with it. I was able to customize all the parts and the price was competitive. I have used customer service once so far and the experience was good.

I purchased a trading computer about a year ago from Trading Computers and I am super happy with the performance and the exceptional support. Then again i use to use Dell and its like switching from a Nissan to a Ferrari. Another place i hear that good is "i buy power" but never tried them.

Hopw this helps.

Day Trading Fool: I am looking to buy a new system with multiple monitors - Wanted to check what you finally ended up getting?

I went for broke and bought a top-of-the-line Alienware Area 51. I opted for liquid cooling, i7 960, 64-bit OS, and dual SLi with nVidia GTX 295's (which I run in non-SLi for three monitors). Yes - a lot of money and probably not neccesary for trading, but I haven't looked back. I purchased the beast this past July.

I liked it so well I ended up placing an order for a similar laptop this past January. It weighs a little under 20 lbs and drains the battery in about an hour. I use the computers for things other than trading (I run some processor intensive simulations and play the occasional game) - but the laptop was overkill and is a beast to carry around.

Good luck!
