I trade off of two different setups, primarily, believe it or not, I trDe from my car about 90% of the time. From there I have a dual monitor setup using a steering wheel laptop desk, an all leather mouse pad, a surface pro and my phone. Obviously all of the trading happens on the surface pro. The phone is really for a hotspot but often used to check FIO and other sites while trading. If I don’t feel like sitting down, with just a 90 degree turn of the surface pro, it’s now setup for standing mode.




My preferred trading station is my home setup.
2 24” monitors
Logitech G602 mouse (setup with hot keys for NinjaTrader)
Perixx keyboard
Samson Meteor mic
Logitech C920 webcam
Bose Companion 2 Series III speakers

My computer is one I built 4-5 years ago specifically for trading. I honestly couldn’t tell you the specifics of all the hardware but it does have:
Corsair Graphite case
Intel i7 processor
Gigabyte motherboard
16gb ram

Nope, not the bedroom! After a few years away from trading I am finally in a position to start looking at the markets again on a daily basis so back at it with a bang.

Laptop with extra screen for browsing and news, desktop with two screens for charting and execution.

A bit old and battered but getting the job done.

edit: No idea why one picture is upside down, it seems to depend on what device I look at it on!

This happens sometimes. The forum software is trying to determine the correct orientation of the picture. Usually it's right, and sometimes it gets it wrong.

One of those odd things that just happens....

Bob.

And I forgot: good phrase.

It talks about seizing opportunities.

When something does not come out how it would be desirable or we hope, it is probably an opportunity for something else, also in Trading.

Perhaps its a signal to do the opposite of what you normally do

Hello everyone!

Here is some info about my trading setup. The main trading setup runs a 49in Samsung Super Ultrawide, with a 34in LG Ultrawide, and 2 27in vertical Asus monitors.The PC is custom made running an i7-4790K Devils Canyon with a MSI GTX 980. The second setup is used for running trade the news and other news /software. It currently is running on an older Alienware x51 R2 with a 43in Samsung Super Ultrawide and a 50in Vizio TV.

I started trading about 5 years ago with ETFs, specifically UGAZ and DGAZ. This is my first year trading futures and so far they are my favorite! (ES, GC, CL, NG)

Hi all,

Was wondering which resolution is more appropriate for viewing “extended desktops “/ Split Screens ?

Also, since we are demoing with charts and figures/ numbers - which monitor technology is best :

IPS
TN
VA?

I’m assuming IPS due to color accuracy / text reproduction (less perfect for games due to lower Herz - but 96-99% SRgb ) - and I hear the other two are better for games 144-200 Hz - but may produce “burn -in”- so if Monitor areas stay the same for long - May produce artifacts.

Also 29” vs 34” , curved vs not - and anyone uses the SUPER WIDE SCREENS ? (I think they are like 6ft wide ?)

Looking forward for some real world input.
S.

The only issue i had was the cable to it. I found it must be an active or powered HDMI cable. An AOC HDMI cable otherwise the picture is not clear. Its a cheap 4K tv but the picture is perfectly clear on 4K resolution with the correct cable.

Hello friends,

Here is the trading station I use. Over the years I've tried many different setups and ultimately SIMPLE wins it all for me. The office is surrounded by a forest which I something I also found to be loving. Just going out quietly for a walk is a blessing.

Why am I entering?

I have tried many combines in the past but haven't been able to pass yet, however took the lesson and moved on. This time all the constant improvement will be with me to pass the Gauntlet. I will share the whole journey with you in a FIO journal and offer third of the gift card to the local dog shelter, so that the support goes to their well being as well.

Best,

M

Very good

Thank you @Big Mike and @Earn2Trade and for all who have voted! It means a lot to receive this support and as I promised I will journal my process and spend part of the gift card to share the FIO love.

Regarding the prize: My trading has considerably slowed down recently and I would like to ask @Earn2Trade if it would be possible to run a normal gauntlet where I have two months and slightly different ruleset, instead of the 100k mini, which requires much more of an aggressive trading style.

Greatly appreciated,

M

Shzhning,

Would you share what studies you are using on your 5 and 10 minute charts? Also the volume studies below?

Looks like a modified Ichimoku on the 5 min?

Thanks

I have simplified ichimoku (cloud only) on 5m, and upper/lower band in LBR paint bar study on 10m chart; also relative volume on both.

what is the cloud cover study on the 10 minute (this one doesn't look like an Ichimoku)? Also, the bar study over the relative volume...i think it's labeled QT(3,4)?

TIA

Hi humbled1, here're more details about my charts

cloud on 10m chart is upper/lower volatility band in LBR paint bar study.

QT is my own simplified version of TrendQuality study

...

this is the screen i am training on...

since i am new to day trading, i am hoping this kind of set up will help..

opinions welcome...

there are a couple of custom things i am trying to make
ergo my post asking...
as i would like to scan for certain things that these screens help with.


Hi @Artfldgr,

This is an interesting post, and since you said "opinions welcome," I'm sure that you will find some.

I should point out that this thread you have posted it in, "Battlestations: Show us your trading desks!" is meant for people to show actual photos of the physical desks they trade at, with their monitors and computers and all the cool hardware.... not their "desks" in the sense you have meant it, their chart layouts and setups.

There's nothing wrong with your post, it's just in the wrong place. If you skip back in the thread a page or two, you will see what I mean. (The posters who commented on charts in the posts just above yours were responding to questions about screens that showed on the photos of their monitors.)

One good thing you could do for this kind of post would be to start your own trading journal in the Trading Journals forum, here: https://futures.io/trading-journals/

Or, if you just want to put out the screenshot and your explanations for comment, you could open a thread in any of the other forums -- Traders Hideout is sort of a general-purpose one if nothing else comes to mind: https://futures.io/traders-hideout/

So, we would appreciate it if you reposted in a more appropriate location. It keeps the forum more organized and makes it easier for members to find things that interest them.

Thanks.

Bob.

Yup
cant argue... I realized TOO late...
if ya like you can kill the post (before they kill me)

@Artfldgr, If you want to repost it somewhere and not have to retype everything, I'll keep it up until about this time tomorrow so you can copy/paste.

Thanks for understanding.

Bob.

I know what you mean! I have a small desk these days, just two 27" monitors. It just depends on your style of trading!

Have both of Shark's programs (lifetime license) BlackBird and BloodHound.. They have given me permission to sell (which I can confirm) so all is good. Contact me with an offer. Also have the same for Trade The Plan (lifetime and all bells and whistles). Not trading actively anymore. Send a personal message and I will get back to you.

PS How can I save threads or subscribe to them here?

To subscribe, scroll up to the top of any page. Click on the button marked "Follow."

Also, in UserControlPanel ("UserCP") > Edit Options > Messaging and Notification > Default Thread Subscription Mode, you can choose to automatically add a thread to your subscribed list if you post to it (the default).

In UserControlPanel > Subscriptions you can view your subscriptions and remove any you don't want to keep.

Also to unsubscribe, scroll up to the top of any page where you are in a subscribed thread. Instead of a "Follow" button you will see "Unfollow."

Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to announce a new challenge event for March 2020: Battlestations! (with $1,500 in prizes)

With this event, we are encouraging members to share pictures of their trading desks. We will be giving away $1,500** in prizes in total, as described below.

Prizes:
  • 1st place: $500 of Shark store credit, or a $250 Amazon Gift Card
  • 2nd place: $300 of Shark store credit, or a $150 Amazon Gift Card
  • 3rd place: $150 of Shark store credit, or a $75 Amazon Gift Card
  • Everyone who posts a selfie* will receive a 50% off Elite Membership coupon code

These prizes are provided by @SharkIndicators, a site sponsor on futures io, and futures io is providing the Elite Memberships. Please thank @SharkIndicators for their contributions to our community, and for agreeing to sponsor the March Battlestations event!

* The 50% Elite Membership coupon code will be given to anyone who makes a qualifying post that includes a selfie. You can use the coupon code yourself, or give it away to a friend.

** The $1,500 prize amount is estimated, calculated by taking the SharkIndicators prizes and adding an estimated number of Elite Membership discount codes we anticipate giving away. Actual amount can only be determined after the event is over.

Here are the rules:
  • a) One of your photos must show the futures io logo on our website. Don't forget!
  • b) Take a selfie or have someone take a picture of you at your desk! Optional, but highly recommended!
  • c) The photo(s) need to be uploaded here on futures io. No linking to external sites. No videos.
  • d) You may submit multiple photos (please do!) -- but only your first qualifying post in this thread will be considered for the contest.
  • e) You are ineligible to win if you have previously won a Battlestations event within the last 12 months.
  • f) The contest period is March 1 to March 31, 2021. All decisions made by futures io are final.
  • g) Winners will be chosen by counting the numbers of "Thanks Received" on each qualifying post.

I am looking forward to seeing a lot of great trading desks! Please remember to follow the rules, and please remember to vote by hitting the "Thanks" button.





Thank you to @SharkIndicators as the site sponsors for this event.

For Elite Members, SharkIndicators also has two special offers: a) Receive a $150 discount on a BloodHound Ultimate, and b) Receive a $250 discount on a BlackBird trade manager.

Not to be combined with any other offer, one use per customer

Get more information & receive the SharkIndicators discounts:
Elite Members.

You can find all the available Elite Offers here:

Please visit SharkIndicator's website to learn more about their products and services:

Have a question about Shark's products? They have an AMA thread with Zac White (Co-Founder):


(Note: This post is written February 16th to let you guys know what is coming in March. But remember, don't submit your Battlestations post yet -- you need to wait until March to qualify for the prizes!)

Mike

Battlestations, March 2021 edition -- has begun! I look forward to seeing those trading desks!

Very neat and tidy!

Do you like the way your ultra-wide monitor displays the chart?

Also, is that a foot warmer?

Lookin good!

That's a lot of screen real estate. I recently replaced 4x 30" with 2x 43" and find that I don't use the edges of the 43's much. Wish I could rotate them from landscape to portrait but the stand doesn't allow it.

My neck hurts just thinking about looking at a 43 in portrait, but if its vesa then you could just use a cheap dual vertical monitor stand to mount it in portrait.

I love my monitor. I am a software developer who just started learning to trade this past year, so this setup is perfect for me. I normally have four charts up on one windows desktop and work stuff on another, then switch back and forth as needed.

Just a foot rest, but I do have a heater down there

Great setup for you!

I need a 4th monitor for news as I currently have to toggle off my big screen to access the news which is not good. My large screen is fed by my old pc which I use for outside of trading. And the trading PC is a standalone. So just a little monitor to keep an eye on the news would be very convenient.

Which 15.6 portable monitor is that? Brand?

Thank you for your help!

Well, here we go....my current setup for about the last two years:

4x 24" monitors on the right side, 2x 34" curved monitors on the left side connected to two different machines for different accounts and backup purposes.

My best investment last year was the purchase of my Herman Miller Embody chair, I never ever had any better chair.







Edit: I love a clean desk, IMO this is an important point for my trading without any distractions....

They both are very expensive hobbies to be sure!

Maybe the racing setup can be configured for NinjaTrader?? Go long when you press the gas, and exit the trade with brake? Left and Right wheel can control your profit targets and stops, plus is useful to hang on when the market moves quickly!

There are some aftermarket stands that will allow it, I had mine set up portrait for a while but I will tell you that you end up craning your neck to the sky to see it all, so thats why I put them back to landscape. I mainly use 2 actively and have the third set up for several different things...One of the things I have it for is if I have many different trades on at once the third will be where I put some of the trades that need on occasion attention to make sure they are still going the way you want.

I have been through like 6 different monitor set ups and this one is my favorite, but I can understand how it can be too much for some people

That's not a portable monitor, its an iPad. I use it mostly to watch streaming/news.

There you go my friend, special photos for you.
Most important monitor is the one underneath the big one. I use it to execute my orders and its plugged in pc on the right while the pc on left (behind the 3 monitor stack) run those 4 monitors. Big monitor is just to check some stuff, I don't look at it all the time. If you were worried about my ergonomics setup, I appreciate your concerns, thank you. Also, I'm almost 2m tall so ergonomics are totally fine here.
Hopefully I have answered your questions!
Take care.

There you go my friend, special photos for you.
Most important monitor is the one underneath the big one. I use it to execute my orders and its plugged in pc on the right while the pc on left (behind the 3 monitor stack) run those 4 monitors. Big monitor is just to check some stuff, I don't look at it all the time. If you were worried about my ergonomics setup, I appreciate your concerns, thank you. Also, I'm almost 2m tall so ergonomics are totally fine here.
Hopefully I have answered your questions!
Take care.

Hey Joe, it is a 4k TV. Mine is 50"
When i got it i was actually looking for a 32" monitor but prices were high and the TV was in clearance.
Its a simple model, samsung tu8000, but it does the job well for me.
