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've been considering doing a very similar setup - possibly with curved monitors - what kind of stand(s) did you decide on?

how many monitors do we need for trading?

I saw some traders used multiple monitors for trading and I never do this .So I am wondering why these people use multiple monitors. Anyone can share your experience on this ? What advantages ? How can we use multiple monitors for trading ?
Thanks.

I have many things running. They don't need constant eye balling, but they need to run and put them on my desktop that spans over 6 monitors. Once you get used to that, it's difficult to work on a smaller space.

For this case ,If we are travelling then we may face some problems when trading on a smaller screen e.g. laptop.

I don’t have any knowledge of computers and the configurations which are needed for buying/building a good “trading machine”. Could you share your specified configuration with us and the rough budget (without the price of the screens)? I am thinking of buying a new computer.

Thank you very much in advance.
