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.

-- Big Mike

Here is my current six monitor setup.

I am not real happy with it. It was inexpensive, but...

So I am probably going to just get six new U2412M monitors from Dell. I already have the HD 5870 Radeon.

It is very dark red, not at all what it looks like in the camera photo.

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.

may i ask what you are displaying on that monster? i run 4x24" and for trading one product, it suffices for my needs.

on a side note: you might want to get ultramon, with it you can select different wallpapers for each screen (something windows still can't do natively)

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

I own UltraMon and Display Fusion. I prefer Display Fusion, but the wallpaper is not important to me because there are always apps open (except for when I took the camera photo).

Top left monitor is email primarily, I get a ton of email.

Bottom left monitor is web browser, mainly for futures.io (formerly BMT).

The other four monitors are six to eight charts and my DOM, trade position window.

thank you for answering. email and browser screens reduce actual charting space, makes sense now.
did not even know about DisplayFusion, will look into it.

The reviews pretty much put them equal, and the HP was less expensive at $290 shipped, but I felt the Dell was the way to go.

(In comparison they still see a ton of value in the Core i7-2600K and others.)
