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.

I have 1 new monitor samsung 24''
S24A450MW - OVERVIEW | SAMSUNG
I need another 4 monitors, which do you recommend (native DisplayPort)?
give me an example of cables that I need to run the best of my graphics card?
passive adapters?
active adapters?
an image to understand what they are and the difference between passive and active adapters?
HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more!
in my case with the Samsung S24A450MW that cable should I buy?

I am aware of my ignorance and I apologize for asking too many questions that I offer.

Thanks to all those who want to help. SEW

Just make sure the other 4 monitors have native displayport, then you don't need any active adapters, then THESE cables or similar are fine.

As for the adapter for your Samsung monitor, I might have an ADAPTER lying around, I'll have a look.

The Asus seem to be native DP which is good. But I don't know how good they are and if they are compatible with your stand....I don't know a lot about monitors other than I love mine


You can't use 4 of the Samsung you have as that doesn't support DP and if you want to use more than 2 non-DP monitors you need active adapters costing around $100 each....so get monitors with native DP .

You can still use your Samsung and 3 new ones if they fit together nicely, compatibility is no issue, you just need an adapter for the Samsung.

If the money is no issue, I find it always nicer to have identical monitors, but as you already have one, that is rather luxury than necessity....

You only need active adapters if they are not native DP (DisplayPort)! If they are, you are fine...
I wouldn't play around with anything else than DP (except for the one monitor you have, that is).

No, for some obscure reason you need 3 for 4 monitors...and 5 for 6 monitors.
But trust me, you are very likely to run into trouble with any configuration where more than one monitor is not native DP.....at least that is my experience.
Also you wouldn't save a lot if you had to buy 5*$30 adapters to keep the monitor you have as opposed to replacing that....

My experience as well. Ended up just getting new DisplayPort monitors to solve all the adapter problems of non-DP monitors.

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.
6)

In general the Dell U2412M looks fine to me, but I cannot say anything about quality (don't forget: viewing angles) or price....
I also don't know if the Dell and your Samsung will fit onto that stand together as their dimensions are slightly different.
