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

It seems like you used the monitors in portrait mode and wonder you don't get any hologram effect when you view the screen from a slight angle?

When I say hologram I mean lines get a little fuzzy and colors get a little diffused.

I tried it with mine and I couldn't stand it. If your new dell monitors are ok with portrait mode I want to get a couple too.

There are definitely no issues with the monitors in portrait mode. Make sure you have an up-to-date video card as well, it could be your video card creating artifacts if it doesn't support the resolution very well. Any video card with an HDMI or DisplayPort connector would be new enough, and you are better off using them vs any type of DVI converter.

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.

Could any multi-monitor setup expert tell me if I could do this?

I'm trying to have 3 monitors with 2 side monitors in landscape and 1 center in portrait.
2 sides are 23" and center one will be 24"
I have ATI Radeon 5570 card according to device manager in control panel.

I searched youtube and all they have is either all 3 in landscape or all in portrait.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can rotate each monitor individually. The issue will be that moving from one monitor to the next will not be smooth because the resolutions and sizes are inconsistent. So if your mouse is in the middle of your screen in the middle monitor, and you move it perfectly horizontally to the right or left, it will "jump" when it hits the outside monitor.

Different size monitors

Futures Edge on FIO
FWIW,
My monitors are different sizes on each end, but Nvidia Control Panel allows me to adjust them so when my mouse crosses over from one to the other, it remains on the same line. Not sure if all cards have this capability though.

...and you move it perfectly horizontally to the right or left, it will "jump" when it hits the outside monitor.

If the difference between resolutions is high the mouse will be "stuck" in the middle monitor. You'll need to move it down till it "jumps" to the other monitor.
I have this problems. When I move my mouse from the 21.5" into the 15" the mouse need to come down more than half the 21.5" height so it can move into the 15".

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

? about computer overclocking

I have 2 intel xeon e5520@2.27ghz processors and 24 gb ram and 4 nvidia quadro fx 380 video cards with 8 dell u2410 monitors. I been reading everyone talking about overclocked processors and was wondering if that would help with the speed problom I seem to be having with ninja running six charts with 4 to five indicators on them. If i switch insturments for example for es to cl the ninja my frezz up. Even with just one insurment loaded on all the charts ninja is slugish. having to wait a few seconds at times after i right click for the drop down menu to apear. I was wondering if cranking up my cpu some might help this since while ninja is running in the task manager window in cpu history I see only a hand ful of cores working. Everything eles on the computer has no problem even while ninja is acting slugish and I was thinking of going to a water cooled system to quitten down my computer does anyone have any sugestions on the best system. any info would be appricatied.
