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 use an Nvidia GeForce 9500 with dual DVI outs. Runs 2 24" Dell monitors flawlessly. My PC is a stock Dell Inspiron. I upgraded to an LSI 400W power supply, the video card, and another 4GB or RAM.

Intel HD 3000

I am trading with my HP EliteBook 6930p 1440/900 and an old external Eizo screen (via VGA) with 1280/1024. And I don't want more resolution or a PC. It is used for trading only with Ninjatrader, 15 charts with one or two simple indicators each.

I want to replace the laptop with the HP EliteBook 8460p (and still use the external monitor).

Does it make sense to use one with the entry level radeon 6470m or is the intel HD 3000 for trading only OK? (less heat, less battery, cheaper)

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.
