I built this setup in February. I was very concerned it wouldn't be powerful enough to drive the whole thing. But it does a great job. Plus I can pack up the laptops with my chart package and trading platform and head to the hotel next to a place I like to paddle on the Mississippi River.


How are you running the multi monitors?

Nice

how to post a picture. I wanted to share a brilliant piece of software. Like a dumbass I added a new machine without thinking about how an additional mouse and keyboard would screw things up and get in the way. My neighbor, who is a brilliant guy, suggested Synergy. This is an open source program that is complimentary...same as free...that allows you to control multiple computers with a single mouse and keyboard.

Here is the real trick. I was able to download, install, configure and use this software without any help at all. I have no contact or relationship with the guys there except to say they have improved my desk and made my life easier.

Hi @wldman. I used synergy for awhile across multiple screens, but my experience was less than favorable. Most of the time it worked well but about once a week or so the mouse would freeze requiring a reboot. I didn't want this trading futures.

If you have problems with it and want a more permanent solution you could consider a multi-head graphics card. Once I put these in and didn't have to mess around with Synergy I was very happy and not had one single problem since. I'm using this:

NVIDIA® Quadro® NVS 450 Professional Graphics Solution

So for 4 screens you would need one of these and two for 8 screens. Make sure you have 2 PCI-e slots. I only have one of these and 2 x 2 gaming cards for 8 screens. I could do this because my motherboard has 3 PCI-e slots and had the gaming cards anyway. You could also use 2 x2 existing video/gaming cards for 4 screens if you have 2 x PCI-e slots. This would be the cheapest solution and Windows 7 handles it flawlessly.

Cheers
DJ

Yeah, most of the time it's very serene and quiet, ideal for trading really.

@artemiso,

Were all these banknotes supposed to help you for on-the-fly currency conversions?

Hey guys... I came accross this ad this morning. I dont know much about the actual monitors but it seems like a pretty good deal as a startup for your desk. Tech.Woot

It could be usefull to some people.

here's my current setup -

trades all done on a HP workstation with 6 monitors (I mostly really just use 3 nowadays, bought the 6 setup when I first began to trade as I thought the more the merrier ;-) ), an iMac for all internet/chat/forum stuff, and my business manager's (wife) pc which also doubles up as a spare trade station (with a separate mobile Wi-Fi connection in case).

I do have some laptops hanging around for when the sun is shining and I want to remote into my trade workstation from the garden although in London, that doesn't happen too often..!

Cheers
Bry

Anyone have experience with Satillite Internet, like reliability when wanting to trade when on the road? (like in my RV in the mountains?)

Seen some sat recievers for TV, and 6 mps for internet, but I reason this is outmoded. The only other alternative is linking with a DSL or Cable at a campground hard wired...would prefer the independent route tho.

Maybe someone has addressed this on the forum under a thread with which I am unfamiliar?

There was one of them in Khao Lak, but all positions went under water in December 2004.

I think that using a satellite would result in a long lag time from when you click the mouse to when order is executed.

There are numerous threads on this subject, but this is not needed. Geostationary satellites are floating at a distance of 36,000 km. This means that the absolute minimum distance the signal has to travel for a round trip (data feed from exchange to your PC then order execution back to exchange) is 4 x 36,000 km or 144,000 km. The speed of light being something like 300,000 km/sec, this distance will introduce a lag of 500 milliseconds (half a second).

This will have a negative impact on your fills.

How about wireless data link? Its not like a hardwire DSL or Cable modem, but how about speeds there?

I supsect drop service could be a problem.

I plan to take an extended road trip next summer...at least, thats the plan. I can keep in touch with my office from the road, as my RV will have a desk and computer. To work while the wife and daughter and her friend are at the beach. Might wheel back up north for a week mid summer, then head off to the other coast. take in some fetivals as well as AOPA in Oshcosh...

Want to set up a mobile office...

There is another thread about this too, but I can't find it at the moment.

Here is a pic of my desk.



More details here:



Mike

just curious, do you use one of those heavy metal mounting braces for the six monitors?

I bought a three 24" monitor mounting brace, and its so heavy, that it itself would tip the desk over, not counting mounting the monitors on it. So the problem becomes, what to rest / place the monitors upon (fortified desk), instead of most of these assemble yourself, so called, computer desks.

did you have same or similar problem?

Been through this gag, baby

I settled on my iPhone data connection linking my PC with a remote desktop (VPS) from @sam028.
Your stops and targets will be safe from the usual cellular problems. I have not tested fills live, but
SIM seemed fine. I am not a fast trading scalper however, so I can spare a few hundred milliseconds.

For Gawd's sake man .... spend time with your daughter while you can ...

An old preacher once told me, "TMFT ... I've been a minister for over 50 years. Many a time I was called out in the middle of the night ....to minister to a parishioner on his death bed .... and you know ... in all those years ... not once ... did he pull me close to hear him gasp with his dying breath ... " Preacher ... I just wish I had spent more time with my job...."

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

My daddy always said, "Every day above ground is a good day!"

They love the beach...i am allergic to the sun.

They will be with me on the road otherwize...

I want to travel next May to August... the 3 of us on the road. Will be the last chance, as here last year of high school is next year. But we will have to bring a friend of hers with us. But I have to keep in touch with the office. I can also fly back home commercially if I really need to, but going to work that out.

I figure a month out, a few days back...like that. But I have to connect to the office while on the road.

This is a small office I rent in downtown - I used to trade from home but the office is good, it gets me out of my house and gives me some separation between work and play. Thanks for the thread.

Here is the monitor set up of a trading school specializing on the education of high frequency traders. The left chair is for the pupil, the right one for the instructor, who is already waiting for you.

lol, those are just external hard drive enclosures set upright on the long desk with their AC adapters strung alongside. Probably used to make it look not so bare in the split-second view. Probably the displays of the array of "mini-monitors" are CGI. At least Batman shut down the "HFT array" in the end, i.e. what the Freeman character called "immoral!"

I recall in the last episode of "Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles", the supercomputer proto-skynet array they were trying to find was just an eSATA connected 4drive bay RAID enclosure (which they put a few extra LED or christmas lights on) they probably borrowed from an IT dept. The T-800 robot also had a typical thickly covered eSATA cable ("cord" they called it) attached.

I think I could get close, but its been a while since I actually bought any of this stuff new.....I have owned all of it at one time except the Mackie monitors....owned several pairs of the Mackie powered subs and tops for live sound though....great stuff for smaller gigs....

Hi,

Here is a pic of my desk:



With 4 monitors, I use 2 old graphic cards (Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT) and with the two last monitors I use 2 USB adapters Xeo monitor for multi display.
I fixed 5 monitors 20” with wall mount bracket.
The central monitor is 24”stand on the table.

I have a black wooden plate and two stands like Fat Tails not because I’m tall (in fact I’m little) but because I use a battery back up and a lot of cables.




Hum in fact my desk is never so clean...

I see you are in Denver, I rent a space up here in Westminster, CO. where I live. The office is the only way to go and no more having to intervene in the "pre-preschool" brawls between the wife and daughter

@Rayzor, I have considered doing this many times before. If I may ask, how much do you pay per month? Obviously this will depend on location, I'm just trying to get a ballpark for this size space, as it looks quite like what I'm looking for.

@Massive l, some great gear you have there. What a great way to trade. Used to have some of those exact Mackies. Great sound. Love the NS10s. A friend of mine use to have them years ago. A real classic. I'm rockin da house with some Tannoy DMT 15s (downsized from 215s) and DMT 12s mk2 (as my trading speakers) with these TAD 4001s horns with 1601c bass drivers running active at 112db. Even with 5 watts I can make the windows shake. Zero distortion....

TAD 2402 + ET 703 - YouTube

Cheers
DJ

I rent from a property manager/group called Regus, they are all over the world. I committed to a 1 year lease and got like 180 square feet for $400 a month, I have master blaster Comcast Business Class Internet that is an additional $96. The $400 includes all the coffee I can drink as well. Check in your area, I bet there is a Regus property there. I looked at other places in my area that offered even lower rates, but they were kinda' ghetto and offered poor security, one of them included free Comcast Internet.....that you shared w/ 20 people and at least the landlord was up-front about the fact it was NOT secure. I have a lot of dough invested in my stuff and didn't want to come in and find it gone. Besides, trading is no walk in the park; why not treat yourself to a nice office? So worth it! Oh yeah, I almost forgot: The high dollar Herman Miller furniture and commercial grade chair that has saved my back was included in the rent.

Thanks Rayzor, I might have guessed Regus, as I hear their commercials all the time. This is something I am going to consider for the future, thank you for the info!

This is a small office I rent in downtown - I used to trade from home but the office is good, it gets me out of my house and gives me some separation between work and play. Thanks for the thread.

I LOVE that message between the monitors. Class.

My desk. Two displays on the desk, one on the wall. Sorry for overexposure on monitors, not a whole lot of light coming into the room right now.

Still haven't gotten my office setup, but this is what I'm currently using. I have good speakers for music, guitars to pick up between trade decisions, and of course a handgun sitting on the printer.

Anyone have tips on turning there trading spots into a more "stress free" area, such as a calming atmosphere, something like pictures on the wall?

I'm going to upload a couple pics here in a sec of my desk.

i was actually thinking of getting a small desk fountain, but really want one that had some small lighting and maybe did some type of vapor/smoke from the water as well.. still havnt found anything like that yet.. also i like the looks of bonsai trees, could add one of those too..

This is more like it. It is funny that people actually clean their trading area before taking a picture. You'v got to see the pile of Chinese and pizza delivery empty boxes in my office before my maid shows up. She would hate me if it was not for the big tip she get.

Cheers!!

Believe it or not, but some of us (ok, can only speak for myself) actually keep our desks clean like in the picture all the time I am a believer in the principle that if the outer world is cluttered, it's a reflection of the fact that my inner world is also quite cluttered, rendering me unable to concentrate or focus. So for me, it's clean desk, or no trading (except for my plate at my desk during lunch, and a coke bottle).

I trade noticeably more in the "zone" and confidently when my desk and surrounding work area is free of clutter. Each night before bed, I make a habit of cleaning my desk and the area I'll be trading. Helps start off each morning fresh, focused and neat.

OK, I read through the thread, and of course, I am now green with envy. I've got my 3 monitors, but nothing to write home about.

One thing I thought might add to the discussion is this little widget I that I find very handy:



One place to get it is here: SIIG CE-MT0P11-S1 Desk Mount for Flat Panel Display The company makes a bunch of other configurations too...

Besides making it easy to move the monitor around, when I have a bunch of reading to do, I turn it 90 degrees, and viola! the monitor looks like a big sheet of paper. Portrait mode also works well when I want to look at a chart with a bunch of lower studies on it.

Finally, when the market is chopping around, I can always tilt it about 15 degrees, and instantly it starts trending! (Wouldn't it be nice if that were true!)

It actually is true (depending on how you look at it, quite literally). Just enter on a pullback and have something near the channel top as target.

Well, that was a little comical exaggeration regrading a pile of pizza boxes, etc. But I used to be a real neat freak and highly organized in every aspect, as for most engineers, until was accused of being annal retentive by a sweet and slow talking Southern redneck girl. She convinced me that if I let some of that stuff go I will have a much less cluttered inner world. Boy was she right, my handicap dropped to 6, my bank account started to vanish, and my inner world and thoughts became so uncluttered that I can get lost in there now without a point of reference.

Cheers!

Unless Morgan Freeman just started trading and Harry knows him personally, then yes, I'd say it's likely a joke.

Yes I know, it was quite good -- saw it on a full 70mm IMAX screen on Saturday. Over an hour of footage with the imax camera, and maybe may favorite of the three dark knight movies.

lol - same here - same day, also on an IMAX screen - absolutely amazing to watch.

First time I've seen a movie on IMAX.

I presume you weren't @ the IMAX in Siam Paragon, Bangkok were you?

You presume correctly

IMAX has come out with the "IMAX Digital" theater screens which is in fact nowhere near the size of a real, old school IMAX screen because the old ones are more expensive to make, maintain, take up more space, etc... so one has to be careful because the new so-called IMAX screens are not differentiated on their web site, need firsthand information to be sure that the movie is in true imax format!

Yes; she would just need to be robotically "desk-toped" and do my Auto-Trading while I'm out doing other business Meanwhile, I'm a Discretionary Trader, consequently, she would be a distraction to my trading ... I'm not wont to such distraction.

Anybody have any experience with sit/stand adjustable desks?

GeekDesk® Adjustable Height Desks - GeekDesk Max

Thinking about picking one of these up, seem to be pretty well priced, but I'll save some cash by buying the frame only and making a top myself.

That's a fancy one.







This one is manually adjusted ( hand crank ) but half the price.

Ahh, a woman who knows her place in way around a kitchen is a woman who knows how to please a man. Good times. What I just said is unarguably absolute truth, though some delusional folks out there may think it sounds sexist.

Nice chair. I considered them a couple times, but just couldn't talk myself into spending that kind of money on a chair.

Nice desk too, I wish I had a desk that deep. We learn from our mistakes

I had Aerons back in 1998-2001 when I worked at buy.com and various spinoffs from there, they are really nice chairs, but I wish they had higher backs for better neck support.

I have posted mine before but here is a slightly arty shot for the thread. Like Mike, I have my dog by my side when trading and she is trained to identify trends :P

Mac mini is for surfing when I don't need the beast turned on or for downloading my favourite tv shows while I'm in bed.

Had the same monitor setup for a while and the computer specs are below. Bought it mid last year and designed it to last 3-5 years depending on what technology does.

i7-2600k overclocked to 4.4ghz
Asus P8z68-v Pro
Asus 6950 2Gb
16Gig 2133 Ram
Many hard drives
Silverstone FT02 USB3
TV tuner card
Logitech Dinovo for Notebooks (Unlike the current trend of clicky keyboards I like notebook slim line ones)
Logitech Performance MX mouse.

The notebook, pen and ruler are my old fashion Trading Journal tools. I have tried many different trading log tools but I haven't found anything that beats it.
